    Dear all,

    Just yesterday I accidentally deleted one very important family photograph from my 1+1. I am suffering from the pain of my stupidity and need to know if there is any way to get back that photo without rooting my phone. I have not installed in any backup app like Dumpster or alike.

    Praying for a silver lining :)

    I too accidently deleted all my photos from the app 'quickpic'. I had close to 70 family pics.

    Open your Photos app
    In that press menu button and go under trash. There you will get all your deleted photos.
    Photos>menu button>trash

    How about using recuva after connecting it to your pc? That might do the trick.

    Mostly you can't recover the photos.. because the data being overwritten by other apps data.

    You can lastly try to use some Recovery software and try to scan the memory for files. But chances are very less.

    hm.. then its lost :(

    Any way next time just enable the Google+Photos auto upload feature and all you photos on the phone will be uploaded in the full resolution to Google servers with no limit. ;)

    Yes there is a limit, but mostly there is no limit:) Here a extract from the Google support forum (https://support.google.com/picasa/answer/6558?rd=1)
    In Google+, you may have a few blurry images, accidental videos, and photos of the inside of your pocket that are taking up space. Keep in mind that photos up to 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes long won't count toward your storage limit.

    Guys,connect to a system and use recuva (deep scan) ,You can almost get all the files.And the chances for the data being overwritten by other apps data is 50% or less as the device is 64 GB or unless you utilized the entire memory.And yes there is a problem while connecting to system on 4.00android version ,but it is updated & rectified in latest updates including the oneplus one.

    hi guys,

    i tried recuva - it doesnt recognize the device on my pc. i tried Undeleter..this needs your phone to be rooted. i also tried Dumpster...this does not extract photos deleted prior to installing this recovery app. basically nothing worked. only one thing helped. that is...TIME. time helped heal the wound and permanently erase the trauma memory of the accidental photo delete. :p :D if anyone still has a solution, pls do share.

    If you use Ubuntu there is command line application called photorec. I think it is available for windows also. Got best results using photorec once I tried to recover photos from a microsd card.

    Have you tried to use a program named Tenorshare Android Data Recovery Pro? I ever used it to recover deleted photos from my phone. I think you can have a try!
