Hey guys, it’s been long since I’ve dropped any post about mobile trick. So on my today’s post, Samaira will be showing us some simple but yet effective mobile trick/ tips that will be beneficial to all android phone users. Trust me when I say that the trick will work on all android device :).
Now, without wasting much of our time, let’s go straight to the tutorial shall we…

Recover using Computer: This is the simplest way to recover photos from your phone that stores photos on a memory card, Remove the card from your phone carefully and put it in a card reader and connect it to your computer. Now download and install a data recovery utility from net like CardRecovery or Stellar Phoenix Photo recovery and use it’s instructions to recover photos from the card.
We’ll take CardRecovery as an example here
- Run the application, on the Welcome window click Next.
- Now the software expects you to specify the drive letter of your card reader,
- Specify file types to retrieve as images and pictures.
- Specify the location to save the retrieved files to.
Before saving the retrieved images to the specified location the software lists thumbnails of all the images recovered for you to select which ones you want to keep. The selected images get saved to the specified location.
Before you set about recovering your photos using this method, you need to know that nothing gets actually deleted from the memory, only the listings get removed so the memory space becomes available for new data. It is much like you would still have tenants, but the space get listed as available for new ones. Since that is the case, you would want to not add photos to the phone or your old photos may get overwritten, also recovery operations must be performed as soon as possible
This method works whether your phone is running Android or not, it works for any device or equipment that saves the photos to a memory card.
Recovery from Phone: If your phone saved files on internal memory, you might have a harder time recovering photos. Google Play offers some apps like T2J that works on some models, does not on others. There are other apps that provide better recovery from the phone like DiskDigger, but they expect Rooted Android phones. Rooting is very much like running your windows with Administrative rights. Rooting however is a grey technique and voids warranties, moreover if not handled properly it can ‘brick’ your phone, which means it may break your system so bad that it would turn your phone into a brick.
Backup: This is more of a precaution than cure. Google does provide backing up sms, mms, settings, apps calendars but for some reason the company has chosen not to provide photo backup facility to the users. But there are other ways. Most natural way is to stick to your google account that you use with your android device and use its space to back as many things up as you possibly can. Google Play offers Drive App that lets you operate your Google Drive from your phone. If you happen to have a compatible phone, use Google Drive to upload all your important photos to the cloud. Just launch the App and select Upload, which lets you choose photos from gallery or wherever you might have them on your phone. This applies to all your important documents as well. If your phone is not compatible, there are other apps, but they store photos in their own spaces they provide you when you sign up an account with them. Some are better than others, like Photobucket Mobile lets you choose to have your photos uploaded on the cloud automatically as you click them, while Flickr and Picasa are more conventional and wait for you to upload your photos yourself. If none of the backup methods suite you, the good old method of keeping a copy on your system always works. Simply connect your phone to your system in Disk Drive mode, locate the DCIM folder and copy the photos to your system.

Since recovery is never going to be a process with 100% success, it makes sense to be careful that critical data and important photos are always kept where they are less likely to be lost and not in a phone which is more roughly used (than say a computer system) and is likely to get lost itself, in which case no recovery trick is going to help you.
