Secure digital cards are generally used in digital cameras and camcorders. SD cards are developed by SD Card Association (SDA) and are divided into three categories, i.e., Standard capacity (SDSC), high capacity (SDHC), and extended capacity (SDXC). The capacity of the SD cards varies from different categories. Standard capacity SD cards (SDSC) vary from 2 GB to 4 GB, high capacity SD cards (SDHC) vary from 4 GB to 32 GB, and extended capacity SD cards (SDXC) varies from 32 GB to 2 TB. All the activities of SD cards are handled by micro-controller. Actually, the data is stored on the stack of NAND which represents the memory space in SD cards. SD cards cards do not contain moving parts hence they are not at risk to physical failures. But, they are not able to avoid data loss that occurs due to logical failures.

When you format a SD card, it rebuilds the new file system by erasing the existing contents. So, you may not be able to access the data because, the allocation information of that data is deleted.
  • Unintentional deletion of files from memory cards: While previewing photos from a digital camera and camcorder, if you press Delete All option then it will erase complete data present on digital camera, which may result in file loss.
  • Improper Handling: Improper usage of SD card like pulling it out forcefully while data transfer is going on can corrupt the files stored in it and hence make them inaccessible.
