    So i have had a 128gb U1 micro sd card in there from the begining. It is 100% legit card bought through Amazon Prime...

    As it approached 20gb of space remaining, it started to stall when trying to update large apps like games.

    all of a sudden today, i realised it wasnt downloading my photos or videos on whatsapp - then i realised i could not access the storage anymore - it was corrupt.

    i dont want to lose whats on there so have not tried anything major yet apart from:

    Remo Recovery
    EaseUS Partition manager
    EaseUS file recovery

    the problem is that when Android converts an SD card into internal storage, it means you cannot simply put it into a reader any more and copy things from it - this also means the only way to get to the data is through the phone, or usb through the phone.

    on the phone the storage no longer appears

    can anyone recommend an app or pc software that will repair this corruption so i can re-insert the card and carry on using it


    some software so i can get the data from it before wiping it again

    thanks in advance

    update on this - i literall tried everything.

    and of course the worst bit about it is you cannot use storage on your card until you make a decision - in order to use another sd card you have to click "forget" on the corrupt one.

    anyway i spoke to some data recovery company who i have a business relationship with and they said that they can recover the data for me as long as i have the password for the phone as this holds the key to decrypting it.

    bucks though - so thinking if its worth it or not...data lost would only be from november to now

    Hey SeaGreen, As I read you used several recovery product for recovering corrupt SD card .

    As I suggest to you please try stellar phoenix photo recovery software for recovering lost data for corrupt SD card. I already used this software.

    Hi mate - ok i am running a scan now - it has done 12% and only found 4 photos - so i am not hopeful

    Obviously once you choose to use a card as internal storage, it will encrypt it so you can only use it in that phone.

    i have spoken to data recovery experts and they say that as long as you know the password (which i do) they can recover the data - but they charge 100's of £'s.....i am thinking there must be software out there which will recognise the card is encrypted and ask you for the password so it can decrypt it

    Hi SeaGreenventura, our stellar phoenix photo recovery software will works only external SD card recovery or another external media. our another software Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery for Android is capable to recover lost data from Internal storage.
