Did you ever wake up one day to discover your favourite pictures are nowhere to be found on your phone?
Don’t feel wrong about your erased images if the device is a brand of iPhone product.
Wondering why I said so?
Keep on reading; in the following few paragraphs, you will find out. There are ready-made solutions to help you fix the problem, which will be explained in the next few sections.
First Approach: Restoring erased pictures through backup. Did I hear you say how?
Let’s keep going
The easiest way to retrieve all data for Android and iOS devices is to take the bull by the horn by having a duplicate copyright from the on-set. It is not difficult at all. Restoring through this method with iCloud and iTunes is stress-free. Another advantage is that this approach is handy when you misplace, lose your device to theft, or it’s faulty.
Depending on the model of your device, features like” recently deleted folder” can be used to restore deleted images. This can be found in iOS 8, which contains records of things erased not longer than a month. So if your erased picture falls within this period, you will be happy to find it there. Then you can move it back to its real folder or gallery. Note: After 30 days, items in the “recently deleted folder” will be permanently removed.
The downside to this feature is that only deleted images can be retrieved from it. This means that malware and other virulent software removed from your device will be absent in this folder, an added advantage. Furthermore, images erased during device upgrades or iCloud synchronization will also not be in this feature.
On the contrary, if there are images you wish to delete forever, you must delete them from this folder.
Now back to the question: How to retrieve my pictures?
Simply navigate to “photos” click and go to “Recently deleted”. Click to highlight the images you wish to restore and press the recover icon. That’s all
Second Approach: If you do not have a backup then this is for you!
For those without a duplicate copy, retrieving erased images with free software is not easy. Other applicable software may come with a cost that can be expensive for you. Those that are free of charge work on the lost folder. Remember to switch your phone to aeroplane mode before commencing the restoration process. This is just a safety measure to keep your phone in check.
Watch out for programs with a bad review and abstain from them to avoid exposing your device to risks.
Above all, the safest means is to have a duplicate copy in external hard disks and encrypted files.
