perhaps this is in the wrong forum section but wasn't entirely sure where to post.
Quick background -
About a week ago, two of my mates found that their Micro Sd cards in their phones had been wiped of their precious photos.
Both using the same phone - and it happened on the same day. A quick check lead me to understand it was linked to a manufactureres update and being the nice fried i am, i had a go at recovering the photos from one disc which was a complete success using a freely available piece of recovery software.
Thinking it was only a matter of repeating the process, i took on the second card.
When i insert it into my laptop, it first of all takes some time to recognise there's even been a card inserted, but once it appears in the file explorer, i right-click on it and instantly file explorer is " not responding "
I've tried several recovery tools, but even with the disc inserted, none of them seem to even recognise that it is a drive that might be recoverable. My gut instinct is that the card is showing as RAW format, but even software that claims to be able to deep scan such discs fails to recognise it.
Im wondering, is there any possible recommendation you might have for such a problem ??
I'd love to think it might be worth another try on Windows 7 rather than the problem laden Windows 10, but im not hopeful.
Any help you might be able to offer would be very much appreciated.
