When (not if) you lose everything on your phone or tablet, you’ll be thankful you backed up the important things
We just got another heart-breaking email from a reader who has lost all their pictures and video because the SD card in their Android device went belly-up. We get at least a few of these every week, and it’s horrible having to tell folks that there is a very good chance they’ll need to use complicated forensic data retrieval tools to have any hope of getting those memories back if they can even get the media to be recognized in a computer again. Not having a good answer is the worst part of our jobs.
Now, this is not the SD card vs. no SD card debate. The same thing can happen with the internal storage on your phone, and while corruption isn’t as common, accidentally erasing everything is more frequent — especially when folks are tinkering with things and wiping and flashing “stuff”. Don’t go thinking this doesn’t apply to you, because it does.
