    I'd like to share my success with Disk Drill: it was all about the last day of a great family trip to Sri Lanka. I let my 7yo daughter play with the camera, which I usually don't agree for that easily. Within 10 minutes... all the pictures were gone. To my greatest relief, Disk Drill recovered the majority of them.
