Hello,

I think I made a pretty big mistake... I never use the "safely remove hardware" button on Windows when I remove my MicroSD card reader, but it look like this fired back to me: all my things on my card suddently disapeared!!

I don't know if it's because of this or because I fulled my MicroSD card too much... I tried playing a game, but there wasn't even space to create a save game, so I tried to delete some stuff on the card... but when I inserted it on the PC, there was nothing!! This is weird, because I was playing with it a minute before. I told myself it might just be a problem with my PC, so I put the MicroSD back on my M3... NOTHING!! It can't even find the menu files or anything! Tried it on my friend's PC: same result: just a 0k file on the card, nothing else...

I'm really frustrated to have lost all this, because I had a lot of games wich I played a lot on it...



Is there anything I can do to save those datas? Don't want to replay Zelda, Advance War, etc... all over again!



Many thanks!

Go find a torrent for GetDataBack FAT. Works like a charm. Although on mine I had files with names like *&#Q)(*#^@ and such, should still work.

Hum... I TOUGHT it worked... The files seems to have been recovered, but they doesn't work right... Tried copying the recovered roms+saves on the card, but they don't work. Tried a new, clean rom + the recovered save: the save seems empty.

I think I'm doomed...

If your entire card gets corrupted, and the recovery programs don't work, there's little you can do. Best thing to do is to keep regular backups for just this occasion.

    My spidey senses must have been tingling because I guess I logged on at the perfect time today to nuke a bunch of spammers lol
  • Faust03 @ Faust03:
    they seem to be getting worse
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Yeah it seems to have been a pretty rough few weeks/months for spam. Sadly I don't have access to or insight into why/how it's getting past the spam prevention measures we have in place :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Disgruntled banned members probably writing script batches
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Eh I don't think it's that, the content of the spam isn't all that different than what we've been seeing for the past like... decade. I'd imagine if it was a disgruntled banned member then the content would be different, not crypto recovery and illuminati shaman scams lmfao
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Never know
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

    135357153715613756 posts by a single member in a short period of time? that seems like a task that would be better handled by a bot than a human

    A new staff group isn't really needed
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Global Moderators don't have that kind of config access

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.

    It's just becoming more and more of an issue and I don't see it stopping until preventative measures are taken.
