Default Re: Formatting of Micro SD Card

Hello again, thanks for your replies but just to clarify SD Card Recovery was the first thing I tried per the first poster's URL and it did not work. Nor have several other recovery programmes. Also to add to the list now are :-

EasyDrive Data Recovery

To confirm what happened, the micro SD card was working as it should in my Niece's Samsung camera, the pictures were all there and everything was fine. Stupidly, my Brother recognising the SD card as the same type he had in his BB, thought he could just put the card in an view the images on said BB. Why he would want to do that, I don't know but he did.

So after putting the card in the BB, he then accepted the format command, thinking it meant it was preparing the pictures for viewing. Instead all images were wiped and the SD card prepared for use in his device. The card is not corrupt or virus infected, it has just been formatted for use on a BB. The BB file structure has been set up per the usual BB folders and he could save stuff on it if he wanted to. Of course I told him not to and it was removed and is now in my hands.

I realise a format is a bit more fatal than a soft delete but I feel the files must be there somewhere, even if completely chewed to pieces. I just can't find a recovery programme to do it.
