    "Recovery from drive other programs cant detect"

    July 7, 2011  |   By campsoup1988


    Able to recover from a xD memory card, which a dozen other programs (including ones recommended by cnet) either said the card had invalid file system/partition or just did not give an option to recover from the card.


    The program is very technical, minimum explanation (need to know technical information to understand the program) and a dos like user interface (program runs in command prompt)


    I had a xD memory card that had gotten corrupted and I needed to recover the pictures from it. Every other program I tried either said that the file system/partition was not valid or just did not give me the option to recover from the card. I had first tried a few different ways of recovering the partition using testdisk_win but the program was unable to detect my partition so I then tried photorec_win which seems to have recovered all the pictures and videos on the card!
