August 04 2017 02:28 am/ Post By Yoli Software to Digital Camera Recovery

I have used my Canon EOS M6 to take a lot of photos for my little girl. Yesterday I deleted all of them unintentionally and the worst thing is I have no backup! There are too many photo recovery software after I did a search, but I don't know how to differentiate them. Anyone can give me a suggestion? 

Canon cameras have been popular for many years for their brilliant performances. In reality, other than accidental deletion, there are various reasons might cause photo losses on your Canon cameras like virus attack, corruption of media storage card, and SD card formatting. So for Canon camera users, it becomes more important to learn how to get back deleted/lost photos and videos.
