Unable to restore 64gb ultra microSD, disk too small

#1 Post by vanilla » 24 Jun 2014, 06:39

Hi,

Recently the 64gb card I used on my sony tablet got corrupted when I removed it without unmounting (I forgot). I have a lot of important images and videos that I want to get back. I roughly have 40gb of stuff in this 64gb card (8k images and 100 videos or so). As data recovery softwares did not help me get back all my things, testdisk and photorec is really my last hope.

Testdisk could scan and search my card, but it wouldn't let me recover it as it keep saying my disk is too small. I'm not sure what this means. I want to recover the files on my hard disk or eternal HD so at least I have a copy of the files even if the card can no longer be fixed. I'm not sure if the program is planning to write things directly on the card that why it's out of space?

Sorry I'm not technology expert so I might make no sense.. but the files in the card is really really important to me. Please guide/help me..

:oops:

I copied part of the log file. It's too long to copy all, but the bottom part is just the same.

Please run testdisk / Advanced / Boot and "RebuildBS".
Use the menu list to have a try to list your files.
Please let me know

Thanks for the reply.
But I'm not sure where to find this advanced/boot and rebuild menu?
I'm using testdisk 6.14. Should I get the newer version?

You can use testdisk 6.14.
In testdisk, confirm through until you see to the menu Analyse.
Select "Advanced" and press enter.
Can you upload a screen shot?
I'd like to check, how your partition is listed.
If it appears as unknown, you can use the menu type to add your previous partition type.
Looks like that your sdcard was NTFS formatted?

I have never formatted the card on my own.
But it seems to be NTFS like you said...

Yes it's correct.
Please mark RebuildBS end press enter.
If it's finished, please upload the next screen.
