3. Is it possible to recover photos from Nikon DSLR after deletion?

Accidentally delete some important photos from your Nikon DSLR cameras? Don’t be panic. When photos are deleted from your camera memory card, the photos disappear from your camera. However, their contents are not immediately destroyed.
Your camera storage system simply marks the space where the deleted photos occupied as being available for use by the new created file. If you manage to start an undelete process before your camera use that part to create new file, you still have a great opportunity to get the lost files back.

Tips: How to Open NEF Files after Recovery or Corruption

As a matter of fact, images have a lower requirement for file integrity than videos do, which means you can open a picture after it being slightly damaged or overwritten. However, sometimes you could find the recovered NEF files not supported by the current image viewer on your PC. In case it happens, try the following tips:

1. Open NEF files with another image viewer

If the image viewer on your computer cannot open the Nikon raw images, try them in another program, like Gimp, Nikon ViewNX, or IrfanView.

2. Use NEF Image Converter

Sometimes NEF files are not opening in any image views, and we may turn to image file converters. For example, converting NEF into DNG.

Depending on the severity of the damage or corruption on the images, it is always possible that the tips above don’t work. In that case, you may try some free image repair tools and see if you will get the luck.
