If the memory card is having some physical damage, for example, you break the card into two pieces, it's suggested to go to a local disk repair store to repair the memory card first. If your SD card is physically healthy, you can use iBoysoft Data Recovery to recover your lost data. 

Among all SD card recovery software, iBoysoft Data Recovery is an easy-to-use and powerful data recovery program to help you restore all deleted and lost data from an SD card. Additionally, this data recovery software works with multiple storage devices, including USB drives, HDDs, SSDs, and even CDs.

Here's how iBoysoft Data Recovery works to recover your lost data.

Step 1. Free download and install iBoysoft Data Recovery on your PC. Follow the onscreen instructions to finish the installation process.

Step 2. Before launching iBoysoft Data Recovery, insert or connect your memory card to the computer. Make sure it's properly and tightly connected.

Step 3. Open iBoysoft Data Recovery on your PC, and you can find your SD card listed in the left column. Select the memory card you want to restore and click Scan.

Step 4. Wait for the SD card scanning process to be done. When the scanning results appear, you can filter the results by choosing the exact path and type. Then preview the selected data to see if they are recoverable or not. Click on Recover to restore your lost data from the SD card.  

You should save the restored data in a new destination instead of keeping them in the original memory card. If you are using a Mac device, check the post below to achieve photo recovery.
