try this if not rooted =
try this if rooted =

keep in mind 1.Stop using your phone right away. 'cause every time you add a new file may mean that the picture of a deleted file is taken. In other words, there is no coming back when the data are overwritten.

if you have an account with google (ie gmail address) and are using google photos app then by logging in to your account , (for instance going to the google photo app it will prompt you for your account if not logged in) you should see your pics, otherwise check any online cloud you might have stored your pics in, box, dropbox, etc...

No I never had this issue, I normally get photos off my device straight away anyways, I don't normally store photos,videos, the odd music or two that work with games that's about it.

Just thought these might help you, I have only heard they work but for who and for what reason I do not know, some people might be able to save their work some will not, but there is no harm in trying if the photos are really worth trying to get back..

Good luck.

If you did not backup them before, I think data recovery tool can be a good choice.

Your brand of phone has a set of its own tools also go to the manufacturers site for them. If your phone is under warranty they may be able to help you at support as well.

walker16737 days ago


Thanks. But it is not in the warranty period. I have tried some software to get these photos back, but they can only recover the photos which are stored in the memory card. How about those photos stored in my phone? Can't get them back?

to be truthful I never thought so because they warn you if you reset it will be gone forever, its like losing programs when your hard disk fails. sometimes you just have to swallow it and backup next time. I lost everything on a few external hard drives and once I lost all my websites its the nature of these electronics it happens to everyone. get a dropbox and when you are not busy upload new photos to it you will always have your photos. still they can be lost, live and learn, again you can always put some photos you want to share on facebook too then those will be there.

As a last resort at the manufacturers site search to see if they have a program for restoring photos in case of reformatting the drive. You never know if anyone can retrieve them it would be Samsung.

I'm sorry for the bad news I know how you feel.

Photos loss happens unexpectedly. Samsung Data Recovery may help you a lot to retrieve phoots from Android phone memory or SD Card. It is a program with human-based designs which is quick and easy to use. And the software support many Android devices such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Sony.

Accidentally deleted files (photos, videos) off your Android phone or tablet such as HTC M8, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G3, Sony Xperia Z3 etc. To you, those photos and videos are more valuable than the phone itself. Well, be no worry, you can get them back.

Android photos recovery can recover deleted/formatted files from Android devices without taking out the SD card or CF card inside the Android phone or tablet. This program has a strong ability that not only can retrieve deleted photos from Galaxy s6/s7 and videos, but also can recover contacts, text messages, and other data.

Try hooking it up to your PC with the Wise File Restoration Wizard installed, try to scan the device with that, if it doesn't work try using a kind of software that can scan mobile devices.

Thanks, but I stored my photos in my phone not in PC. I don't think that will be helpful to use wise file restoration.

Well, don't worry, you can still recover your lost photos before they were covered by new data, so stop using your phone and use an android data recovery app to help,

Photos can be recovered before they are overwritten by new data, the more you write data, the less likely you’ll be able to retrieve the lost data.

it's hard to get back all lost data back after your phone was restored to factory setting. you can try following method to find out those files that are not overwritten.
1. Connect your phone to computer via USB cable.
2. Download Android Data Recovery to your computer. Install and launch it and you’ll see the interface below. Click “Refresh Device” and the software will recognize storages on your phone.
3. Select the storage device where deleted photos were stored and click “Next” button to start scanning.
4. Preview and recover deleted photos. Select photos you want to recover and click “Recover” button to save deleted photos on computer. It takes time to complete scanning based on the size of selected storage device, please wait patiently.
