Okay, copy everything from the SD card on to your computer, format the card, and then copy everything back. It should now be fixed.

it fixed it! thank you so much!!
You may want to remember this trick, as you might need to do this again in future. Also, your Nintendo Switch might be faster now because this also defragments the SD card, so you might want to do it occasionally. Don't do it too often, or it could reduce the life of the SD card. You probably should keep the files you copied on to your computer as a backup too, just in case.
