SD card formatted - need help in recovery

#1 Post by maxxx12345 »


i accidentally formatted the wrong SD card and am trying to recover some code files, i stored there. These are PHP and Python files mainly (the sd card was a system sd card for a raspberry pi).

The most recovery porgrams i found so far recover my pictures, audio files etc. quite fine, but never my code files.

Which program is recommended to do this job? (FYI: I am now using a Mac mainly, but i have a Windows as well as a Linux machine available, so i can use software for every OS type).

Thanks for you help in advance.

Best regards!
