I had a memory card from a friend and we were trying to copy some pics to and fro my laptop.
TL,DR: Need a software to recover undeleted files from a MMC. That's right, I need to do undeleted files recovery.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
What happened: While copying, I got an error that the disc is not present. After clicking on Retry, windows asked me to check the disc and reported its not the same disc that was inserted earlier. I had to cancel finally because nothing else was working.
What did I try: I tried Recuva and restored 436 files. She said they were pics of a trip from 5 months earlier and no pics were recovered from her last vacation that were present on memory card before MMC corrupted
I did notice 5 files recovered from the set that we wanted to recover. These were the files that we "cut" and pasted. Logically, deleted from MMC before it got corrupted
My logic of what happened: The files that were deleted (from her trips earlier and the ones that i "cut") were recovered. This may have happened because the softwares tried to recover only deleted files.
What I need: Some software that searches for undeleted files and recover. Every google search and forum research that I have tried talks about undeleting files.
I dont want to experiment with the card's current state without extracting the files first. If anyone knows about same case happened somewhere else, please let me know what did you try that worked
