Yesterday I wanted to copy the content of my SD card (SanDisk Extreme microSDXC 128GB) to my computer to make a backup. I used a USB cabel and connected my Samsung S9+ to the PC. Then using Windows I copied the DCIM folder and pasted it on my hard drive. The process went smoothly and after an hour I had 35Gb worth of videos and pictures stored on my PC. I didn’t open any file neither on the phone nor on the PC after the copying was finished.
After disconnecting the phone most of the pictures and all the videos became corrupted on both ends, the phone’s SD Card and the PC. SD card is still working just fine.
I tried removing the SD card and using it with a card reader but still the same, everything works except the above mentioned files. I tried many methods to repair the damaged files without success.
Now I have 35Gb of precious memories sitting there with no way to view them!!
Is there anything I can do? Is there a way to save these files?
