    Hi,

    Anyone knows how to get work testdisk and photorec on android? I get always: './testdisk_static: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected'

    Any ideas or another software to recover files?

    Thanks.

    Okay, this is not an android app, but you can use it to read your sd card formatted in your Android phone and recover files off a bad card.

    I'm using testdisk on a vista computer reading from an sdxc card that was formatted in my Rezound.

    I had pulled my card and hooked it up to my computer to delete a PHzip file and then my phone wouldn't read it when I put it back in. Then when I put it in my computer that wouldn't read it either. Fortunately testdisk is working so I can retrieve all my back ups.

    After you select the drive and it comes up with the partition table list, select [None].
    Then select [Analyse]

    Can't recall exactly what happened next, I think it mentioned errors with the partition etc... but it listed the correct size of the card if it were empty so I proceeded and then bam, it listed all my files. Copying them all off now.
