Dear friends there! I have a Samsung phone SD card that has been used over one year without any problem. But, now, I am suffering from a RAW card file system problem. I didn’t really know what the cause is and also have no any solution. After plunging it to my laptop, the windows only gave me a message saying: “The card is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?” Its file system also is changed into RAW. But, this SD card has contained some messages, photos and videos. They are so important that I really want to rescue them back. Please, help me retrieve my cherished contents! .Many thanks!
Hello! Dear friend! Changing the RAW file system back to FAT32 is not an impossible or complex task! But, you also cannot do it randomly, since you still have to rescue your contained information. So, to take back your card information, firstly check your SD card backup. Are all your cherished stuffs still stayed there safely? If your answer is undoubtedly “Yes”, you can directly format this card for changing its file system. But, if your answer is surely “No”, you’d better wait for a while and use RAW SD card data recovery software to firstly regain your messages, photos and videos. To reduce potential troubles, do not use this SD card temporarily.
