How to recover photos from corrupted SD cards?
« on: May 07, 2018, 01:29 »
Hi bros, my microSD card died and I lost >1 year's worth of photos of my kids...Irony is that it died while I was trying to backup to my Macbook.
I am willing to pay for data recovery, can you tell me where to go? Don't want to try DIY free software kind of fixes in case I screw it up further. Thanks for your help!

Incase useful, I previously used http://www.greenergy.com.sg  to recover a HDD, thankfully was successful. Not sure if they can handle SD though? Can explore if can help you?

*Note: Am not affiliated nor working for them, sharing incase helpful for fellow XPians

Before going to those 3rd parties, try using recovery software available as they READ from the souce and write to other destinations.

Many are FOC to try eg trial. I have done so in the past for friends with acceptabe success.

For instance https://www.howtogeek.com/232931/how-to-recover-images-off-a-corrupted-sd-card/ and https://www.easeus.com/data-recovery/card-recovery-software/sd-card-recovery-freeware.htm

Tried the Transcend RecoveRx, but it does not allow me to select the SD card for diagnostics.  Will try those you suggested, thank you
