Situation: Yesterday when I wanted to insert my SD card into my Mac, the system reminds that I need to format the card before I can continue to use it. I click the "Agree" and the terrible thing happens - All my files that originally saved on the card, such as photos, videos, songs, files and more, all of them were gone!!! Why? Can anybody tell me how to get them back? They are important to me.
