I have a galaxy note 2 and for the past 2 days I've noticed all my pictures from my camera are all gone and my folders too. I'm so mad because I have pictures of my daughter and I want them back. what can I do? Now they did come back yesterday and all my files where back and pictures but still not all of them and now they are all gone again. please help

Re: pictures from camera keep disappering

Welcome to Android Central! Are the photos on Internal Storage or a microSD card? If the latter, the card might be failing. Unmount the card (in Settings>Storage), remove it, and insert it into your computer--does the computer recognize it? If so, back up all of the photos NOW. Then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors. http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...guide-using-chkdsk-fix-corrupted-sd-card.html
