Hi,

I took a photo this morning on my S3 went to look at it and the phone said my microsd was damaged.
Looks like I've lost all my photos :-(
I took the card out put it back in and it seems fine now but none of my photos are there.
Is there a way to recover them?

Thanks in advance.

you could try a recovery app like

stuff does break like this


backup is always good.  Apps like OneDrive can back your photos up into the cloud when you take them

What nathan said.

If you're hoping to recover data, take the card out of the phone now and don't use it until you have recovered the files or exhausted your options.

When attempting to recover files, NEVER recover the to the card.

Any writing to the card may overwrite the data you want to recover.
