    I have recently had a problem with the Sandisk 64gb memory card i had in my Samsung Galaxy S4. My phone switched off because of my battery running out. Open switching it back on memory card was unmounted.

    I inserted the memory card into my PC and it was showing corrupt.

    I read through this forum and other forums. Some suggested using Recuva by piriform to recover contents. I used this first and only recovered few photos.

    I then tried chkdsk which was recommended on here. I done this and got access to my memory card. This is the results from the command prompt:

    This is what i got:

    C:\Users\hp>chkdsk j: /f
    The type of the file system is FAT32.
    Volume Serial Number is 08B5-1A14
    The \ entry contains a nonvalid link.
    Windows is verifying files and folders...
    \FOUND.000 first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be truncated.
    File and folder verification is complete.
    Convert lost chains to files (Y/N)? y
    128 KB in 4 recovered files.
    Windows has made corrections to the file system.
    32,758,944 KB total disk space.
    2,848 KB in 78 folders.
    2,325,152 KB in 2,948 files.
    30,430,912 KB are available.

    32,768 bytes in each allocation unit.
    1,023,717 total allocation units on disk.
    950,966 allocation units available on disk.

    My question is i had photos on there which i think are all there. I am in two minds as i think i had 2 folders full of pictures. Folder 0 and folder 1.
    I have recovered Folder 1. If there was a 'Folder 0' and it had pictures in there and is lost, would i have had some sort of traces left for example. Folder 1 with nothing in it???

    Replys would be appreciated and clear my mind.
