I split a tar.bzip file in 3.5GB chunks and stored each chunk in a different SD card. After copying the data to all cards, I inserted one by one and opened it to verify that the file was there, then I removed the card safely.

Now I'm copying the data back, but one of the cards shows no files. It has the correct name, but no files appear. I've retrieved all other chunks with no problems.

What can I do to recover the missing data from the problematic card? Is there a certain location where the file should be?

dmesg right after inserting it:

  • You can try file recover software of your choice but based on the error the filesystem is corrupt. – Ramhound Apr 14 '15 at 15:36
  • Try using Piriform Recuva (assuming your on Windows?) – user409554 Apr 14 '15 at 20:53
