"I purchased a new smartphone Motorola D501 several months ago. Since I have stored many files on the smartphone, the phone internal memory is not enough. Today, I inserted a 32GB SanDisk Ultra SD card to this smartphone and moved some data from internal memory to the SD card. Everything seems to be fine, but I accidentally formatted SD card in my smartphone after data transferring. I have stored images, videos, music, emails, programs, etc on this SD card, so I cannot afford to lose the data."
You may find many similar cases online. Now, I would like to tell what you should do to successfully restore all lost data after formatting SD card by mistake.
First Step – Stop Using SD Card
The reason why we need to stop using SD card is to protect the SD card from being physically damaged and avoid writing new files to the formatted SD card. It is very important because it is usually impossible to perform SD card recovery if files have been overwritten.
