How do you know that the act of pulling it out corrupted it? I would suggest that was a bit of a coincidence.
All the best

Maybe so, but I have seen SD cards corrupted because someone didn’t use the Safely Remove Hardware option. And their system wasn’t customized.

I'm not arguing with anything else but this. The Eject/Safely Remove Hardware function is an anachronism in all but the very rarest of circumstances. All the way back to Windows 7 Microsoft changed the default behavior for USB connected devices to stop caching writes, because people were doing "the natural thing" and pulling out jump drives and external USB drives once it appeared all activity had ceased. The problem was if the last activity had been write, the final block of data might not be written unless you ejected.
