How to: format your SD card back to the original size (WINDOWS)
My SD 32GB card is still working, THANKS!!
Restore DMG to SD Card - MAC OS X
I used the diskpart method! Worked like a charm! You are a god among men!
add "weight bench" to the title so it is easier to find this ;)
also: it would be nice to see the sizes of the structure :)
Thank You! SDFormatter was not compatible with my drive and/or disk, but the diskpart utility did the trick!
Worked Once and never again. The best thing is to place the SD card in a smart phone android, and format it from there. Works always. - MarcelP11
Thanks man. Saved my 16gb card. - YashS83
Even the command prompt didnt work either
it didn't work for my SanDisk 32GB micro SD now showing as 30MB because it says that it is write protected; but it is not! Kindly profer a solution
Thanks. I just saved my 128GB SD card (it was formatted to 500MB)
It does work for formatting cards for the Pi, I have done so many times with this tutorial - AlexG12
Never worked for me... On the other hand, Gparted always did... For all sorts of drives and any format. I guess this is solution is at the very least dependent on the system/user/drive/format since it does not ALWAYS work while Gparted ALWAYS work... - lpanagis.
You just saved my 8GB high speed card! Thank you!

Awesome, had 128GHz Samsung Micro SD, could only see 32 GHz: I used the software (BTW, all its certificates are current and passng).Thanks for the great Lil' Utility
I had a microSD card previous formatted as an N2A card- the original 16 gigs was down to 2 gigs of usable storage. Ran it through the app listed in the first part and restored it to its full size. Worked like a charm. Thanks!
unless the card is physically damaged, yes it works
Is this really works ?
Silly Apple. They make it easy to create a DMG from an SD, but have to go through hoops to go the other direction. Thanks for this how-to.
Thank you, you saved my SD card
I have tried everything...this is my solution :)
Thanks, simple and clear instructions :)
THX you just saved 5 SD cards
Oh man, I dont know how to thank you..!!After searching a lot, I actually ended up with this software but stepped back because it was showing 95Mb(reduced) size only in the start. Didnt know after formatting it will come back to original size. Then I read your post, and yes again. Thanks a lot.
