    You don't. You consider the SD card as something that has a limited life (which it does), so you keep backups of anything important on it. When it goes you try to format it but the chances are that even if it comes back, it's going to fail somewhere else soon. And if it does fail twice, your best bet is to crush it (they can be read by people with the right equipment, so if there's anything on it you don't want getting around, you use a hammer and a steel block and reduce it to tiny pieces) and buy a new one.

    There's an old comp8uter industry saying, "any file you don't have backed up is a file you don't need."
