    Angry Pictures corrupted Soulution Help

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 its about a year old. Recently when I take pictures with it, they last for about 10minutes. Auto Backup seems to recover most of them. Then an icon appears (black square with an icon in the middle) some times I see a, "Data lost message". I have a Scandisk ultra 64gb card. This is where I store most of my pictures. I am thinking some how this card has become corrupted.
    My question is how do I fix this? Will reformatting the card fix this? I really do not want to do a factory reset. I do not want to lose my text message history as well. How can I back up my messaging history?

    I think it may be related to the sd card - you can try a reformat, but I think it may reoccur. Here's another thread with a similar issue, and it seems that a reformat did the trick: Best Sd Card for Samsung Galaxy S4? Mine keep getting corrupted.

    Let us know how it goes.

    A reformat will probably work, but here is the catch: your card already has issues. Its only a meter of time before they arise again. And next time, you may not be able to recover anything.
    Your PC should be able to check for errors.

    Once you get everything sorted, I would highly suggest to back everything up on your PC.
