How to recover files from a corrupted SD card previously used on Windows Phone

A lot of windows phone handsets these days come with built in micro SD card slot which is great. They allow you to expand the storage capacity of the phone but we all know that they have limited life span and one day, files on them often get corrupted. So how do you recover those files?

While there are plenty of sd card recovery software out there, the one that I recommend is EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard which is free to use. It is very fast and comes with an easy to use user interface. You can use the software to recover files from almost any storage media including flash drives, SD cards, hard disk drives and even the recently launched SSDs.

How to recover files from a corrupted SD card previously used on Windows Phone

Talking about SD cards, you can recover formatted sd card with it which means if you have accidently formatted your memory card, it is still very much possible to recover most of the lost files. To get started, simply download the software from the website and install it using easy-to-follow on screen instructions.

Start the software and you will asked the type of file types you wish to recover. There are options to recover only photos, music or videos but since we wanted to recover the entire corrupted SD card, I selected “all file types”.

Then click on the next button to start the search process. Do not worry as it would not take very long for the EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard to find the deleted or lost files. There is a deep search option too in case you are not able to find your desired file.

Then simply select the files you wish to recover and press the Recover button. We recommend using this app to all windows phone users who have corrupted the SD card and now want to recover as many files as possible.
