    Micro SD card recovery


    Hello,

    Today I put my micro sd card inside a USB adapter, and plugged it to one of the USB ports.
    Then I transferred some files into it, and I accidentally moved it in the middle of the work, so that it disconnected.

    Now when I insert the micro SD card (inside the adapter) it tells me that I must format the drive because it has file system that's not recognized.

    Is there anything I can do to fix it rather than formatting it?

    Thanks

    Hi, you can try data recovery software e.g. Recuva. There are many such if you search.

    Thanks guys, I used Recuva at first, but that couldn't recover most of the things, so I just formatted it :O

    Do you edit and overwrite the original? If yes then the file hasn't been deleted and Recuva won't be able to find it .

    If you did a quick format, the recovery software should be able to find everything now, except perhaps the files that were being written when you pulled it out.
