Disaster averted!

Even someone as meticulously careful as me does it sometimes – I accidentally formatted a memory card that had photos that I had just taken! Thank goodness for file recovery software – I’ve tried several other programs before with mixed success (the ones I’d tried so far have difficulty recovering RAW files) but I just tried EASUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional and it worked faultlessly. Just one file was corrupt after recovery – amazing. I was lucky and got a copy of this software on a covermount disk but I see that it’s quite expensive. On the other hand, if you’ve just done what I did then I recommend this program, albeit on the basis of my first real test. Having said that, my usual software (SanDisk RescuePRO) could not extract the RAW files from the CF card – so it would have been worth it in this case. No photos this time because I’m still working on them!
