How can I recover files from a damaged microSD card in Windows?

Christopher Formosa August 19, 2011

I have an 8GB microSD card, which has been damaged while transferring files onto my PC. It is not detected anymore. I tried some apps, but they also didn’t detect my card to recover files.

Can anyone please know of another solution since I have many important info on my card.
