This week I gave my new phone to my IT dept to get synched with the Exchange server to get my work email. I totally forgot to remove my (2 year old) SD card that had everything on it: Pics, texts, docs etc... and now it's "damaged"?!
When I got the phone back from IT, I noticed it kept asking me for an encryption password. The keypad lock password and my Exchange password both didn't work. Since I was running out of tries I just hit cancel and I decided to follow up with IT the next day. I also noticed that many apps were gone, but I couldn't re-install them.
By the next morning, the notification bar kept saying the SD card was damaged. I tired to read the card in another phone, and it wouldn't mount. I tried to use a card reader in my laptop, and it couldn't read it. Seems like the only option is to reformat...
I put a NEW SD card in the Rezound (with Active Exchange now working), and the phone still wanted me to reformat the new card, and also encrypt it. Now, I have to use the keypad lock password, and then also enter the SD encryption password - every time!! This was never required on my original Incredible.
- Are there any alternatives to get the files back from the old SD card? I'm not sure if it's damaged because of
1) age of the card (2 years)
2) unknown encryption password accidentally by my coworker in IT, or
3) incomplete process with the Exchange set up
- Why do I have to encrypt an SD card at all??
Life goes on, but it kind of sucks to lose all my files..... I have not reformatted the old card, so any suggestions are welcomed!!!
