    Games, Saves, Bubbles, everything on my vita is gone. I tried rebuilding the database twice and force re-installed henkaku. My theme is still there and two bubbles (The cartridge i have in my vita and another cartridge game I own, but none of my other cartridges). After getting henkaku reinstalled I opened up molecular shell and nothing is left on the memory card. This all happened after I accidentally bumped the cartridge and caused it to eject during the "please wait" screen. Is there any way of getting things back? Could I use vitashell to put the vita into USB and use normal data recovery stuff or is everything truly gone?

    What happens when you remove the memory card and put it back in, then reboot?

    Same thing. Like I said, I rebuilt the database twice.

    NO COFFEI!
    Same thing happened to me after installing Adrenaline the first time. Nobody knew what happened and it didn't seem like there was a way to get my stuff back.

    Rebuilding the database isn't the same as removing/replacing the memory card. It sounds like the memory card isn't being detected, that's what happens when the memory card is "unexpectedly removed" (which happens occasionally on my Vita).

    Make sure the contacts on the memory card are clean, give them a quick wipe and try again.

    Does Molecular/Vitashell show the correct memory card size in the info?
