It is a common mistake that we all been through – “delete photos from the android gallery”. Maybe we have done it by mistake. Soon after we realize the issue, but unfortunately, we are not able to recover the photos because we don’t know how to do it. This has happened to all of us because of a mistake, or a software error. But, don’t be disappointed. There are some ways with which you will be able to restore all the deleted images from your android gallery. Here, we will talk about some proven techniques to recover deleted from android.
Were your photos on a memory card?
Most of the new generation smartphones have internal space more than 8GB to 56GB. So, the use of memory cards makes no sense. But, many of us use external memory chips to store images, videos, and other files. If you have deleted the images from the memory chip, it is a good thing. Because there is some specialized data recovery software for Mac, Windows, or Linux through which you will be able to recover your deleted photos.
If the photos were in the internal memory then the advantage is simple. You can use applications such as Dig Deep for windows, to recover files, and photos for Windows – more powerful and faster. You do not need to have root access to make a deep photo recovery. All you need to do is to install the software, connect your smartphone with a computer using a USB cable, run the software, follow the guidelines, and recover them.
Use a Google Play Store app
If you want to recover your deleted photos then you can download any relevant apps. You don’t need to root your device. Dig Deep is among the various apps which is designed to work perfectly on both non-rooted and rooted device. It is one of the easiest ways to get your files back. As soon as you open the app, you will notice that it starts scanning to find the deleted photos. In the end, it displays them in folders. Tap on one of them and select the ones you want to retrieve. Another good app from the Google Play Store is Disk Digger photo recovery which also works on rooted and non-rooted devices. When you open it, tap on the “Start basic photo scan” button.
Use recovery software on Windows / Mac / Linux
There are several recovery software available on the web such as Ease US Mobi-Saver. With it, you can only view the data in the free version, but to recover it you will need to buy it. In addition, your smartphone must be rooted.
Connect the smartphone (Android) to your PC with a USB cable. Enable developer mode on your device, and enable USB debugging. Open “setting” > tap on “about phone” > tap “version-number” for 7 consecutive times. After that click on “configure” > press “programmer”. Then activate the “USB debugging” function. Open the application. Your device name will be displayed when successfully connected. Click on the “Start” button. The software will start to scan your smartphone and show you what data can be recovered. When the analysis is complete, check all the photos and other files you want to recover and click on the “Recover” button.
Use Google Photos
Google Photos will not help in the case of recovering deleted photos if you have never used it before. So it is recommended to keep a backup of your photos for future use. If you have “Backup & sync” enabled in Google Photos, the task of restoring them is easily accomplished. If you use Google Photos as your primary gallery app, just go to “Trash”, and select the photos you want to restore.
