Last few days possibly after updating my gallery photos have gone, obviously Google drive is set up but I haven't used it to delete photos other than the ones I wanted to remove manually but I did that last week. Pictures of my house and recent receipts (yesterday) I took are now gone. When I haven't deleted them at all...

Any idea what the hell has happened?

@gha95: To begin with, please swipe up from your Home screen > Gallery > Tap the 3 lines in the bottom right > Recycle Bin, and check to see if the missing photos have found their way here. If they have, press and hold on an image, tap on any others you'd like to recover (or hit 'All' in the top left), then hit 'Restore'. 

If this isn't applicable, and if you have a OneDrive backup, then please tap the 3 lines in the bottom right of the Gallery > Settings > Sync with OneDrive, and follow the on-screen instructions to see if you're able to restore your images in this manner. 

If you're unable to locate your images in the Gallery, then please tap the Home button > Swipe up from your Home screen > Samsung (folder) > My Files > Images, and check to see if the images are intact in this location. I also recommend swiping up from your Home screen, tapping on the Google folder and selecting 'Photos' as you should find an archive of your images and videos in this location. 

As a basic troubleshooting step, please press and hold the Power button on the side of your Galaxy S22, and select 'Restart' from the Power off menu that appears on screen. This will refresh the device, and address any temporary software issues that might be a contributing factor.

Non of this showed anything back up. I'm guessing Google drive has wiped them after a back up ( I assume)
