    "Scan and Fix" deleted all pictures from SD card


    Hi,

    I inserted the SD card into the laptop and it asked me to "Scan and Fix (Recommended)" so I did... after it did that, I checked the drive and went into the folders, however, I didn't see any pictures at all... Folders were all intact and I doubt the drive went corrupt since it never asked me to format it... it's just that all of my pictures are gone and I have to do recovery... not sure what the success rate is on that procedure...

    does anybody happen to know why that happened??
    is there a possibility it would've saved the pictures onto the laptop?? I've always clicked on "scan and fix" and it's always worked seamlessly.................

    Thanks

    I have no idea why this would have done this bud, sorry to hear that (wicked sucks!)

    Anyways try using this program called recuva
    Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

    Ultra reliable and does work well. I use it often as needed.

    Let us know if it work,

    Nope, it should not,, unless you choose to format it, there is no excure for that.

    Glad your all set,

    If that card was formatted FAT and there was a bad jumble of the fat table at a major intersection of folder entries you could easily lose the entire folder tree or a good chunk of it to a chkdisk /r. FAT is easily corruptable and "fixing" it frequently involves chopping off whatever limb has gotten hacked up. NTFS is extremely resiliant to that but no cameras or other typical devices you put SD cards into support that of course... :)

    99% of the time you just lose a file or two but there is a small chance that a directory entry itself may get munched and that is a lot worse

    Rare, but it happens. Part of my job is to find ways of preventing that from happening on our devices :)
