The portable and convenient SD cards are widely used to store digital media and are ideal devices for DSLRs, mobile phones, and other electronic devices. 

With the prominent features and large storage capacity with minimal cost, the SD card users have also pointed out some issues. 

If not handled with care, SD memory cards can get damaged and failed, leading to photo, video or other data loss. To avoid such an abrupt data loss of an SD card, here are the six pro tips on how you can handle an SD card with care. 

1 Avoid removing the card while using it

 You can risk your data while removing the SD card when it is in a reader mode. Every device has its unique formatting and numbering sequence while developing a file, but when you remove the card suddenly, it causes an interruption in the process. 

This mistake could lead to abrupt data loss. At least wait for 30 seconds after taking a picture or video before removing the SD card from the device.

2 Beware of water, heat and dust

Like other storage drives, SD cards can also be adversely affected by extreme heat, moisture or dirt conditions. 

Once the contact points ( highly sensitive) of an SD card get in contact with extreme heat, moisture, or dust, they could be corrupted. Therefore, be cautious while drinking any beverage near the SD card and avoid placing your camera in the hot trunk of the car. 

3 Use card readers

Card readers are user-friendly, easy to transfer files, and cheap to help you operate the SD card with ease. It can also prevent a camera’s battery from running out while downloading any file that makes file structuring and transfers easy. 

4 Watch out while deleting or formatting pictures.

It could be troublesome afterwards when you accidentally delete some files or photos which were precious to you. 

Some of the camera models come with permanently deleting files options which are very destructive, and files can’t be retrieved with data recovery. 
Instead of filtering your photos and videos in the camera, connect the SD card to your PC, where it’s easy to look into files carefully. 

5 Rotating or editing a picture

Many camera users often complain of errors due to rotating a picture. The change in the photo causes file structure to be changed, often leading to overwritten data. To avoid such errors, be patient until the file is completely downloaded; it would be safe to edit and rotate the pictures after. 


SD cards can survive for longer and get less prone to errors and damages with proper handling and care. Make sure to avoid any mistakes mentioned above and utilize the card properly to reduce data loss catastrophes. Though, like other storage devices, SD cards can still go through certain wear and tear, so make sure you visit an SD card data recovery specialist to get appropriate solutions.
