damaged sd card

"I have crucial information stored on my SD card. I often use it with my computer to transfer the data. With less storage space available on the phone, the only option I had was to use an SD card. However, most of the files are missing from the card, and the phone is unable to detect it at times. Is there a possibility to recover the damaged data from the SD card?"

Extracting data from damaged SD card is possible with the help of a retrieval software for a computer. However, you cannot perform a similar action on your phone because of security reasons. For instance, Android prevents the developers from scanning the root directories of the operating system. In such conditions, it becomes difficult for a third party application to recover deleted data from SD card.
