Hello Tech dwellers!

I would like help to get back my data on my SD card which is in use by my NIKON D3300 camera (good camera btw)

ok.. let do try my best to explain you the situation here

BASICALLY

i took ALOT of photos this summer using my camera , it has a LEXAR 16GB card which is quite enough for images under my use


my sister wanted to show my parents the awesome pictures later the summer, during this period i was very busy as i was getting my admission form to collage ; the parents were happy to see the amazing pictures...sad that was the last time someone ever saw those pictures :( unless i can get help here :D



OK COOL... WHAT THE PROBLEM KIDDO?

after getting free and all , i wanted to see those precious memories BUT....i couldn't... the images just disappeared...BUT not formatted nor deleted ......

how can i say this ?

ok before we go further in... whats that strange file thing?

its quite heavy and im quite sure those are my photo gummed together like that monstrous chewing gum we made in our youth...

these are some photos i took today ... but.. isnt it strange that these photos are under 800MB and are numbered as 001 002 ...

meaning to the camera.. these are brand new photos....

the 800MB doesnt equate to 15GB of the drive used , right?


using the file viewer on my camera , my old summer pics still dont appear :c

i think the massive file chewing gum thing is my photos.. even weirder is that :

the right click > properties shows that its 0 bytes..


what kind of logic is that?

please help me
