lexar 16Gb compact flash

#1 Post by kalaigh »

I am trying to recover important photos from a 16Gb Lexar Professional 400X Compact Flash card. I have used both Testdisk and Photorec to no avail. Photorec finds a lot of 1K TXT files. Am I using an incorrect geometry for the media?

Thank you
John K.

Try latest 6.14-WIP. Be careful to choose [Whole] after selecting your partition with PhotoRec.
If you still recover a lot of txt files, disable the txt file familly in FileOpts.
Good luck
