  • Avoid inserting SD cards from one camera to another. Due to the fact, every camera has its own format of storing the photos. Since different cameras have a different format of storing photos, inserting the memory card from another camera might result in the formatting of SD card.
  • Always take a backup of your work before you start editing them. Even if something goes wrong there is no need for panic.
