Arghhhh. After all the trouble of installing everything, entering credentials, 2FA, arranging home screens and moving some apps to the microSD... The phone froze, rebooted and now the microSD contents are gone and all those apps wiped.

Damn you Android.

My mates SD card had corruption on it so we copied off all the good files and formatted it and it worked 100% better afterwards.

I moved to ios for that reason, buggy weirdo android behaviour.

Only to find ios 8 is also buggy!




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

In which case it would be because of the OS. The card was formatted once inserted, then erased when I did the factory reset, not leaving the handset at any time.

I lost about 50GB of google play downloaded music instantly off a memory card in my moto g for my explainable reason

As much as fandroids love their external storage I have to say my HTC One is the only android i have ever owned that has not had this type of issue, the minor benefit for fixed storage i guess

freitasm: They came back after a second reboot.

File system check I guess.



actually now i recall once or twice, "certain files" would go missing when i open a certain app. that is, titanium backup.

confused the heck out of me, then i thought hmm let's reboot, maybe it can't see them for some reason. then it saw it! when it happened the second time round, reboot!

After my last SD failure I only store music and photos on my SD card. I have a backup on my laptop (and photos auto save to drive).
It's too risky to move apps these days. If you have that many apps, get a phone with more storage :)
Some of my apps store data on the SD, but I never look. I have a 16Gb phone and still have 6G free.


I also gave up on titanium backup. I used to swear by it but it caused more dramas than it was worth during a restore.
Now I let google restore all my apps and it works fine.

Agree with this, no apps on SD - only data. I haven't had an issue with Titanium Backup myself, however like you I let Uncle Google restore all the apps then I restore the data only from TB.

Yes, this would be good if some apps had the option of storing data on SD cards - Sygic for instance only seem to store maps in the main storage - what a waste.

I have not really trusted SD cards since I had one die on me a few years ago while travelling over seas, I was just lucky that I had taken a backup a few days earlier so did not loose much.

Now days I just go with phones that have heaps of internal storage.

Moved everything back to internal storage except maps, photos and music.

Not worried about photos on card as everything goes up to One Drive anyway.

But, yes, very annoying.

I think there are two issues here

Sd cards failing
OS (App) bugs

You guys are making me scared. Friends asked me to video his wedding despite my protests... My camera uses sd cards ...

Camera probably does not write to the SD card as much as a phone will though, its a problem with flash memory after it has been written to lots it starts to die.
