I am switching from my GS 2 to the Note 2, in preparation I plugged my GS 2 into my windows 7 laptop to back up my SD card, as I have done before with this and other phones. I had a back up this SD card already and was writing over it. Once done I had lost the last 3 months, some 600+ pictures, and am left with pictures before that time although some are corrupt and wont open. I also had a bunch of files that were just nonsense characters…. Upset and tired I reformatted the card (which I know I should not have done). I don’t know how this happened, all I can think of is this was around the time I upgraded to ICS…. Not sure how that plays into it, but the time frames are right. I cant wrap my mind around how this happened…. It should be like dragging and dropping files from a flash drive, I cant see how it would delete the files off of the SD card if I am just trying to copy them onto my pc.
Tonight I am going to try and recover any files I can off the SD card (not high hopes), delete the corrupt files off my pc, and create new folders with what is left to put on a new SD card for the Note 2.
My questions are:
Has this happened to anyone else?
What could have caused this? So I don’t do it again
If I would have taken the SD card out and put it in a reader would this still have happened?
Thanks for any help available,
