How to Undelete Photos on Android

Accidentally deleting photos from your Android device can be a frustrating experience. Thankfully, there are methods to recover these deleted photos and restore them back to your device.

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of undeleting photos on Android.

Method 1: Using Google Photos Trash

If you have the Google Photos app installed on your Android device, chances are your deleted photos might be in the trash folder. Follow these steps to check and restore deleted photos from the trash:

  1. Open the Google Photos app.
  2. Tap on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the top-left corner of the screen.
  3. Select “Trash” from the menu options.
  4. Browse through the list of deleted photos.
  5. Select the photos you want to restore.
  6. Tap on the “Restore” button to bring back the selected photos.

Method 2: Using a File Recovery App

If you cannot find your deleted photos in Google Photos trash or if you do not have Google Photos installed, you can use a third-party file recovery app. Follow these steps to recover deleted photos using a file recovery app:

  1. Download and install a reliable file recovery app from the Play Store.
  2. Launch the file recovery app on your Android device.
  3. Grant necessary permissions for the app to access your device storage.
  4. Initiate a scan for deleted files or photos.
  5. Browse through the list of recovered files and select the photos you want to restore.
  6. Tap on the “Restore” or “Recover” button to bring back the selected photos.

Method 3: Using a Computer

If your Android device is connected to a computer and you have enabled USB debugging, you can use specialized software on your computer to recover deleted photos. Follow these steps:

  1. Connect your Android device to the computer using a USB cable.
  2. Ensure that USB debugging is enabled on your Android device (you can find this option in the Developer Options).
  3. Download and install recovery software on your computer. There are several options available such as Dr.Fone, iMobie PhoneRescue, etc.
  4. Launch the recovery software on your computer and follow the instructions to detect your connected Android device.
  5. Select the option to scan for deleted files or photos.
  6. Browse through the list of recovered files and select the photos you want to restore.
  7. Choose a location on your computer or directly on your Android device to save the restored photos.

In conclusion, accidental deletion of photos from an Android device does not necessarily mean they are permanently lost. By following these methods, you can effectively undelete photos and retrieve them back onto your Android device.

Remember to regularly backup your photos to prevent permanent data loss and to always double-check before deleting any files or photos.
