Retrieving old RAW files when deleted off SD card

Hi there,

I'm hoping that I have come to the right place as my issue isn't specifically for Camera Raw but hopefully someone is able to help me. Apologies if this sounds silly!

So I started shooting more last year in RAW on my DSLR but always imported the files onto my MAC directly through the camera (I have since bought a card reader to do this) using the Photos app on my Macbook. This probably sounds stupid but I have just realised that all of my photos, including the photos I shot in RAW imported as JPEGs as apparently the Photos app has trouble importing RAW files. I have since cleared my memory cards which deleted the original image files but what I want to know is if it's possible to retrieve the RAW files even though they're all on my external hard drives and on my laptop as JPEGs? Hope that makes sense!

Thanks in advance for your help!

That's perfectly possible providing you stopped using the memory card after doing the deletions. If you have saved new photographs onto the card then you may have a problem. Below is an article how to do it-fortunately you have a card reader already.

If the raw files are still on the external hard drive, can you not attach the drive and import the raw files from that drive?
