After receiving an android upgrade the pics on my SD card disappeared along with several other albums from my gallery. WHY? And how do I restore?
 
Did you try restarting (turning off and back on) the phone? Sometimes that is all you need to do. Also, check the settings in your gallery to make sure it is set to look for them on the card. The update could have changed the settings.

Should they turn out to be actually gone, then you can try the following...

Note: If you have the backup and sync option turned on, then the following may be of help. https://support.google.com/photos/answer/6128867?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en


While there is no guaranty that you can get them back. Deleted does mean deleted. There are a few apps/programs out there that 'may' be able to help you recover the data.

A few of the programs you could try would be... DiskDigger, MobiSaver, Android-Recovery and Tenorshare. They are all data recovery apps/programs. There are many others out there, so check around and see which you would rather try. There is also one called RECUVA, that I have heard is free, which you could try.

One important note though, most of these programs are not free. They may say they are "free" or have "Free Trials" and "Free Downloads". Yet to actually recover your data, and get your files back, you may be have to purchase the program/app. Just so you know.

NOTE: For future reference, I really would suggest backing up your data to a computer or cloud. Often. Better to spend the time doing that, rather than to be out all that stuff if the phone dies, things get deleted/erased or it gets stolen.

I was told my SD card was corrupted. This occurred after Samsung did an update. My photos and files were backed up so I didn't lose them but my gallery was severely damaged by the update.
