    I had been using my ONEPLUS 7PRO for 1 year , since then I have captured many photos ... But today when I visited my gallery , I could only photos from past two months , the previous other photos just vanished ... I also checked the 'Recently Deleted' folder but couldn't find any ...
    It would be great if you could help me ... TIA

    Check your cloud settings, as often there's a "free memory" option which deletes older pics from the device.

    Have you checked the Google Photos app to see if the photos are still there?

    Yes , I have those as backup but this doesn't solve my problem ; I mean it's not normal to simply disappear my photos ...

    There are features to help keep storage available. The most likely scenario is that you have one of them enabled without realizing. Google Photos may prompt you to delete local copies to free up space.

    Without knowing exactly what happened before, I can't say for certain, but not using apps that clear storage and not accepting to free up space when prompted.

    Simply refrain from accepting "free phone memory" and other "delete after uploading" options in your apps.
