Memory card

I accidenttly hit the format button for my 16GB memory card on my storm 2 before my phone could start formatting my memory card I took it out. Is there anyway I can restore my memory card or unformat it so all my data want be deleted?

Re: Memory card

You can't accidentally hit that "button". It takes clicking the format function and confirming it.


Anyway -- you took the card out before it could format? If you have a MicroSD card adaptor for your PC, use your card in the adaptor and copy off the files to your PC from there.

If you don't have that adaptor, get one.


Good luck.

Re: Memory card

Are you sure it didnt start? It normally starts immediately. If it started to format you could have caused issues with your media card.

Re: Memory card

First of all it was an accident I thought I had hit the repair button. But when ever plug my memory card into my phone or computer it doesnt read unless I format and I can't even get my files off because everytime I plug it in it asks me do I want to format
