So I had all photos, videos, music and everything on my SD card. Yesterday my S9 then asked me to format the SD card as it was unable to read it. I thought nothing further of it - I thought it would just fix a connectivity issue or something.
So I formatted the card - and this deletes everything on it - was not totally aware of this 😞
So now I have lost all photos/videos and other data I have generated these past 2-3 months. So, the summer is gone (visually anyway). I am heartbroken!!!
I have tried to recover the files from the SD card via different softwares (Disk Drill and Recuva), but they find nothing on there. Is there another way? Does the phone overwrite the SD card at the same time as it formats, not just deleting files but also making sure nothing can be recovered?
@Sofiele: Sorry to hear that you have experienced this issue. Formatting does erase any existing content on the SD card, and sadly it won't be possible to recover the data following this process. If you enable Wi-Fi and head to Apps > Google (folder) > Photos, you may find an archive of your images and videos here if you have your Google account set up to do so.
