Editing geometry of a disk and save?

#1 Post by renato0072015 »

I have a Sandisk 64Gb SD card that has been formatted several times to try to recover the full space and it does not work, show only 27GB of which is 64Gb. The geometry is so CHS 3586 255 63, the right is 7764 255 63. The problem is that I do not know save, done up the files, go on the geometry menu, change and closing the program but does not work. Use Windows 7 and TestDisk 7.0. Thank you for your patience :)

The Geometry menu only affects how TestDisk searches for partitions.
Can you post the testdisk.log file content after running TestDisk, Advanced, Quit ?
