Pandora Recovery Alternative for Memory Card Data Recovery on Mac (macOS Sierra Compatible)

When using our old Sony camera, my naughty four-year-old son Joe deleted all my pictures to be used for a special report stored in the MMC card. I’m now in a hurry to get them back.

Is there any similar tool to deal with MMC card data recovery that is safe and can keep my picture intact? Help me please!” -- David Gonzalez

The size of a standard MMC card is 24 mm x 32 mm x 1.4 mm, much thinner than SD cards. Like SD and CF cards, MultiMedia Cards are much more rugged than traditional storage media.
