Avoid Storing Any New Data
When you store new data after losing data on an SD card, it will overwrite the lost data. This will make the lost data irrecoverable.
Do Not Format the SD Card
Formatting your SD card will destroy important information that a recovery tool will need when recovering your data. This will make your data hard to get back. The data may become irrecoverable.
Avoid Using Apps in the Play Store
When you use Apps in the Play Store, you will be reducing the chances of SD card recovery for Android. This is because using the apps will create new data on the SD card. This will overwrite the lost data.
