Solved. [Q] The death of me (wiped ext sdcard and file recovery doesn't work)
I have a Sprint Galaxy s3. I was on a touchwiz based ROM. I flashed over to a CM. 10.2 ROM. I knew that my internal storage would be wiped so i put all my goods on the external sd card. When I booted up into the CM rom,I went to my file manager. I went to the "Storage" folder and saw a folder called Emulated, as well as the sdcard0 and sdcard1 folders. I noticed that the emulated folder had the "0" folder inside of it. I deleted it, not knowing the tragedy that would happen. Then I noticed the real ExtSdcard was empty. I died when this happened. Why did this happen? I tried downloading a file recovery, Recuva to be exact, but it couldn't recover anything as well as Recover files, Stellar Phoenix and Dumpster, .Are there better file recoveries that anyone can recommend? Am I SOL ? If anything had to be recovered first, it would be my music. I haven't put anything on the ext Sdcard since it would possibly overwrite the data of my precious files. Is there anything else I can do to get them back?
Edit- I found another recovery tool that worked at least for my music. I'm so glad it worked.
