Recovering Data from a Dead Micro SD Card
I think I know what the answer is but just so that I know I've tried all avenues, I thought I'd ask you lot.
Anybody have any ideas how to retrieve the data from a dead micro SD card? When I say dead, I mean completely dead; neither Windows nor Linux even recognise it's plugged in, so any attempt at data recovery software has failed before it's even started.
I've tried freezing it as I've had mixed success with HDD's doing that in the past, but no luck.
Usually I'd just bin the thing but it's from the missus' phone and contains pictures and videos of the little one of which there are no backups (the row about that one has already been and gone!) :(
I know there are data recovery companies but I'm dubious as there are no guarantees and so (in my cynical opinion) no incentive for them to even attempt to recover your data, but as that's looking like my only option now I'd be willing to try one on of them based on fellow EduGeek's recommendations.
