Think my 32GB MicroSD died on me

And I didn’t make a backup of it since quite some time. Lost quite some photos ūüôĀ Been using the card since like 4 years now.

lsblk shows the disk as 30.6mB

root@nayarpersonal-Satellite-L50-A:~# lsblk
mmcblk0        179:0    0  30.6M  0 disk

Same result with fdisk

root@nayarpersonal-Satellite-L50-A:~# fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 30.6 MiB, 32096256 bytes, 62688 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I tried dd’ing the disk onto an image but the image size turned out to be 31mB which doesn’t help at all into recovery.


Searching on the internet, didn’t find someone who managed to fix it except for a guy who put it in oven. Weird.

Advice: always backup your datas!!!
