    I also tried soft reset to recover the lost data or app by , in 8.1 soft reset is done by pressing the volume down button and the lock screen button simultaneously and hold it down more than 10sec your phone will automatically restart and you performed a soft reset,,,,, so I did it but in vain no results came out and still facing the problem coz I cannot use those apps for ever,,,,,,,,,,. They aren't getting installed in my device after downloading/updating them,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, what should I do,,

    Firstly never moves apps to SD card if you are planning to do a hard reset thinking that its a medium of backing up your stuff. After doing a hard re-set the apps of the SD card will not be useable. Its due to certain encryption logic applied by the OS. After a hard re-set you have to anyhow re-install the apps.
