Recovering Data From SDCard With Corrupt Main And Backup Boot Sector

Yesterday, I shared a post on how to recover data and file-structure from a corrupt SDCard. The solution works perfectly for cases where the card/disk has Backup "file-system Boot sector" intact, but what if both get corrupted? Well, in that case we are left with no other option than to bypass the "file-system registry record" and "Scan" the SDcard to find and recover maximum data possible or somehow manage to fix the corrupt "boot Sector" record of the file-system.

After reading yesterday's post, one of our reader contacted me for a fix to this exact problem where both Main and Backup boot sector records are corrupted as shown below. Here is a guide on how to recover maximum data possible in such situation.

How To Fix And Recover Full Data From Corrupt SD Card Asking For Format

Plugging in the SD card into your PC to find out it is not getting detected could be the worst nightmare for anyone having thousands of pictures, music and other important data onto it. I have shared many How-to's and utilities to help users recover data but sadly all of them failed or were unable to recover all data on the SD-card which came to me for recovery. After doing a lot of research on why my computer is asking me to "Format" the SD-card instead of reading it's content, I was pretty sure the culprit was a bad file-system boot sector.

While 99.9% of the data recovery applications, both free and paid relied upon the same method to "Scan" and find data from the disk bypassing the file-system "registry" of the files, I was looking for something which will allow me to play with the damaged boot sector of the file-system to recover the underlying "file record registry". Luckily, what I found was not only open-source and free but supported advanced features which nothing else offered, the utility supported NTFS, FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, ext2, ext3, ext4, btrfs, BeFS, CramFS, HFS, JFS, Linux Raid, Linux Swap, LVM, LVM2, NSS, ReiserFS, UFS and XFS filesystem and came with cross-platform binaries which can run under DOS, Windows (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, Windows 7 (x86 & x64), Windows 10, Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, SunOS and MacOS X.

Cisdem DuplicateFinder 3 Review

At any given time, your Mac is the home of several duplicate files. This is something natural and obvious. Most of these files are automatically created while some of them are created by the users unintentionally. It doesn’t matter how create these files, the question is how to get rid of them?

Getting rid of the duplicate files and folders is not easy especially if the files have different names. Imagine having a single image saved in different folders with different names. Finding these types of files is practically not possible unless you open each and every file on your device.

But, you cannot open every single file and even if you do, you won’t be able to read the content of each file.

It is complicated.

Cisdem has the perfect solution for you. The Cisdem DuplicateFinder 3 for Mac is the tool that has been developed to solve this very issue of every Mac user.

Ellp : Automate your routine device tasks for free...

EllpWe’re all busy these days… and with the advent of the Internet, we’re even busier! As a result, electronic devices have become a huge part of our lives - a can’t-live-without commodity! This comes as no surprise, as they help us do practically everything. Whether it’s keeping up-to-date with friends, family, and events, tuning-in to music sites, browsing through our favorite sites, scheduling, or storing things we need them!

The problem with most devices is that they come out with one-size-fits-all standardized settings. This means that ‘you’ the user have less control over your device, making it harder to get things done the way you want to.

The new way of doing things is through ‘Personalized Task Automation’. This is where Ellp comes in. There are many automation programs out there, but this particular tool is unique! Ellp automates everyday device tasks around your specific needs.

How to Make Lovable eCards for Free with Cherami Cards

Ever since the Internet evolved and became available to everyone living in at least moderately developed countries, the world became incredibly connected. Not only can we instantly receive news and information about people far away, but with the help of computers and the Internet we can also acquire resources and tools that can help us do things we never knew we could. For example, every mediocre computer user can make simple videos, record songs, create presentations, learn new languages through games, etc.

The problem with such connectedness and availability of so many different opportunities is in the fact that life became very fast and chaotic. The tempo of life sped up and people are trying to do too many things in a day that still only has 24 hours. And the consequence of such a hectic tempo of life is the difficulty of maintaining close relationships with people, because that requires time - something that we seem to have less and less.

The good news is that there are solutions to this problem as well. Skype is one obvious way that can bring people together via Internet even if they are physically far away. But there are tools that are not as direct as Skype. Tools that still have something of that old fashioned romance embedded in their code. And one such tool is Cherami Cards, a recently launched online cards maker. Its creators recognized the need of a modern man to slow down and reconnect with his loved ones, so they created a web app that helps people stay afloat in a fast-paced society such as ours.
