How do you recover data from formatted SD memory card with help of command prompt?
Actually, you should ask can I recover a formatted SD memory card using command line.
Answer is no! You cannot run CMD to retrieve files after formatting or reformatting an SD memory card. What you can do with command prompt is to run it to format an SD card or fix some errors like RAW to FAT32 converting, fix bad sectors, etc. However, command line is not available for formatted SD memory card data recovery.
If you run CMD to format an SD card on Windows PC or format SD memory card with any other method, you can free download SD card recovery software for format recovery. iCare Data Recovery Pro supports for SD card recovery after formatting with diskpart from command line or using other methods to performing formatting.
You can go to "Settings" > "Storage" to format an SD card in Android, but you cannot run command line directly on a smartphone to format SD card because CMD is a command in Windows OS. You can connect an SD card to Windows computer and run CMD to format it.
