    Yesterday I was on my phone, viewing my gallery. Out of nowhere my gallery app crashed, I suspected it was just some random crash so I opened up my gallery again. All of my photos and videos that were on my SD card are now all corrupted.. If I want to view a photo i'm greeted with a grey and white image of the gallery logo with an exclamation point. Same for videos.. I've tried running an app called "media Re.Scan." but it did nothing. I looked up any possible explanation for this and I saw a post that mentioned ".nomedia" files. Unfortunately, I can't view any files on my SD card. When I open up my files and click SD card, it says "No files". However, when I go into storage, I see that my SD card still has 43.38 GB worth of information on it.. I downloaded "ES File Explorer" and checked "Show hidden files" and i'm able to view the contents of the SD card just fine there. I searched "nomedia" and sure enough, there were the .nomedia files. I was able to delete some but that did nothing. Plus, I don't want to just delete all of my photos, I want to recover all of my photos. If i put my SD card into my computer it can read it just fine. When I attempted to delete the .nomedia files I was given an error code which told me to run "chkdsk". I did just that and cmd checked it and informed me that some of my files were corrupted, but when trying to apply a fix, I was given yet ANOTHER error. Do you know any way I can possibly recover the corrupted files? I don't want to go out and buy another SD card unless there is no possible fix for this. Please help.
