    Photo Recovery

    Recovery of photos or images from Android devices is currently a very popular service. For many users, Android smartphones and tablets are not just devices for games and communications, but also portable, yet fully-functional, cameras that store their favorite photos. Breaking, losing, or submerging any portable device is a lot easier than doing the same to a desktop computer and, therefore, the risk of losing data is higher as well.

    In most cases, your data gets lost after the damage of its logical structure. When an SD card is formatted or the Android file system is corrupted, it only destroys the table containing information about the location of the photo file, but the photo itself remains unchanged (unless it has been intentionally overwritten with a data shredder). And that’s when you can recover your photos on your own without the help of specialized Android data recovery services, thus saving you some money.

    Photos or any other files on an Android device can be lost for various reasons. Sometimes users delete files or format their SD card by mistake. These are the most common situations where recovery is nearly 100% possible, given that nothing has been written to the flash memory after file deletion or card formatting.

    All modern digital devices running Android can take photos and shoot videos, thus attracting both amateurs and professionals with flexibility and rich functionality. A photo that has just been taken can be immediately viewed on the screen and even edited in a photo editor. The SD memory of the devices can be easily ejected and plugged into a computer. However, just like all other digital drives, SD cards are vulnerable to physical and logical damage and may lose the data stored on them. The reasons for this can be very different; and so can the consequences. If you have accidentally deleted important photos on your phone or tablet, don’t use the device after you’ve discovered your loss. This is very important! Old deleted photos can only be recovered if they have not yet been overwritten with new ones (on the SD cards).


    Attention: once you know there is a problem with your files, do not take any more photos or shoot videos, and don't format your SD card - otherwise, photo recovery may become impossible.

    How to recover photos from SD card

    Well, you were lucky, and if your photos that are located on the SD card weren't physically destroyed, i.e. not destroyed by fire or sunspot radiation, you can easily proceed to restoring the data from your Android device.

    First of all, do not pull the SD card from your phone or tablet and don’t restart your device. When an Android device is restarted, new service information is written to the file system that overwrites previous records about deleted photos. Our deep scanning technology called Vidid™, which is used in Photo Recovery for Android, successfully recovers data with outstanding quality. The program supports all types of image files and comes with a refreshingly intuitive interface. The software features automatic recognition of the type and model of your Android device connected via a USB cable, 7 algorithms of cluster assembly, sorting of recovered data by types, and the fastest scanning among its closest competitors.

    Just complete these several simple steps to start:

    Click the link below, download and install Photo Recovery for Android on a Windows-based PC.

    After that, you'll be just three steps away from recovering your precious photos


    1. Connect

    To start the recovery of deleted photos, you need to connect your Android device to a computer in the Mass Storage mode.

    Find the USB cable that came with your phone or tablet and plug it into a USB port. Connect the other end of the cable to the Micro or Mini USB port of the Android device. Once connected, open the pull-down menu on your Android device and tap the "mount" option. Now both of your SD cards (internal and external) are connected to the computer in the Mass Storage mode. As soon as you complete the actions below, the program will automatically recognize the Android device and will be ready for recovering lost photos.

    Prior to starting the file recovery process, make sure you have another drive that you will be saving data to. For instance, it can be an internal hard drive in a computer or an external USB drive.

    2. Scan

    Once your Android device is successfully connected to a computer, the program will automatically switch to scanning mode (see the screenshot). Click the screenshot to enlarge it.

    Click the Start button and wait for the scanning process to finish. Do not disconnect your phone or table from the computer while the scan is in progress, since it may result in data loss.

    During scanning, the program works in the data reading mode and cannot damage any data on your Android device. The program’s advanced scanning, analysis, and cluster “bit-by-bit” assembly algorithms will help you accurately recover your deleted photos.

    3. Recovery

    After scanning, the program will automatically switch to the data saving mode. Select the necessary photo file or an entire folder with photos and click the Recover button. The program will explain all further steps.

    It won’t be difficult to find the necessary photo in a tree-like list of files. All the files are sorted by data type and have the original folder structure. As a rule Android-based devices store photos and videos in the following location - SD_Card:\DCIM\Camera\photo.jpg. The “DCIM” abbreviation stands for Digital Camera IMages, and this standard helps organize data on Android media devices.

    Once the necessary files are saved, you can then find them in the specified location and check their quality. Just open these photo files and see how well the software carried out the photo recovery problem.
