How to Recover Deleted Photos on Android
Losing your photos from your Smartphone can be the most embarrassing/sad thing that can happen to anyone. There’s no built-in mechanism to do recover a photo you’ve deleted, but fortunately, there are phone apps and PC software programs to help you recover these images. Just keep in mind that you need to act fast.
We are going to put more focus on for recovering photos on Android devices. An app called DiskDigger can help you retrieve deleted photos on your Android device.
Before we start sharing on how you can retrieve your photos you have to note that do not create new files or data can erase the deleted image that’s likely still on your phone until you’ve recovered your image.
Step 1: Go to the Google Play Store and Download the app> Click here.
Step 2: Open the app. If it asks you to allow access to photos, media, and files, tap Allow.
Step 3: Within the DiskDigger, tap Start basic photo scan.
Step 4: When you see the deleted photo appear, Tap the box in the upper-left corner to select it. Then tap recover at the top of the screen.
Step 5: DiskDigger will ask how you would like to recover the files. Tap save the files to an app on your device.
Step 6: The app will present options for where to save the photo. Choose the one that will work best for you and follow instructions from there. If you already use Google Drive or Dropbox, that can be a good one to choose because it’s designed for, among other things, photo storage.
If you have an Android tablet the process to retrieve deleted photos from is virtually the same as doing so on an Android phone. Just be sure to read all the instruction screens within DiskDigger to catch minor differences.
Out of options for getting that image back from your phone or tablet? Think about places where copies of it could be.
Did you back it up using Google Photos, Dropbox or another backup service? All of these services have ways of restoring your documents. For example, the process in Google Photos is the same as the one for Facebook.
Did you post it on social media? You can download it from there. For example, on Facebook open the photo, right-click on it, and select save image as…. Then go through the normal process to save the file to your computer.
Did you email or text it to a friend? Ask them to send it back!
Always remember to back up all your phones files in the cloud (a model of computer data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools) to avoid disappointments/lost.
