What is the worst nightmare for a traveler, photographer or any content creator for that matter ?? For us – its when your memory-card / pen-drive / hard-drive containing the precious moments that you captured during a trip gets corrupted..!! That’s a major heartbreak! And something similar happened to us couple of years back. When my brother Arnab came back from his student-exchange-program in Saint Petersburg (Russia) and we all sat together to see his photos – they were gone! His external hard-drive was not getting detected at all. The hard-drive had got corrupted. We tried all sorts of frugal methods – reconnecting, restarting, changing the USB cable. But nothing worked. We also took it to a local computer repair shop and all they could do was recover hardly few photos. Everything was lost, nothing could be done. Wish I had known about Stellar Photo Recovery software and services then.
