    Hi all, today is a sad day for me and my 3ds, suddenly all my data is gone :/

    All my games, saves, apps etc are gone...
    3ds was fine, played a lot on it, i'm desperate for help.

    I really appreciate if anyone can help me, so much time on pokemon games and now I lost my saves... In last case i only need to recover the save files.

    Did not mess with the SD card yet because I'm afraid I could do worse... Everytime I boot the console it gives me a warning telling that the it was unable to reed the card.

    Don't know if this info is relevant but I'm really desperate :|

    When the card corrupted I was on playing Twilighmenu++ and it would not boot (always white screen)

    Days before my Pokemon soulsilver reverted the save back because the file was corrupted!

    Specs:
    N3DsXl
    64Gb Card
    Sys 11.10 Luma Cfw (Frogminer)
    PS: Sorry for bad English, if this is not the best place to post this please indicate me

    Thanks, I had seen it before posting, my situation is quite different.. I don't have any icon on the screen (even my themes and so are gone) and I'm unable to open content management in settings, otherwise I will be prompt to format the card.... My objective is to recover the saves and then format if there's no other solution... Anyway thank you for the quick response :) Do you think doing the same process will help me? Thanks in advance

    It will work just the same so long as your saves weren't affected by the corruption. Titles not listed on HOME Menu and Data Management is due to messed up title.db and import.db (damaged database).

    If you have a spare SD card that is equal or bigger than your current one you're using, copy your stuff over and do the setup rebuilding on that one.

    Remember, only work with a card that has passed hardware inspection with H2testw.

    A warning for everyone: Always make bakcups, at least from your savefiles.

    And back on topic, I'm terrible sorry you have lost access to your data.

    In case is damage to the SD partitions or hardware, I would recommend to try EasUS Recovery Wizard, it can check for damaged sectors in the disk and try to recover most of the data if possible. Otherwise, Try what TurdPooCharger told you.

    Sounds like a corrupted card. You may be able to recover data with something like GetDataBack or Recuva. I personally like GetDataBack since it seems to do a far more thorough job resulting in more files recovered, but it's not free. You can probably find it floating around somewhere. ;)
    Where did you buy your card? It could be random corruption but it could also be a fake card.

    if that was your card that did corrupt. You are going to want to test the card with https://3ds.hacks.guide/h2testw-(windows).html . Run the test with the card fully empty. If there is any errors that get reported, that does mean if you continue to use that card you are going to be looking at data corruption again.

    OSMR sells fake SD cards. From their aliexpress listing with the most orders, read the feedbacks with pictures; those who bought capacities bigger than 32 GB reported failed H2testw results.

    No need. I'm good with SD cards. In fact, I have a personal shit list of companies I steer people away from when it comes to buying flash products.

    Anyone in the US market looking for an micro SD card, check my signature.
