Android SD Card Recovery - How to Recover Deleted Files from SD Card Android

Dear Jihosoft,
I was attempting to transfer nearly 2,500 photos from my Galaxy s6 to my PC. Rather than move everything at once, I would download about 100 photos at a time, save them on my computer, delete them from the phone, and go on to the next batch.

During one of these "deletes," ALL of my photos were somehow deleted from the phone, including the over 2,000 that I hadn't yet been able to transfer to my PC. I have no idea how or why this happened, but it seemed to coincide with the online browser becoming unresponsive - seems to have been some kind of glitch. The SD card has suddenly gone from showing 3.9/7 GB full to showing 116.5 MB full - those photos were pretty much all I had on the phone.

How can I recover these photos from SD card? Some of them are quite important to me. Please help.                                                                                                                                           -Drive Paramedic

This is a latter from one of Jihosoft’s customers. I think losing files from android SD card is a common issue during the process of transferring. I guess Drive is not the only one who encountered this. Don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to examine it ans see if any of the data is recoverable. With right tools, good care, and a little time, it is possible to restore the lost files on your Android SD card. This post will guide you get the way to do android SD card recovery and also some tips to fix a dead SD card.

How to Recover Deleted /Lost Files from SD Card Android

Step 1: Assemble Your Tools and Examine The SD Card’s Condition
- Connect the android to computer to make sure the SD card can be detected by computer. you may need some kind of USB cable that can help mount the card into and connect to computer easily. If the you can access the SD card on PC/Mac, then we can proceed to the next step.
- SD card just dead and cannot be identified? Try alternative SD card reader to see if it can be connected to computer. Otherwise, take out the card out from your Android, then take a look at the drive itself (pin bent)to check if it is damaged in any way. If the SD card is too physically damaged to attempt recovery, you may have to do more drastic measures that I will get to later. If everything looks good and it can be connected to computer systems, we can proceed.

Step 2: Grab Android Recovery Software & Connect the SD Card

Before getting started, keeps your anti-virus and antimalware tools launched, just to avoid the unnecessary digital disaster. Once you have done that, it’s time to download and install Android SD Card Recovery app. Here are two top software we’d like to recommend:

- Jihosoft Android Recovery(Android Recovery Mac). This is a powerful data recovery software which is specially designed for android users to recover lost files like photos, videos, audios, contacts, call logs, SMS, WhatsApp etc. from both internal memory and SD card. Personally speaking, Jihosoft Android Recovery makes data recovery simple and easy.

- File Recovery. The best android recovery alternative tools is File Recovery, it is available for both windows version and Mac version, which helps you recover deleted/formatted/lost files, emails, photos, musics, videos, etc. from Android SD card as well as PC hard drive, external storage medium.


Both tools can only exert themselves to recover files that haven't been overwritten by new content. Therefore, once you lost files, stop using the card and act fast.

Step 3: Pick Up the Phone and Call Professional Firms for Help

For the Android sd card which is physically damaged and has been overwritten, the software can do nothing with it. You can consider professional data recovery services to see what they can do for you. As I known, DriveSavers, OnTrack, and Jiho offer this kind of service. I have had good experience with Jiho for Gopro video recovery, the DriveSavers and OnTrack are well known and loved, both companies do a superb job at pulling data even off of drives, SD cards that have been overwritten, formatted, or even severely physically damaged.

- Be ready to get out your wallet for the deep recovery for your damaged android SD card. The service for data recovery still cannot make 100% garauntee. Is the data worth that much?
- Make sure the data is backed up locally and online regularly, so that you can save lots of time for the damn recovery job and money.

Tips for Fixing a Dead Android SD Card

- Make sure the SD card is connected. Take the card out and put it back in. Then Restart to check if it can be connected.
- Put the card in another phone and try again.
- Scan the SD card for errors. On your computer, right-clicking on the SD card in the file manager, go to Properties > Tools > Error-checking > Check Now. Under Check disk options, select option “Automatically repair errors in the file system” , check box and click Start.
