>>1223995Would this be an appropriate workflow for my my fritzed out SD card from my phone?It just spontaneous stopped working the other day. Windows basically locks up if I point it's file explorer at it. Google suggested I run chkdisk, which seemed to see some data on the card, but didn't do shit
>>1224035Probably. Making a disk image on a reliable, fast disk makes it easy to manipulate and improves chances of data recovery.
