Any advice please
I have a corrupted micro sd card, the files are still there but I can't open them. I think my android phone caught a virus through an app or a downloaded pdf file.
I've used command prompt on Windows, check disks and the mirco sd card showed raw drive then when I tried again it showed exfat32. I've used various software packages like zar x, easeus, m3 raw recovery but no joy. When the software starts scanning, it gets half way then restarts the computer. I'm trying to recover the files without formatting it, It's frustrating because the files are there.
Windows command prompt and disk management tells me the partitions on the micro SD card are healthy and there are no problems.
Some people have advised me to use ubuntu to recover the files or to use TWRP Teamwin recovery, if so, can it be possible using ubuntu on virtual machine.
My phone is rooted, can I solve the problem without a P.C?
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
