Re: Help....storage card now erased????

Hi, sorry to hear about that. Did you flash via sd card or activesync? I do believe that some ROMS cause this to happen and unfortunately, its irreversible. The most I can tell you to do is think of all the cabs and stuff you had before and maybe whatever was last backed up. also check in Ivan's Rom section if it states anything about this.

EDIT: It's recoverable. check with codybear. Thanks !

Re: Help....storage card now erased????

Don't save anything to it,
Find yourself a good data recovery program.
If you'd like a link to the one I use, send me a pm and I'll find it for you.
I prolly won't notice a reply as I'm working on my new touchpro I just got.
Otherone's keyboard went out. :/

Then just run the program and it should do the rest for you.
but it can take a while for it to fully recover all the data and then copy it to your harddrive/computer.
I think mine took 4 hours last time, but I didn't loose a single thing. woot!

but my answer about the getting the stuff back is a negative. sorry.
you should be able to recover it bro.
There's tons of data recovery programs.

Recover My Files
Code:
http://www.recovermyfiles.com/
is a good one too. I just lost over 500gb of data on one of my hard drives and that helped me recover most of it.

Re: Help....storage card now erased????

I learned this lesson the hard way. Unfortuantley data recovery didn't work for me. Always remove your card when you do any sort of ROM flash or hard reset!!
