When a card stops working you can lose a lot. Here we've focussed on recovering files including photos, videos and documents. You can reinstall lost apps, and if they come from a legal source music files can be replaced free of charge. But in any case the principles are the same for just about all files. if your trusty SD card has stopped working. Don't format the disk if you want to retain any of the photos on it. You can follow the tips in our separate article on how to format a write-protected SD card after you've tried to recover any files that are on your card.

For Android user, you may stored massive pictures on memory card ,SD card . No matter what may be cause of lost data .Data lost come from deleting, restoring factory settings, flashing ROM, rooting, etc. If have done backup on computer or other devices.

I agree with all the given answers but:
Please note that you SHOULD NOT overwrite the card with any new information because it may or may not write onto the space previously occupied by old your data and that will make it completely irrecoverable no matter what you do.
