I've installed a micro SD card on my phone, as an extension of the internal storage, but it's not detected anymore on my phone...

With some tools on the computer I found out that the micro SD card is divided into 2 partitions, android meta and android expand. I guess it's partitions for android extension storage.

How can I make it work again? Is there something to fix this? I need to recover files on it, and it is super boring to use weird software...

    If you have formatted the SD-card as internal storage the data is encrypted, so recovery software is not an option.

    If your device is not rooted the only way is to read the sd-card inside your phone. If that doesn't work I don't see a way to access the data anymore.

    For rooting your phone you need to unlock the bootloader which will erase all user data including the encryption keys. If you do that you can be 100% sure the SD-card data is gone.
