I recently noticed my camera roll has completely disappeared from my gallery.
The photos were not deleted and do not show up in my recycle bin, I have restarted and cleared cache, checked for hidden folders and .nomedia files to no avail.
There are a few pictures in recycle bin that I manually deleted earlier in the week, but they now show as grey exclamation Mark's and cannot be restored.
Photos were not on the cloud. I have an s8. Is there anything else I can try / any hope left?
HI @Pe10 Have you searched in My Files as well as Google photos? Do you have syncronisation with One Drive set up? Are you photos not backed up anywhere else. I would recommend backing up photos and files, cannot really take the chance.
However if you cannot locate anywhere you might be able to recover using Data Recovery software,I cannot recommend any one myself though as have not needed this option but you see some information here https://geekflare.com/android-data-recovery/
