hello, a virus deleted all the files of my sd card. Can this still be recovered? when I checked the properties, the used space was only 500mb..where in fact the total used was 1.5gb..almost 1gb was deleted. Can i still recover that 1 gb? or that 500mb? but I still can't open that 500mb remaining. Any help please. really really want to recover it coz those are all very important..

Just relax; it is quite easy to recover files deleted because of virus attack by using best file recovery tool only if the memory space is not overwritten by any new file. Some days back, I had accidentally deleted some important files and was worried and looking out for a way to recover deleted files. Then I got to know about this tool which helped me to restores my deleted files back. So without wasting your much time you can go ahead and follow the below links to use the software.

Do not frustrate! You need a recovery program to help you as every body writes above.
If you know little about the recovery stuff, you could try a free SD card recovery tool that has completely helped my friend recover his data from a Samsung smartphone. You could try it from
But, you also should note something:
You should not save new file on this SD card in case that the new data would rewrite your deleted files.
You should select a reliable recovery program to recover you data because the false recovery tool will make it more difficult to retrieve your data completely.
You should select a trustworthy anti-virus program to protect your data.
You should back up your data regularly.

you need to kill the virus first, you can use some virus scan tool, here's a free one from AVG

Norton and McAfee are also quite popular virus scan software.

For the data recovery, you may follow this guide: recover deleted files from SD card

Make sure that you kill virus before you connect the memory card to computer, because if virus is still on the memory card and you connect the memory card to computer, virus infect your computer.

make sure its free of virus before pursuing any recovery effort. Else you expose your computer to further exposure to whatever virus you are dealing with.
