One question has "RAW" files explicitly noted, the other has "deleted" photos explicitly noted.

Do we need both? Should the two questions and answers be merged? If I was using Google to answer a question would it make sense to show both results? Does it make sense to keep the term "SD Card" in the titles?

Deleted and formatted are slightly, but significantly, different scenario's. I'm not sure that it's exactly a duplicate. The odds of success are far better if simply deleted and simpler software can often be used. I think that's probably enough distinction to keep them separate.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I didn't vote to close the new one as a duplicate because RAW is a special case. It does happen that any current data recovery software will cover that case, though. \$\endgroup\$
