We always advice that you backup your device before flashing a new firmware or performing factory reset because mostly, data is lost after the process is complete. Some virus infection on your Android device requires that you format your storage to clean up the infection, in such case, all photos on your Android device will be lost (if you don’t have them backed up on any cloud storage or other storage drive).

Also, when your device accidentally falls to the ground and it happens that your screen got broken, the touch screen might cease to function. In this case you will no longer be able to access those important photos on your device.

What is dr.fone – Recover?

Why should I use dr.fone – Recover?

With dr.fone – Recover, you can recover photos lost as a result of:

  • Accidentally deleted photos
  • Factory/data reset of your Android device without prior backup
  • Virus infection
  • Broken device screen (causing you to not have access to photos on your device)
  • Firmware re-flash (software update)
  • Corrupt or formatted SD card

What happens to my personal data after recovery?

After recovering deleted photos on your device, the existing data on your phone is not deleted or even tampered with. It remains as is. Dr.fone – Recover only helps you to get access to your lost photos (and other important data) but does not modify any data.

What to do once you no longer have access to your photos:

To ensure that you can actually recover your deleted photos quick and easy with dr.fone – Recover, you need do the following once your photos go missing:

Stop using your phone

Don’t use the phone until you have recovered the lost photos. When you delete a photo only its address in the memory changes, but the moment more data queues up in the memory, that space/address is occupied by a new file and you might permanently lose the data you want to recover.

Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, and try not to use file transfer/sharing apps

As already mentioned, transferring or sharing files when you have not yet performed the relevant steps to recover your deleted photos might cause the recovery process to fail because the address/space occupied by the deleted photo(s) might be overwritten.
