How my MicroSD card photos got corrupt and how I restored my lost photos

I was on the verge of clicking as much photos as possible from my new smartphone at an event, and forgot to take back up of them. While transferring photos to the computer, although it was on my mind to eject the external drive in Windows before finally removing it from the computer, but as I was in a rush, I forgot to do that! Although I had done such mistakes before but this time I wasn’t that lucky. 

After that I got to know that my card was showing unreadable. I tried it using in various systems but the card was not recognized by any of them. The result was loss of invaluable photographs of my Smartphone which I afraid I would get back again.

I knew about photo recovery services online and then I started searching on the internet. After experimenting for quite a while, lastly I found efficient, user friendly recovery software which was successful in recovering photos from my corrupt MicroSd card.
