hello,

yesterday I noticed my phone didn't recognize my micro sd card which it has been using for a long while. I restarted my phone, removed and replaced the card but nothing helped. I put the card into its adapter and my computer said it needed to be formatted. I hit ok. I have tried countless data recovery programs, trying for hours, but they only come up with the same 1 video and 1 photo every time if that. the pic and movie aren't even the most recent ones I had taken. I didn't put new data on the card after formatting. can someone please help me? is there a no-fail recovery program out there? can I recover them from dos or something? I am desperate. I just want the pictures back. I just don't know what to do. thanks for reading.

I do not know what recovery programs you have tried but Easeus Data Recovery is one of the better ones. It will let you recover up to 1GB for free. After 1GB you need to purchase a serial to recover the rest. Never recover files back to the SD card you are trying to recover from.

Your memory card is corrupted so that it is inaccessible, using Data Recovery Software you can easily recover your photos and files from memory card instantly.

You can use Recuva for the recovery of your photos.

It seems your files are corrupted. Depending on how important your pictures are you may want to use a professional recovery service. This can be expensive but they will give you a free quote.

recovery software will not work. I have tried at least 10 different programs including recuva. I get nothing. I guess they are actually gone. I can't afford a professional's help. I have no clue how I managed to erase these files without a trace. the government would love me.

I doubt you will get your files back using the following method but it is worth a try. See if using Partition Wizard can find your files. Download the windows version here. Install it and then attach your SD card. Run the program and look for the SD data card in the Partition Wizard UI. Try the partition recovery option. Use the full scan. If it finds a partition check the box next to the found partition and press the Explore files on the selected partition button. See if it lists your files. If it does click Proceed and then finish.

 

Make sure you are selecting your SD card and not your internal drive.

 

Edit: Corrected link for partition software recovery.
