SD Family Photo Storage
« on: February 24, 2024, 11:05:10 PM »
SD Family Photo Storage is not a long term solution.

long term solutions suggestions are welcome.

I have an SD card sitting around for years, I put it into my computer and many pictures and videos are corrupted, most thumbnails display as intended but many pictures when opened are either discolored or halfways solid red or green,
most videos plays but between frames it can be sluggish
how can I repair all these pictures and videos?

if I can get a way-back machine to retrieve them that would be great.

I did exiftool -a -b -W %d%f_%t%-c.%s -preview:all YourFileOrDirectory
which gives me the thumbnail as a picture,

I am running now CHKDSK /r on SD card, lets see what happens

I am glad I backed everything up before running chkdsk because apparently all my thumbnails are gone, and nothing was corrected, so at least I have the thumbnails in the backup copy

in other news my cell cracked in half,
I was able to download all saved pictures on cell using ADB
Code: [Select]
adb pull /sdcard/DCIM/Camera C:\Users\YourUsername\Picturesmy advice when you get a new Cell that doesn't have instant Sync, connect to PC and start ADB click Always Allow.
