|Recovery software run against a hard drive, usb stick, memory card will find and recover what it can…|
However two years is a long time… But if the drive hasn't been defragged, and not "too much" written to it.. who knows what may be found…?
My limited experience with photos stored on an SD card is that when you download them they come down in the jpeg (or whatever format used for them in the camera). Then you need an appropriate viewer to "view" them…
A quick look on the web shows it uses JPEG ad EXIF formats.. so likely you are looking at the latter? But remember that the file suffix or properties ought to indicate the format?
Do you have the manual for your c530?
