My SD card has hidden my files and they can't be found

in dire need of help!

I just connected my micro SD card to my mac through an adapter, and inside the folder I saw all the files. The micro SD is from a DJI drone and I believe has some restrictions on it

I selected all the files and hit "new folder" and suddenly all the files aren't viewable

I tried again to create a new folder to check, and as soon as the folder is created it disappears too

the storage on the card tells me that the files aren't deleted but I can no longer access them

I tried using terminal to show hidden files but there's still nothing visible in the folder

This is how a lot of folk learn to copy out what they want.

NEVER write to a drive, card, stick that has no backups.

That said, go try RECUVA on that next. Tutorials and more are on the web so try the deep scan.

That's typical when there are card issues.

The lessons are rarely taught or listened to.

1. "We only lose what we don't backup."
2. Never write or try to repair media we want to recover files from. (Nod to Recuva.)
3. At some point you call the media dead or overwritten. There are some that keep trying. Maybe best for a data recovery house (drivesavers.)
