    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... [​IMG]

    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.
