Last incident was yesterday, where after an upgrade, my card required reformatting... and of course I had many files that only existed on my card...
That's interesting. Others have had no problems, so I suppose it could just be coincidence that two of us suddenly have problems now, but I think I will warn my users to be more cautious if we get this phone. I've never even looked at Options/memory, but I think I'll advise using the "Remove media card" option there if I don't want to pull the battery.
I often change cards over for users, so I know who'll be doing the file recovery if I corrupt one.
I wonder if there's some background process in OS6 occasionally writing to the card, increasing the chance of corruption as it's removed.
As for the backups someone mentioned, yes, good idea, but who downloads photos every day? I didn't lose much myself, especially considering that most of the shots were old ones from the Bold and of horrendous quality.
