Something really really bad happened to me. I was formatting my SD Card with the Terminal when suddenly something happened and it formatted my ext. Hard drive.

After that, I found the software "easeus data recovery" but every file I recover is corrupted, but the file size is the same as the original one.

Here some data from me:

  • System (OS): macOS High Sierra V. 10.13.4
  • Hard drive before: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
  • Hard drive after: Fat
  • Terminal command: sudo diskutil eraseDisk FAT32 MYSD MBRFormat /dev/disk2

What I already tried:

  • Saving on an other Hard drive (Journaled and ExFat)

Does someone have a solution for that?

    FAT[x] is a Windows format, no? – bjbk May 21 '18 at 22:32
  • Yes it is, but the software (easeus) can read it.. and export the files to mac – user3701108 May 21 '18 at 22:45

    I highly suggest not using that pos easeus. It has made small nightmares into bigger ones. Use either data rescue or disk drill. – norcal johnny May 22 '18 at 0:43

    You may want to reach out to the makers of easeus. – bjbk May 22 '18 at 11:12
