Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
There may be no way to... but the SD card is probably the best target for recovery efforts.
'Corrupted' - how? with what symptoms?
Turn your phone Off and leave it Off, ASAP. The less it is on, the less what is possibly remnant in memory will be overwritten or corrupted.
Good to hear that - it is what I would have recommended, more or less.
As for the phone... flash and root may overwrite some stuff that's still in memory. It might be surer to hook it up to a computer, and run recovery-from-memory utility software on it, designed specifically for that task. Less likelihood of it all being overwritten.
I admit I cannot think of one. Try (if you think it were worth the money) a Data Recovery company, but make sure if you do, that you
1. request an estimate of the charge/price, before you commit to the service at all, and
2. make sure that they do this sort of recovery, out of volatile memory in the HTC phone. I would be skeptical of anything less than assurance of that on the website *before* even contacting them and asking them.
I have Opted Out, wishing you luck, and opening the case up in case another Expert has more to suggest.
Hi there and welcome
When you connect the phone to the computer, is it showing as a drive?
ok, you mentioned the SD card has the issue, but you also referred to the internal memory.
Can you tell me please which one has the corrupted data on it your trying to recover?
ok, the best tool to use is wondershare which you can get here
It is a paid program but if the data is recoverable, this program will get it.
Have you used this program yet?
ok, then you will need to Root the phone.
Note though, rooting it will void the warranty, and in cases especially if you do not follow the instructions correctly, can brick the phone making it useless, so you need to carefully follow the instructions which I put here if you wish to do the Root
Then run the scan from Wondershare
There is a chance, just depends if the area of memory that the data is on has not been overwritten, flashing it does not mean this is the case.
