7-Zip Ate My Files


I had some files on a SD card and tried to ZIP a 56MB file using 7-Zip by right-clicking. I think by not specifying an output directory, it tried to create the ZIP file on the SD card. The process sat at 0% for about 90 seconds and I decided to click on cancel. Not only did it not compress the file, it decided to corrupt my SD card so now I can't read any file. It was a 2GB Sandisk and I had quite a few files. Hopefully I have a backup on a CD-R/DVD-R somewhere.
