Ever wished you had not deleted a photo or a video on your device? Or accidently deleted an important photo and wished to get it back? Well, if you are not aware already, here is a good news. There are many ways in which you can recover your deleted photo or video, let it either be by accident or if you have changed your mind after deleting. There are many apps with file recovery features that you can use for this purpose.
There is an app in the Google Play store named “DiskDigger photo recovery” which has powerful photo recovery features that you can use without rooting your device. It can recover deleted photos from both the internal storage as well as from the memory card. If your device is not rooted, the app can still search for deleted photos in your cached memory space and thumbnails. If your phone is rooted, the app can search all of your device’s memory for deleted photos as well as videos.
You have the option to upload the recovered files directly to the Google Drive, Dropbox, or even save the files to a local folder on your device. After you scan your device using the app, it will show you a list of recoverable files that you can select and save. There is also a “Clean up” option which you can use to delete the files permanently. There is also a feature called “Wipe free Space” that you can use to deep format any unused space on your phone so that any deleted files cannot be recoverable by any means. You can use the Pro version of this app if you would like to recover file types other than photos or videos.
For PC users, there is a similar app named “Recoverit”. This app provides similar functionality and offers recovery of various file types including audio, video, pdf, email files and so on. It can cover all data loss scenarios such as accidental deletion, emptying of recycle bin, disk corruption, system crash and boot problems. It will recover files from SSDs as well as HDDs. It is free to use for up to 100MB files and more data can be recovered by using the paid version. It works on all major versions of Windows including 11, 10, 8 and 7.
Recovering files was a nightmare some years back, now with powerful recovery tools, you can get back almost any files that you have deleted. No file is permanently deleted unless you deep format your storage drive. The system just tags the deleted file space as free storage and it gets over-written when a new file is created.
