Recovering files from an xSD card

I had phptos on a xSD card which somehow got damaged. I ran a windows fix on it (from disk tools) and it said it recovered  items and placed them in the Found folder.  I cannot find this folder anywhere!  Also, when I check the volume info it says that there is 99MB used but I cannot see any data on the drive.  Is it possible the folder is hidden?  Or the files are still there?

There was other info contained in the error message but I click off it too soon, is there anywhere I can review this error message?

THe tool joensw mentioned works fine.

As you said space used is about 99MB, do you think that is the size you should expect or more than that. Because if there are lets say 100 pics with around 10MP, I seriously dount that will fit in that much space.

To look at the hidden folders you can follow:
To see hidden files:

1. On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
 
2. Click the View tab.
 
3. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.

If you cant see the files, I seriously doubt that you can recover the data from SD card. If it was HDD case then there is chance of recovering data by reading sector by sector... there is no such option in SD card. SD card is FlipFlop memory.
