Trying to Recover Corrupted Files from Samsung Galaxy SII

#1 Post by EssDub13 » 12 Jun 2014, 01:47

As I was transferring .mp4 video files from my Samsung Galaxy SII to my PC, the connection cord was knocked out of the phone interrupting the file transfer - this also seemed to corrupt the files. The files are still on my phone and my PC, however they will not play in full only a short snippet. I have run PhotoRec on the disk where the files are located (on the actual phone, not on the card). When I did this I had all recovered files saved to a new location on my PC. However, none of the files I need seemed to have been recovered. Can someone help? Have I possibly done something incorrect? I followed the instructions on the wiki exactly. Is there a way to target those files directly with PhotoRec? These videos are important any help would be greatly appreciated!!

As I know in order to recover files from Samusng, we need SD Card recovery software which can deeply scan the partition able, leader record, FAT and file/directory records, etc. and extract them into a normal directory.
