MICROSD

Post Posted: Thu Nov 22, 2012 12:56 am

Hi,
I have this problem: a SANDISK MICRSD 2GB, after some operations that I don't know, when I try to mount on my linux devces I don't see 2GB but 32MB.
I have to recover some files inside this microsd and I don't understand how can I do.
Some people know something?
Do You know some software to read low level this microSD?

Thanks
G.

Have you tried connecting to a windows machine (write blocked) and confirm via Disk Manager what the partition size is?

Could simply be a 2GB disk with a 32 MB partition.

(you could accomplish this in Linux but I don't know how to drive Linux so good)

That part aside it doesn't really matter what the partition size is you need a data recovery tool, is this part of a course you are doing or for personal interest?

HOW/WHERE EXACTLY you see "32 MB"?

In any case first thing you should do, before anything else, would be to image that device (and the size of the resultung image may be anther good indicator of what is happening).
Since you are on LInux use ddrescie or dd_rescue:
