SM3000: External card failure. How to retrieve data in flash memory?
I'm accessing the recorder via FTP and see several .dat files, but DataManager Pro doesn't recognize such data for graphing.
Is there a way to transform this files to .B00 files or read the information they contain?
Can I find an ABB software to do such thing?
enabled in your FTP client.
Also you can read readout the CF card, via CF Card to USB Adapter.
If the copy fails you have some broken sectors try this :
Copy the whole CF Card as Image file and run chkdsk.
Don't do this on your CF Card, this will create more damaged sectors.
Maybe google can help you here to recover your data (search for testdisk)
In general, this what I tell people if they think flash is reliable.
All flash memory is *broken* by *design*.
If you don't change the media in a timely manner and have a backup plan you are *lost*
And things get worse with current flash drive based on TLC (Tripple Level Cells)
and QLC (Quad Level Cells) including the marketing name.
