    I keep fixing apps but since yesterday the card continually loses data making most files 32kb

    any ideas?

    give it nice format with this, and then see how it performs.

    i havent heard of any homebrew having this sort of effect on data, so i'd presume its the card itself, or a function of how you may be mounting it on a computer, if you are transferring files that way.

    The data's already a goner. Don't waste time trying to recover the now-32KB files...

    If the formatting doesn't fix it, replace the card. Like any flash memory, they're prone to wearing out or otherwise failing.

    my friend had the same problem with a fujifilm card (imagine that) it would randomly corrupt n had to be reformatted and data replaced from scratch every so often. He trashed it and got a sandisk. Problem solved

    That's like asking if you think any given motor car will break down again! You have not even said the make and model of the card!

    Possibly therein lies your problem - it could be one of those fake 32Gb cards which are programmed to show 32Gb capacity. Did you ever check the true capacity using something like h2testw 1.4 or check flash? Oh and the 32kb size for files and folders - common with fakes.

    Yeah obviously fake cards use good brand names! Many reknown card manufacturers such as Sony, Transcend etc have their products faked.
