  1. Open Google Photos: Launch the Google Photos app on your Android device.
  2. Tap on the Menu: Look for the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the screen and tap on it to open the menu.

  4. Select Pictures: Browse through the deleted pictures and select the ones you want to recover.
  5. Tap Restore: After selecting the desired pictures, tap on “Restore” to recover them back to your device’s gallery.

Method 2: Using a Data Recovery App

If you haven’t backed up your pictures or if they are not available in Google Photos’ Trash folder, don’t worry! You can use a reliable data recovery app to retrieve your deleted pictures. One such app is DiskDigger which is available for free on the Play Store.

  1. Install DiskDigger: Open Play Store, search for DiskDigger, and install it on your Android device.

Tips to Improve Picture Recovery Success:

  • Act Quickly: The sooner you attempt picture recovery, the higher the chances of success. Avoid using your device extensively after realizing that pictures are deleted.
  • Avoid Overwriting Data: Do not save new files or take new photos until you have recovered your deleted pictures. Overwriting data decreases the likelihood of successful recovery.
  • Backup Regularly: To avoid future data loss, make sure to regularly backup your Android device using cloud services or external storage devices.

With these methods and tips in mind, you can now confidently recover your deleted pictures on Android. Remember that prevention is always better than cure, so be proactive in backing up and securing your precious memories!
