Recover data from SD card
I usually format my SD card after I save photos to my laptop. Now I want to recover photos those are before I format SD card three times.
Is it possible? then how?

Let's assume for the moment, that the SD-Card doesn't use any Wear Leveling at all.
Let's assume, you'd only taken one picture between formats.
Then nope, you can't. Even if you only use quickformat, the image would be stored on the same location again, so the data would have been overwritten.
Since it is most likely that your SD-Card uses Wear Leveling, the second image would not have been stored to the same location as the first picture taken. You can try your luck with PhotoRec, bu there are no guarantees.
