Hey

So I need to do back to factory settings on my tab and I remember last time I done this I lost everything on my SD card due to having to format it with the tab again does anyone know how I can stop this from happening? 

 

Thanks

Sounds like you're using your sd card as adoptable storage. You must backup your sd card somewhere else before you do a factory reset. Otherwise you risk losing everything. The tablet may not be able to read it after the reset. At which case you'll need to reformat it again. Then use your backup to restore. 

 

Don't remove the card to back it up. Connect to a pc to do it. Or put it in the cloud somewhere.

Read the warning message and touch Format SD Card again. (Please note: if this option is disabled touch Unmount SD card first.). Touch Delete All to complete the memory card formatting.

I am wondering with getting back all the file from SD card once it was deleted at a time. The flirtymania has been providing some great ways for the betterment of the living experience. Online solution could be helpful in this regards!
