This is mostly a Gamecube thing but two weeks ago I modded my Wii to play GameCube games, but I made the mistake of playing a NTSC-J game on a physical memory card with NTSC-U game data. In an instant, all my old game data, going as far back as 2004 was gone. I managed to save a good handful of games through GCMM backups and the GCM memcard recover program i found on here, but there are still things left missing like melee pictures, wind waker data, my brother's twilight princess data, etc. it's worth noting there are two memory cards I used one official one where the original data was stored, and another one I got recently with a lot more storage. I made the mistake of moving all that data to my new memory card instead of copying (blindly assuming I would never need to use it anymore) and the new memory card with bigger storage got formatted. this is the part where it starts to sound bad; I went ahead and formatted the new memory card (i got emotional in the moment and thought it was all gone for good before I searched up if it can be recovered) and recovered the backed up GCMM data into the new memory card. the old one however was untouched for the most part. doing as much research as I could, I learned that memory card data saves stored data twice, one version of it is displayed and the other is tucked away deeper within the system. Ultimately what I'm asking is; is it possible to recover the rest of my old memory card data on either card?
