I've been using a 256gb SD card I got cheap on the internet, and it's been working fine for weeks. Now all of a sudden when I save an app to it, the app kinda disappears. I downloaded SD card insight and it says"SD card invalid" but it still says it's got 254gbs of storage left. Can I make it work anyway? (I can't root my phone)

This is why one should not sacrifice quality for price. Stick to these major brands when it comes to SD cards that you will use for storing precious data: Lexar, SanDisk, Samsung, Kingston. Don't bother with cheap cards and those cards from China, no matter what the price is.
