microsd recovery

#1 Post by muku »


I have a corrupted fat partition in a micro sd card used in my old Android phone. I've taken the image with dd and I am trying to recover the partition with testdisk. If I try to repair the boot sector, the partition can be accessed but it contains only a few empty folders and most of the data is missing. And then when I try to recover files with photorec, it only finds the deleted files but none of the files I had inside the card when it got corrupted. Any ideas?
