Rescue data from SD 128GB turned to RAW and shows only 31MB capacity

Hi

I'm back from holiday, has done a lot of pictures and movies and don't know why my SDCX SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB is turned to RAW and has only 31MB capacity.
I have already tried several rescue software, but no success.
Does anyone have any idea how to change from RAW to exFAT without formatting and lost my data?
The problem is I don't have backup of this data.

Raw means it's lost the partition you need to use specific partition recovery software there are lots of free ones if the partition is recovered the files will be there. Don't use file recovery software

I have already tried "MiniTool Partition Wizard", "Gparted", "iCare Data Recovery", "Eeaseus", but still no success.
They cannot find or repair a lost partition.
Any other idea?

It may be too late as you have already thrown so many options at the card but this is actually by Sandisk who know a little about the possible issues

Where did you buy the SDCX SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB?
Did you test the entire disk to see if it isn't a fake drive?

I have tried RescuePro/RescuePro Deluxe for PC, but cannot find anything.
I bought this SD card in a proffesional camera shop.
Howto check entire disk if is not a fake drive?

Don't use the software if you still trying to recover your data.

- Format the Flash disk to default.
- Run H2testw.exe
- It will fill the drive with many small test files and then test (write and read)
H2testw Download

Thx, but how to format to default?
The original Partition was exFAT.

Put it on the computer. On Explorer, right click, choose format. On file system choose the default format.

You wrote that the original Partition was exFAT. Most cameras recognize only Fat32.
When you fist putted the SD on the camera, did you do a format on the camera?
