Decrypt SD card after factory reset

I unexpectedly had to do a factory reset on my S7 while the SD card was encrypted, as result the SD was not obviously readable afterward.

I saved part of the encrypted content of the SD card (basically the pictures) before formatting it and starting using it again, however I'm not able to recover this content.
I tried with the procedure I found on internet:
- saving the encrypted data
- format the SD card
- encrypt of it
- copy of the saved content back to the SD
- decrypt

However, at the decrypt state the phone don't move from an 'Analyzing SD card' phase.

Any idea? I'm afraid I should have saved all the content of the SD card...

Thank you
