Noob here in need of help

#1 Post by SMooTH » 25 Jul 2017, 16:17

Hey there,

So I have this Samsung Micro SD card 128GB that got corrupted in my phone somehow and I've been trying with Testdisk to recover the files. However, Testdisk doesn't find any partitions after Quick search and deeper search so I'm not sure how to proceed. I've tried looking at the tutorials but nothing seems to cover my specific case and I don't want to be doing some random stuff that'll only make it worse.

Anyone know how I should proceed? Thanks!

Try TestDisk, Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm and Quit.
If it doesn't work, use PhotoRec to recover your data.
Good luck
