ps2menu-k question - Did I lose my files?
ps2menu-k question - Did I lose my files? –
When I was first learning about the exploit, I used PS2Menu-K as my boot elf. When it booted up, I pressed random buttons since I had no clue what to do and there wasn?t any actual text on the screen. (I finally did figure out I had to press R1.) Anyway, when I went back to look at my memory card, I noticed a substantial amount of saved games gone from my memory card. I figured I must have deleted them by accident. I was upset for a while, but I somewhat got over it.
Recently, while looking at the files on the HDD, I noticed there was a folder called ?PS2Menu-K.? It got me thinking that I might have just moved my files to the HDD, and not actually deleted them. Is that what could have happened? If so, can I get these files back on my memory card?
Would I have to use ps2menu-k to get it back or do I have any other options?
Ok, I mounted the partition with flashfxp. I typed in the raw command "SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:PS2MENU-K MC Backup" successfully. I then went into the pfs/0 folder and found 2 files - a 2KB one called index.idx and a 2.54MB one called temp.idx. I successfully copied them to my PC, but I have no clue what I can do with them now. If anyone can give me any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
Those won't do anything for you. Those are just references to the program about what saves are in the subdirectories. It sounds like you deleted your root of PS2MENU-K MC Backup.
Let's just say there were game saves in there. How would I get them out?

Then index stores the game's name, time, what slots are used, and how many saves in the DB. If your saves were there, you'd see a list of subdirectories like 0001, 0002, 0003, etc.
If those subs are there but the Saves device is empty, that probably means the old index file got deleted. If that's the case, let me know and we'll figure out a way to recover.
