SD Card empty

#1 Post by yurff98 »


I had troubles with a quality SD Card 32 Go. It was almost full, then I try to delete almost the all of it, but it had an error in the middle.

Then I tried to use testdisk, it found a partition, but there was a problem with the boot system.
So I tried to rebuilt it, but didnt work.

Since then, it doesn't find the partition at all, even with deep search, so right now, i have no idea of what to do ?

I saw some options like geomertry and other stuff, but I really have no idea of what they are and how to use them, so I don't want to mess it up.

Somebody can help me ou ?

Thank you

If your goal is to recover your data, try PhotoRec

If you want to reuse your card, delete the partition, create a new one and reformat it. If it failed, the card is probably damaged, use the warranty in this case to get a new one.
