I got most of the new content back. The old stuff was backed up anyway.
I agree with you.
It's a computer. A microSD is a removable flash drive. BACK IT UP!!!!
I was able to get quite a bit off, several thousand.
What software are you using?

i've been encountering corruption problems with my sd cards. it seems like my phone can't write to the card without causing corruption. here's an example.
1. Could be the sector size you're using. Try the default. The phone doesn't necessarily work with uncommon large sector sizes.
2. What fixed another guys problem was formatting FAT32 from TWRP. Formatting FAT32 or ExFAT from the PC resulted in the phone crashing with the 128 GB Micro SD card inserted.
3. My 128 GB card works fine for me in ExFAT, but not all the same phone always works the same.
4. The other guy was using the SkyDragon kernel too. Try using the stock kernel.

[VK810.4G] [altev] official LG G Pad 8.3 Lollipop 35A_08 5.0.2 DEBLOAT SCRIPTS and copies of all the files they remove
[VK810.4G] [altev] OTAs, .IMGs and KDZs, oh my
thanks for the suggestions. i'll try some of them out.
1. i was already using the 128kB default allocation unit size. i'll try out smaller sizes.
2. can fat32 handle such a large card? i thought fat32 could only handle storage sizes up to 4GB.
4. i'll see if i can find the stock jasmine kernel somewhere. if not, i'll try dirty flashing jasmine.
another problem i encountered was doing a nandroid to the sd card caused corruption, so the nandroid itself would get corrupted. this is in recovery, so my fear is that this some bad low level problem that's os independent, which really sucks.
Ah, didn't realize that 128KB was the default cluster size for 128 GB cards formatted in ExFAT. FAT32 handles FILES up to 4 GB in size. Maximum volume size 4 TB. Reference Look at the table below in the link, don't be confused by the Knowledge Base article title.
Ha! You skipped 3! Testing to see if I'm paying attention, yesss......? (hear it in your head in Yoda's voice).
Dirty flashing will probably be your best bet. It definitely won't harm anything to flash the same Jasmine version over top of itself. If you installed Xposed, you'd have to do that after again, too.
formatting the card as FAT32 helped. windows hasn't reported any corruption after multiple writes to the card. i can do titanium and nandroid backups to the sd card and they don't get corrupted. it's nice to have 128GB of usable space again.
yessss, thank you for all the help i am. (continuing the yoda impersonation.
