    Hello all,

    My Dstwo recently crashed recently after years of use.

    I used moonshell the other day, and my ds turned off with the ''power off timer'' build within moonshell.
    When I tried to start it up again, moonshell did not open and it crashed while booting.
    I didn't have my computer at that time so I tried opening moonshell in a different way, by booting another program and go back to moonshell inside that program (some plugins of moonshell allow to go straight back to moonshell when pressing ''start'' for example).
    This did work and I was able to listen music, however when I turned my ds off and on again and tried to open moonshell.nds again, my supercard froze and it wouldn't boot anymore. (Black screen on top, white screen on bottom)
    When I put my micro sd in the computer it says that it is empty except for 1 file ''/_dstwo/.DSG''. 0 bytes big.

    What happened? Did my supercard format the microsd on its own? Are my files lost or can I get them back?
    Please help.

    I used Bagplug for my dstwo.

    Even with DeepScan?
    I would expect it to find nothing without DeepScan enabled.

    If you are comfortable with RemoteControl via TeamViewer I can try my own scanner.
    I'd rather not send it out as it is not complete.

    PhotoRec might be able to recover your files.

    Uses the same algorithm as Piriform's software.
    No harm in trying though.
    Let us know if it works~
