Recovering Deleted Data on SanDisk Card - Data Recovery?

Q: Recovering Deleted Data on SanDisk Card - Data Recovery?

Dear Friends.
Hope this finds you well!
I'm not certain this is in the best forum, but it is a Windows 7 computer
I was trying to do another sets of DVD's from existing MP4 files from a SanDisk Ultra 32GB card. These would then be used with DVD Flick and ImgBurn to make the DVD's. The first(2) DVD's worked well but somehow a few of the files were not copied entirely. So, I was redoing these again to make certain I had ALL the files for the next (2) DVD's.
These are files my older brother entrusted to me for me to convert them to a DVD format. They are files of his daughters nearly entire basketball season [frames] of about 70 files and were sentimental to him and his daughter.
I feel personally responsible to correct this if it is at all possible!? It could get ugly
It was an honest error on my part as I mistakenly deleted what was titled Video 100 on the SanDisk which contained all these MP4 files. I didn't realize I was removing them from the SanDisk. I'm hoping there is a free date recovery app I could use for this one application so that an expensive license would not be required!?
Thank You in advance for your care, compassion and cooperation. I'm stuck in the mud...

Preferred Solution: Recovering Deleted Data on SanDisk Card - Data Recovery?

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)


Hi there,

Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section, feel free to point me to the proper place if needs be.

I just put my 32GB Sandisk Extreme Pro SD Card into my laptop and nearly had a heart attack. When I go into the folder, none of my photos/videos are visible. The strange thing is, Windows tells me there is 13.4 GB free of 29.7 GB. I took some pics just there to see if it still functions and it does, I can see the 4 pics I just took. But what has happened to my other data? Here is a screenshot of some odd looking files that now show up on the card, if anybody could assist I would be really grateful:

Thank you,

Hey guys n gals.

I accidentally delted a few .mp4 files from my GoPro's SD card from my first scuba diving trip. No good I did it through Windows, but they are not in the Recycle Bin. When prompted to delete, it said "are you sure you want to permanently delete these items?" Unfortunately, I had a few good files selected as well.

I've tried the free EaseUS data recovery software, and while it has found the files and "recovered" them, Windows Media player gives me an error message when I try to play it back.

Any ideas? Thanks so much!!

I was reformatting a friends Laptop with a new O/S. I backed up 680MB of pictures, documents onto my external Hard drive. I checked twice that the data was on there before reformatting. After I reformatted for some reason it won't let me access this file on my external H.D. It says no access to the F drive and says the file is empty. I am able to get into other files on the external just not this particular file. I tried using a program called Power Data recovery to find the files off the deleted C drive partition. It found some if not all of the files. However, when I go to access them it say's you can't get into the files or a word doc comes up in all these weird letters. I know my chances are slim to none here, but I guess you never know. What is my best option? Should I try and repair the files that were extracted from the Deleted partition. Repair the file on the External HD. I would really appreciate any suggestions or programs to help. Thanks.

Hi everyone

I've been searching and searching try to figure out a solution here. Basically, I had a zip file (which had a bunch of images in it) in a folder on my PC.

The exact destination was: C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\Jack\Random Files\Pictures

Anyways, on the 24th of March (2012), I deleted this file, and then removed it from the Recycle Bin. I now realize that I need to recover this zip file. Since removing the file, I have not put any new files in that specific folder titled "Pictures" (hopefully that's a good thing).

I've tried using a number of file recovery programs, majority of which I found here:


Unfortunately, no luck yet. For some reason, it brings up files from 2010, but will not bring up this file which I only deleted a week and a half ago.

Thank you in advance to everyone who takes the time to help me out.


A:Recovering deleted data, Windows 7 Home Edition (x64)

Hi Mark and welcome to Seven Forums.
If this is on a disk that has system protection turned on right click in an empty space in the folder and select properties. Go to the Previous Versions tab and let it populate. With a bit of luck you may have a version of the folder from before the date you deleted it. Double clicking on the version will open it in explorer and you can copy back your missing file.

A recent attempt to install (downloaded from the HP site) printer software caused my stable XPsp3 Compaq/HP PC to constantly lock within a few mouse clicks from start up. Uninstalling the software didn't help and I couldn't restore to a pre-install restore point. Reinstalling the software from a borrowed disc didn't do anything either.

I ran the Compaq on-board system recovery software from boot up (from a partition on the disc I gather). Rather than go for the more destructive back-to-completely-original option, I went for one that said I'd have to reinstall non-factory software - but that data files would be unaffected.

Lo and behold the near-opposite has occurred: all the self-installed software remains intact but data files from my account have been wiped. My wifes account data is still there however.

I've a recent enough back-up available but will have lost honeymoon photos. At least, they're not available via XP/Explorer - though I assume they haven't been written over yet on disc. Any idea how to go about retrieving these files?

Any help would be appreciated..

Hi! I recently moved a micro sd card from one phone to another. It is now corrupt and says it needs to be formatted. I downloaded the free trial of sandisk recoverypro and can see that the files are still there. Do I need to pay for the license to recover the files before I format the card? If I just format the card without recovering the files first, will I lose all those files? Can I just allow windows to format the card? If I put the card in the computer, it says "You need to format the disk in drive F: before you can use it. Do you want to format it?" Thanks for your help!

I recently erased an important document on my Sandisk drive. I've tried several free trials to recover my files but they don't allow me to actually get it. They're also very expensive (like, for example, RescuePro). Does anyone know how I can recover a file that I deleted two weeks ago??? Thanks, I'd greatly appreciate the help.

A:Recovering a deleted file from a Sandisk USB drive

the chances of recovering it on a flash drive are slim. The longer you wait to recover a file the less of a chance there is. Try using a file recovery program. There are many free ones on the net. If you haven't written or used the drive, you might be successful.

I originally had Vista on my computer when purchased. The computer had C:, D:,. The HP recovery was on D: with everything else on C:

I deleted the Data from the D: recovery disc as I had no more use for Vista and most of the programs that came from HP would not work with Windows 7. I have recovery disc if I do need them at a later date to reinstall Vista.

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on C: This left D: partition empty. I have most recently used D which is about 13 GB for4 abackup of some of my programs.

I also have another 640 GB hard disc which is G: that I use as backup for my windows system.

I would like to do away with the D: partition because I can also put all my program backups on G: as well.

How do I delete the D: partition and incorporate that space into the C: partition? I think I know but am not sure of myself and would like advice.

I forgot to mention that C: drive is also 640 GB as well.l

What are your suggestions as to deleting D: or leaving it?


A:Deleted Vista Recovery Data

First you have to clear or delete D which is in this tutorial.
Partition or Volume - Delete

Then you extend the C into the unallocated space that was drive D.
Partition or Volume - Extend

Not to hard. Just follow the steps. The tuts are well laid out.

Tricky to word this properly as I found out searching the web...
There are tons of info and technique to recover files delete "from" and existing recycle bin.
My question is rather simple.....
Using a partition recovery program, I have found a couple partitions with Recycle bin folders that have date in them.
I have not had luck opening any of the files.
Is there a proper restore method for the content in these "recovered recycle bins"
such as would be done when your restore files from the bin on desktop?

I don't know if this question has ever been asked.

I want to know if anyone knows of a piece of software or a way to clean deleted file entries from directories permanently.

I'm asking because I have downloaded a few freeware and shareware programs and tested them for recovering deleted files. I did get one of them to work and recover the deleted files but the problem is it takes so long to scan the drive and it displays so many results it takes forever to search through them for the files I actually want to recover. So what I want to do is run some software that will clear all deleted file entries from my directory listings permanently (zero them out or something.) This way the next time I have to recover a deleted file the list will be much shorter after scanning the drive.

I have Windows XP Pro installed and have 2 physical drives with a total of 3 partitions. The first drive is formatted with 2 NTFS partitions and the 2nd drive is formatted with 1 FAT32 partition (moved this drive with a lot of data from another PC and don't want to bother reformatting to NTFS.)

Anyways the last time I scanned the E drive (FAT32 - 80GB) it took about ten minutes to scan the drive for recoverable files and listed som 50,000 - 60,000 files that could be possibly be recovered. Even using filters to limit the list I came up with 27,000 JPG files (as I was trying to recover about a dozen JPGs I accidentally deleted.) I was able to find them without an incredible amount of di... Read more

Hi everyone..

My external USb Wd mybook box has 1 tb Seagate Sata 3 and i use original Wd disc as W7 installed... in My PC Case as sata II

Today my old problem appears again as Corrupted disc...
I have Get Data Back NTFS (and i used before plenty of times for recovery, loss data or unwanted deletions) but..

This time im stuck.. Becouse the disk i try to recover includes 870 gb (about) used disk space (only audio files) only 50gb (about) empty space... Thats too big for me to recover to other disks.. i don't have enough spaces that my other disks can handle..

I have about 300 gb FREE disk space in several disks or partitions include My thinkpad SL510 Notebook..
So my question is
wit keeping my lost data in corrupted disk first, can i take them slowly to this 300 gb spaces (i know i can) and after create somehow emty space (deleting those recovered 300 gb + 50 on corrupted disk) and
use that empty space for more recovery. ???? Or smilar solutions.. Becouse DISC PRICES IS HEAVY nowadays and really i'm out of budget with buying some
equipments upgrades..
Like creating slowly slowly some extra spaces (don't know how)

I know i look silly in situation becouse i know u should never write to same disc if you dont want to say goodbye to your files..

A:Minitool Power Data Recovery or Runtime Get Data Back, which


Both are good programs and i would recommend purchasing both ( if you can afford ). Both has it's own pros and cons.
"GetDataBack" is good at virtual reconstruction of damage/unrecognizable file systems but i personally found it weak at recovering image files. It recovers images but most of them seems to be corrupted in my testings. Also you need to purchase seperate versions for FAT and NTFS ( GetDataBack simple is garbage ).

On the other hand, "Power data Recovery" works with both FAT and NTFS and it is better at recovering image files. Another proven tools is "R-Studio" which has quiet good reputation among DR professionals. It's user interface is not newbie friendly but has lot's of options which no other tools offers.

i have a scSi disk 36.4GB, i lost information from it and tried to recover with other recovery softwares to no avail finally i got winhex & got the professional licence.

i can now be able to see all the information on the 1 whole NTFS partition, but the problem is that i can't be able to recover it.
when ever i open the logical drive i can see all the information and most of the information is stack up in a "free space" which is around 33gb which i can be able to see has all the information that i need.
i have tried to recover the free space but its only copied to the location that i specify and no recoveries are made.
recovering the files by type/ name has bore no fruits.

a freind told me i have to curve out that area and use data extractors to get the information out of that area (freee space).

the information in that drive are sql data bases and zip files. whats the header for sql.

what techniques do i use to curve out that space and be abele to extract the information, for i can even read the information in text format.

which are the data extractors available in the market

A friend of mine gave me a 32GB SD card that came out of a digital camera. They were hoping to use the photos that were on it to make some christmas cards this year. She said she was trying to upload photos from the card, that it was acting very slow and gave up. Pulled the card from the PC and later when she tried again it said it couldn't recognize the file system and said she should format the card. I took the card and put it through Photorec, CardRecovery, Runtime GetDataBack for FAT and NTFS and all 4 didn't detect a single file start point or any data left on the card. I've done data recovery on hard drives several times and there's always something left behind, but this is the first time I've ever messed with a flash drive and I'm wondering if I should be expecting anything different when trying to find data that might be left or if there is some better software out there I could try.

I have 2 problems, mine is recovering data from a DVD-R & a friend is looking for my help in recovering data from a "corrupted" Flash Drive.

I was burning data on a DVD-R multiple sessions disk when my Burner crapped out while using Nero. I now have a new Burner & when I go back into this disk I can only read data from my 1st session when I compare the #s from Nero's disk info tool, however it also shows that session 5 is still open?? but I cannot read anything from sessions 2, 3 & 4. Looking around I spotted CD Recovery Tool Box Free 1.1.7 is there anything more recent and or better that would let me try to recover the data on this disk. The data in session 5 is still on my HD but I would like to be able to recover the data in the other sessions, worst possible case even just the file names would be a small plus.

Now for the Flash Drive. It is a Lexar 8 Gig & what supposedly happened is that Peter lent it to a fellow employee so he could extract some data (probably a mistake). When he got it back a few minutes later & tried to use it all he got was a message that it was corrupted. As it has all of his product codes, phone numbers & personal sales data for the last year he is really desperate to try & recover the data. He does not have a computer of his own, so he has no backup (another bad idea). He has gotten a new Flash Drive a Sony 8 Gig, but I have told him that he better go out & get a 2nd one to use as a back... Read more

I have been using a Kingston 1gb data traveler to store work however as I was saving my word document to go home Word 2007 crashed and restarted itself, it did not however bring up any autorecover options. I therefore thought everything was ok and pulled out the USB. When I tried to plug this in again it says 'USB device not recognized' This device may have malfunctioned etc. It then proceeds to install the USB as an unknown device and appear like this in the device manager.

I desperately need to recover this data, I was designing a website and had 25 pages of text on the USB stick.

What I've Tried

Plugging the USB in another machine. This bought up exactly the same error

I have a larged data drive that failed a disk check. It stalls when starting stage two (I belive that is the verification of indexing). I have been able to back-up all of the folders except for a large folder of raw video. The PC locks up when I attempt to access/copy this folder (it appears to be part of the problem). I want to make an attempt to recover this data before reformatting the drive.

The check disk fails both at start up or if I run from the desktop both in regular and safe mode. Does anyone have tips for recoverying this data?

A:Data Recovery of data drive

You could try using a 98 boot disk and then run ntfsdos from there to access the ntfs partitions. Then try an xcopy of that file to another drive.

Another method could be to use Winrar to create a multipart archive and store it on another drive. This might chunk it up enuff.

Or boot to recovery console from the CD and then run chkdsk /r which marks any sectors that are corrupt as bad so they will not be used again, even after format. All take some time, but they are readily availalble fixes.

Alternatively, you could create an image of the drive and save that somewhere else, then run your drive manufacturers disk utility to check integrity of the disk.

Hope this helps

After shrinking the second partition, win 7 had a hiccup and reported the remaining single partition is now in a 'RAW' format. I still have data on the drive that i would like to recover prior to reformatting it.

Apparently, on reading up about "RAW' files, the data is still there. What i would like to do is to somehow view the data and extract portions of it at a time to other smaller hds. From what i has read i can only extract everything to another 1.5tb drive, which i just don,t have available. If i can find a solution, i will eventually reformat and reuse my 1.5tb drive.

So my question is:

How can i extract portions of data from a "raw" drive to a second smaller drive?

Thanks for looking

You could try Recuva (free) file recovery.

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

If that doesn't work there are also other paid programs that may work.
There may be other free programs, I'm not sure.

I used "[email protected] UNDELETE", and it worked very well for me.
They have a free TRIAL program, so you can see what can be restored and restore very small files.
It does cost for the version that can restore all files.

UNDELETE Files - [email protected] UNDELETE Software recovers deleted files, folders & partitions

hope this helps

I recently copy and pasted my laptop's hard drive local disk data on my external hard drive. I then deleted all the data on my hard drive. How can I put all the copy and paste data back? Or is it impossible and I need to reinstall everything? I also copied the "Users" folder, can I at least restore everything on my background? Also, when I right click my windows background, the graphic card options aren't there anymore. I deleted the data and used a Window 7 Installation Disk to recover. I dont seem to have any security either. Do I need to buy all of them again?
I'm not sure what its called, so the thing I'm calling background has the options Screen Resolutions, Gadgets, and Personalize when you right click on it.

All of the data, not programs, that are on your hard drive can be copied back to your internal drive.
Programs will have to be reinstalled one by one
You should not have to repurchase any of the programs you currently own, developers understand crashes

Have had an XP system crash in notebook - can't enter XP in standard or safe mode. Need to recover data from the drive. Pulled the drive, installed as a slave in my Desktop system, and can access the drive data using the Desktop's XP system. However, the Documents and settings user directory I need to access is "not available". A tech I spoke with says this is a security function of XP - becuase there was a password set for the USER ID in the notebook's operating system, even as ADMINISTRATOR on the Desktop system, I don't have rights to access the protected data.

Anyone know of a workaround to access those directories so I can copy off the data before reformatting and reloading the drive?

My mother board went out on my old computer. I got the hard drives out and bought a Diablotex SSD to USB 3.0 Sata Adapter to get my music off the old hard drive. The drive will show up in disk management but it is write protected so I cannot initialize it. I am pretty handy with computers but don't know where to go from here. I had everything backed up except my music.
An help is greatly appreciated.

my problem is that i had windows XP installed on my pc then after a while it started geting slow due to number of programs and less storage space and perhaps a few viruses as well. then it would hangup as soon as i log in to the windows so i had to install another version of windows XP. I did so but when the new version scanned the drive that had previous window (XP) it did something with the clusters either removed them or deleted them (i dont remember) so nw i have lost all my folders that i earlier had on that drive i.e. folders made on desktop or "my documents". Only the non window folders are there but all the data i stored in window related folders is gone, as all the folders are gone as well, but the catch is that the space of that drive is still occupied, can you find me any way that i can recover my files??? please please help me

Hello forum.

Thank you for having such a great resource!

I'm not too sure this is in the correct forum, if not I apologize. I have a windows XP machine that has data recovery software installed on it. I have a external drive (HFS+) that can no longer mount on a Mac. My data recovery software can see all the data, the problem arises when I attempt to save that data to a new exernal. Since XP sees the new external as NTFS, I cant copy the HFS+ files to it. Is there a work around to this?

Thank in advance
