Default Files on my Micro SD Card

Hi everyone, I'm having a very large issue. My Micro SD Card, that I have in my Galaxy Note 2, has apparently been corrupted. Every file now shoes at the front. Does anyone know of a way to fix this? I've tried multiple times to use recovery tools, but to no avail. Thanks!

Did you try using Check Disk on a Windows PC? Mind you, you should probably plug the microSD card straight into the PC, rather than doing it through the phone. Probably won't fix the issue if its that corrupted, but its worth a shot.

Thumbs up

I have experienced the same with my 32gb Sandisk Micro SD card 10 class using in the Galaxy Tab 2. The SD card is genuine so I know that's not the issue.
However, I have found this to work for me.

1) Format the card on your PC or Mac, to NTFS file system.
2) Download Paragon NTFS / HFS apk app for your Android device
3) Without ANY NTFS app for the android, the android WILL NOT recognise the inserted SD card format as the android only recognises FAT file system
4) Put the Micro SD card into the device and restart the device (if the card icon shows in the notification bar, bottom right, ignore)
5) Goto and open on Android Paragon NTFS / HFS tool apk and check disk / format using the android app
6) Restart device again, with SD card inserted, leave card inserted and connect Android device to PC, the External Disk should now be available formatted to NTFS

The card should AUTO MOUNT via the Paragon NTFS app when the device is turned on

I've tried every method possible to have the SD card in the FAT 32, but it just doesn't last, folder names change, files dissapear.

Thanks for reading
