Hi @Milind1

If you open your Gallery, tap the 3 dots in the top right corner and select 'Settings' can you see a 'Recycle Bin' option? If so please select this and you should find that your deleted images are in here. Alternatively, go to Apps > Google (folder) > Photos, and you will hopefully find an archive of your images and videos backed up here (WiFi or Mobile Data connection required).

Hey, I recently deleted the file named Camera in Files on a S8+.Any Idea  how to recover it. I tried all the apps on google play but they identify only deleted pictures from gallery and not files which is where I deleted all my images from.NOTE THAT I DELETED THE FILE NAMED IMAGES IN FILES AND NOT GALLERY. Can anyone please help me? Thanks in Advance.


Do you have a Google backup? If you've previously synced photos to the Google Photos app for backup, you can quickly retrieve them from the trash because the trash can keep deleted photos for 60 days.
Step 1. Open the Google Photos app on the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 + > click on "Trash Can" in the top left menu. All deleted photos will be listed here in detail, please find your photo.
Step 2. Touch and hold the photo you want to restore > click "Restore" to restore the photo.

When you delete photos videos album on Android phone, they would be moved to the trash bin and the device will mark these files as inactive. Actually, they still exist on your phone but are invisible and replaceable. And the system would not really erase them until you add some new files to cover them.So,you'd better stop using your phone before find back your album.

And data recover software Mobikin has powerful scanning method to scan and retrieve deleted data on Samsung phone. It deserve to try.

Except, unless you root your phone, your photos are recovered blurred and pretty much useless. Just learned this the hard way and wish to spare someone the pain.
