Flash File Recovery is a fast and simple in use utility for image and video files recovery. This is an essential tool for any owner of a digital camera, allowing efficient recovery of any corrupted or lost file from damaged or even formatted media.

Compact Flash cards are one of the most popular ways to keep your information . They are small removable storage devices 43mm x 36mm x 3.3mm in size. As far as shape and portability are concerned, they are much more convenient than carrying around something as fragile and awkward shaped as a "compact" disc.

Compact Flash standard was created by SanDisk Corporation in 1994. This year CF celebrates 11 years. Even though it has many competitors, Compact Flash is still very popular.

First of all it needs to be said that Compact Flash is based on flash technology and it doesn't require a battery to retain data. It means that you can keep your data on a Flash Card and and not worry about electricity. By the way, it consumes only five percent of the power required by small disk drives.

Also, Compact Flash cards have good protection characteristics. Don't worry if it falls down on the floor, there will not be anything wrong with your data. We cannot say the same about CD or floppy disks. On another hand we should remember that Compact Flash cards are very high-technology devices, so they do not like any physical influence. We do not suggest playing dodgeball with your flash cards, but they are durable nonetheless.

There are some very interesting facts about Compact Flash cards. If you have a CF card you can be sure that it will work more than 100 years - it has very large an operating shock rating. Another interesting thing is that Compact Flash data is protected by built-in dynamic defect management and error correction technologies. So there could be very small number of mistakes.

There are two types of Compact Flash cards - Type I (CFI) and Type II (CFII). CFI cards are used as storage devices. CFII cards are used as modems, Ethernet, serial, digital phone cards, laser scanners, BlueTooth wireless, 802.11b Wi-Fi LAN, etc. CFI cards are thinner (3.3 mm) and require less power than their CFII counterparts (5.0 mm).

CompactFlash cards contain either flash memory or a miniature hard drive. The number of flash chips used and how densely they're packed onto the card determines flash memory card capacity. Controllers, which determine how data is written to the card, are a key component. Controller architecture drives data write speed and serves as the communication link between the memory card and the camera. The write speed of a miniature hard drive is determined by how fast its head can drop data into tracks as it media spins, as well as by its controller. No matter how efficient the camera-controller communication, data can't be transferred to the card any faster than the memory or rotating media is capable of receiving it.

One of the biggest pluses of Compact Flash is its costs. It costs a little cheaper than its competitors, especially when we talk about large capacities of different cards. Now you can get 7 capacities: 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.

CF is very popular between different devices and producers. Such companies as Canon, LG, Phillips, Casio, Konica Minolta, Polaroid, Epson, NEC, Psion, Hewlett-Packard, Nikon, ARCA Technologies, Kodak, Panasonic, and others produce new devices each year which support CF standard. You can find CF slots in digital cameras, handheld PCs, digital audio players, and other devices.
