Windows 7: recover files using chkdsk

27 Oct 2018   #11

Windows 7 HP 64

Fist we need to know what you're trying to do.
Tell us the story of the SD. Is it from a camera? Is it formatted as FAT32 or NTFS?
Why did you run check disk?
Check disk won't recover deleted or system files files. It fixes the allocation table (it looks for inconsistencies).

Check Disk or CHKDSK is a system tool that helps to verify the file system integrity of a volume and fix the logical file system errors including bad sectors.

When you run CHKDSK, this utility does whatever it needs to do in order to fix the logical file system. CHKDSK’s attempt to ‘fix’ an issue could also result in data loss. CHKDSK process consists of five stages out of which three are major while two are optional stages. You can also see different stages of CHKDSK when you run the utility in CMD.

Stage 1. Checks and Verify Files
Stage 2. Checks indexes on Volume
Stage 3. Checks Security Descriptors for each Volume
Stage 4. Verification of Data (optional)
Stage 5. Verifies Free Space (optional)
