I just updated my software on my S8 and all of a sudden the SD card that's been in my phone, worry free since I got this thing is now not showing up anywhere in my files and in the storage feature in settings... Is now showing corrupted. That's years of files, memories and photos gone that I can't get back. I even tried the SD card in a different device and same thing happened. May not mean much to Samsung but Def meant alot to me. Worse part is as soon as I started doing research on this... There were tons of people reporting the same thing happened to them.
Well my SD card worked fine before the update and was corrupt after, so I would think the update caused the problem as it has in the past.
you used a card from another device or purchased new for current phone....s8-8+.don't come with a card.
some sd cards are cheap for a reason!!
No, it's not too late necessarily!!! If the OP did not format the card or write to the card they think is corrupted, it's likely the data can be recovered. The OP would have to place the card in a microSD reader, or a SD Card Carrier, depending on computer, and run a utility program that can locate the files. Some programs like Wondershare Data Recovery can even restore the file structure (but I'm not sure I would trust it afterwards). This utility isn't free, but it may be worth it to the OP. There might be "free" recovery programs out there. You'd have to do some looking via Google.
I have an LG G4 that randomly rebooted or updated - I may have inadvertently ok'ed the update after months of not now. Anyway after it's update it wiped a 32 GB SD card which had not been backed up. Yes I'm stupid knowing this is my 4th replacement of the phone. I immediately removed the card. I tried several apps and It wiped the card just overwrote the old structure with the same names. I know the feature to wipe the card was not selected so I can't figure out why it would do this. I even tried it in my old rooted Droid X and I'm at a loss. I've never not been able to recover data. Why would a phone update without permission and wipe an SD card. Anybody manage to have success let me know.what you used.
