Wrong Drive

#1 Post by didthat1x »

- I was recovering photos from my Android phone SD card. After 5 minutes and several "recoveries" during Pass 1, I got a Wrong Drive error. The error message allowed for Cancel / Try Again / Skip. Only Cancel had any effect. It allowed the PhotoRec program to continue to scan sectors. I had to select Cancel several thousand times (really) to walk it through all 3.8 million sectors a few thousand at a time.
- My 35 photos and videos that I wanted weren't recovered. Only thumbnails. Trying again.
