Can I recover files from the SD card says “The drive is not formatted”?
Yes. No matter SD cards or other memory cards, while you connect the card with the computer, it may say “The drive is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?” Why this happen? Is it broken? How to save the files?
We have to know that most of people may take the card out directly without safely removing, while the card is still reading or writing data. This is the reason that a card says “The drive is not formatted” due to the file system crash. Some people have removed the card directly without safely removing, it seems all is OK and the card is still able to save files. Yes, it may not cause the problem right now, but it has a big possible to damage the card file system.
We suggest that we should always remove a card from the computer with the safely removing process; this will be the correct way to take it off, and make sure all the data is safe.
While the card says “The drive is not formatted”, your card will not be able to save files anymore, and all the files are not readable now. You will need to launch Hdata Recovery to start a full scan for this card to recover all the files.
