    *somewhat urgent*

    I have a corrupted SD card from my old phone (samsung s7). I lost probably 98% of the photos of my dog that just died. Does anyone know how or know someone (Chicago area) that knows how to retrieve them? I tried a phone repair center and the SD card kept disconnecting from their reader. I'm willing to try literally anything to get these back.

    Hi, you didn't have them back up anywhere else , like Samsung cloud ,or Google photos?

    Welcome to Android Central! See this guide: [Guide] Recovering Deleted Files - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    In the future, never rely on an SD card as the sole storage for important data -- SD cards are inherently unreliable. Always keep data backed up on a regular basis to your computer hard drive, or take advantage of Google Photos auto backup: https://support.google.com/photos/an...DAndroid&hl=en

    @riypatel, we already have a guide for this, so you could just have posted the link - Using chkdsk to fix a corrupted SD card. We also have guides for recovering files, as B. Diddy said.]

    Backup, backup, backup. Essential when using SD cards.
