I understand the fundamentals of how to recover photos from the gallery app, but for whatever reason there is no recycling bin option in my gallery's settings. Neither google photos or the cloud have the photo I'm looking for, though I have had sync turned on all this time. I'm using a galaxy s8 with android version 7.0, and gallery version 5.4.02.12, apparently.
Hey. if you go into the gallery and click the 3 dot menu shown in the pic you should have a recycle ♻️ bin option.
well, that's just it, there is no recycling bin in my settings, or under the 3 dots that you click to activate the drop down menu that contains settings. No trash, no recycling bin. As for the picture, I was able recover by downloading the mobisaver app, so that issue is solved. But it doesnt explain why I have no recycling bin.
