My phone went unintentionally into factory defaults reset. I was able to remove SD-card with very recent photos (not yet backed-up).

After reset was completed, the phone no longer recognizes the card and requires reformat before new use.

I have researched adoptable storage to learn it is based on 128 bit encryption of data-partition, with key stored on the phone. So reset of phone implies loss of key implies a mess. Research is confirmed by inspection of SD-card in Linux. There is a large partition with unreadable filesystem

My phone is MotoG 3d-gen running Android 6.01.

Does anybody have tip how to recover?
