    A few of my photo albums are gone and when I look at the albums in my storage they're all empty and they're named weirdly there's a weird kinda y instead of the first letter and the rest is written in caps lock. It kinda looks like this: "yEGELN" I had several thousand pictures in these albums and it would be really sad if they were all gone. Idk what's up with my SD card. All of these albums were on my SD card. Not a single picture from my internal storage is missing. I would be happy to know what's up with my phone so thanks in advance for your help

    It could indicate a failing (or failed) SD card. Or a counterfeit card. Run an app called SD Insight to determine if the card is legit. Cards DO fail after so many read/write cycles... that's why we always recommend regular backups to a PC or other drive. You could always TRY a file recovery program, but if the card is corrupt or failing, your results may be less than spectacular. Good luck.
