How to recover files from Raw File System

I thought, there was no other way…

I inserted the card reader… this had the SD card where I saved my kid’s photos from her recently concluded program in school.

But then, it cannot be recognized. The error?

I thought, a simple chkdsk can solve my problem, but a more complicated error occurred:

emilie-bombita-chkdsk-not-available-for-raw-drive

Exactly, what did it mean?

Based in Google, RAW drive has not been formatted to any file system. Hence, it can’t be recognized and needs to be formatted. I’ve checked a lot of articles, which of the solutions in the internet would be easier and faster to perform. However, I was wrong to expect that I could resolve it, immediately.

It turned out I need to have a software to do the work. But, the question was, which one could work?

It was a trial and error. It took me several times to install then uninstall, trying each of the applications that may help. (And now my startup include this weird looking chinese applications which I can’t remove. Did I just install a virus application?…huhu. Be cautious of what you got from the net).

After each installation, I immediately run the test, which took time to get completed, by the way. Then, just when I thought I found a solution, it turned out, it was just a bait. ‘Cause, what I didn’t know was these software applications didn’t come free. I can only recover my files if I have the activation code. (Ooops..you know what to do next, get it, whatever way you can).

Once you have it, open the applications and just follow the instructions to proceed. You can have a good night sleep, afterwards.

By the way, I used the EaseUS data recovery and I’m happy to bring the news that I’ve recovered my files.

Is your file that important to you? May I remind you that even deleted files can be recovered. Make your move, now!

We can recover,
Emilie

 Movie Date Vol. 14: BFG

Aug 13, 2016

Photo from Web

BFG is based in the book of Roald Dahl’s novel of the same title. I might not found the movie delivered at it best, but still, its story has much lessons to share.

A story of endearing friendship, that no matter of your age, of your physical apperance, or to where you came from, true friendship does not need to weigh these things. True friendship can exist even with your differences.

A story about dreams and the possibility for it to become true. Dreams do come true even if you think it’s impossible. It may sound like a line from a fairy tale but it’s true. We just need to BELIEVE and ACT on it.

Happy believing!

Something Happened Vol. 4: EU Referendum

image

Image captured from BBC.com

When:
June 23, 2016 UK Time
June 24, 2016 PH Time
Where: United Kingdom
What: EU Referendum. Should the UK remain a member of the EU or leave the EU?
Current Philippine President: Pres. Benigno Aquino III

I personally didn’t know the details. But, what made me logged this day? It’s because I need to remind myself to constantly know the issues around the world, to at least READ.
I’d just risked my last kept fund to buy 2 of non-PSEi stocks during its high, just hours after the market had opened and when everything was green. But, just, seconds after I bought them, just after I switched tabs on my window, all of a sudden, not a single stocks in my watchlist was on green. Their prices had all plummeted, including my newly acquired stocks. A quick 11% decrease in my portfolio. Oh, great! When will I ever get back from them? I hope the market stabilize, sooner. I’m no big investor, a small loss could mean a heart attack for me. Lol!
This should serve me a lesson. I must READ!!!!!!
Don’t worry, I believe in my choices, I just thought that if only I could have bought them at more discounted rates, I could be gaining soon. But, now what, will I wait for years for them to soar? Oh, probably!
Well, that’s the consequence I’ll have to pay. Serve me more patience, please.

What Kung Fu Panda Teaches Me

image

Watching the Kung Fu Panda 3 was like attending a personal development seminar. It was like listening to Bo Sanchez, who happened to be one of the best inspirational speakers in the country, in a more animating way. You knew how Po moves, right? That’s why I love this movie. It didn’t only entertain but it also reminded me some of the best lessons to keep in life.
This movie date, however, was different. We didn’t get a chance to see it in wide screen but rather have it from a friend. Nevertheless, it was still a family bonding experience where we all sat down and wait for the story to roll.
I started writing my notes. I only got a few but I knew it will strike deep. Especially, for a person like me, who was just learning to get out of my comfort zone. Am I, really? Po, help me go throuh this. Lol!
Film rolling.
When it got to 09:26 part, Shifu said, “If you only do what you can do, you can never be more than you are now.”
Why someone wanted to be greedy if Oogwei clearly pressed that, “The more you take, the less you have.”
Are we really not aware of ourselves that we often caught asking “Who am I?”
Sometimes, we need someone to wake us up, to slap us and say directly at our face “You don’t even know who you are.”
Being ourselves is our greatest power.  Shifu knew exactly how to deliver the line. “I’m not trying to turn you into me, I’m trying to turn you into you.
I can’t wait when my mentor can finally say “You finally became the panda you are always meant to be.” Of course, that was just a metaphorical statement.
A little pat will help.
Yeah, “I knew you could.”
Soon, I will be!

Emilie
