Does FAT support file system recovery?

CHKDSK (Check Disk) is a system utility in Windows operating system that scans your hard drive for file system errors. Running the CHKDSK utility helps you check for and fix logical hard drive errors.

Usually, CHKDSK is launched through the command line in Windows. Using unique commands such as chkdsk/f, you can scan the FAT file system to find data errors on your device and fix them. If the CHKDSK command did not solve the problem, then the only way to access the data is to use a data recovery software.

Detailed instructions on how to do this can be found on this page - How to recover FAT.
