Recently my memory card (Samsung Evo 64GB, almost full) was showing 'corrupt' on my Tablet. So I tried to recover the important details using photorec. It ran for around 1 hour but 0 files have been found.

the output is something like this

     Partition                  Start        End    Size in sectors
 1 * FAT32 LBA                1   0  1 61055  63 32  125040640 [NO NAME]

Please help

  • Try testdisk for recovery and make sure the right device is chosen! – George Udosen Dec 26 '18 at 15:55

    Did you have all the filetypes selected? Did you have Paranoid or Keep corrupted files selected? Was the card actually being read (if it was in a usb reader, was it "flashing", the reader works, etc)? How much was it able to read, maybe it was only left with a sector or two accessible – Xen2050 Dec 26 '18 at 16:52
  • The following link and links from it can help you analyze the problem, and if you are lucky, solve it. I think PhotoRec is a good tool for this purpose, but there are a few things to try in order to get access to the card. Analysis of the problem – sudodus Dec 26 '18 at 18:31
