DNG files what are they?
Digital Negative (DNG) is a raw photo format and is not as popular as other similar formats.
This is Adobe's proprietary format, but other companies have already begun to accept it; for example, Pentax and Hasselblad. The DNG file format is capable of storing the complete original RAW file, which, if necessary, can later be manually extracted. These files take up very little space and any changes made to the snapshot will be written directly to the file.
This saves you extra XMP files. On the other hand, you have to backup the entire DNG file every time any changes occur.
Why DNG files can go missing
A DNG file is difficult to convert to a RAW file. Not only does this take a lot of time, but often errors occur that spoil the DNG file, and it becomes unreadable.
There may also be a problem sending the file to any information storage device, as a result of which the DNG file is simply lost somewhere.
Formatting a disk with a DNG file will also delete the snapshot. And you can just unintentionally delete this file.
Let's increase DNG recovery chances!
DNG photo recovery is possible, but only under certain conditions. These include:
- As soon as the picture is gone, stop using the storage medium on which it was located.
- Immediately think about how to retrieve the photo and study this problem.
There is an explanation for all this: data rewriting will happen all too soon, but if you take these comments into account, you can delay the rewriting a bit and you will have every chance of recovering deleted DNG files.
