How to Get Back Deleted Photos from Gallery

Did you know that most cloud storage services have a way to restore deleted photos? It’s like having a second chance to get your precious memories back!

Google Photos

Don’t worry if you deleted photos on Google Photos by mistake. I’ll show you how to bring them back.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open Google Photos on your phone. You’ll find it in your app drawer.
  2. Look for three horizontal lines in the top-left corner of the screen, and tap on them.
  3. Now, tap on “Bin” or “Trash” to see all the photos and videos you’ve deleted in the last 60 days.
  4. Select the ones you want to save and click on “Restore.”

Remember, Google Photos keeps your deleted photos for 60 days. After that, they’re gone for good.


If you accidentally deleted photos on Dropbox, no need to panic. I’ll guide you through the process of recovering them.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Open a web browser on your computer and go to the Dropbox website. Log in to your account.
  2. Once you’re logged in, click on “Files” and then “Deleted files.”
  3. You’ll see a list of all the things you’ve deleted. Find the files you want to restore.
  4. Select the files you want to bring back and click on “Restore.”

Keep in mind that Dropbox only keeps your deleted files for 30 days. So, make sure to restore them before that period ends.

Microsoft OneDrive

Did you accidentally delete photos on Microsoft OneDrive? Don’t worry, I’ll help you get them back.

Here’s what you should do:

  1. Open the OneDrive app on your phone.
  2. Look for the “Me” section and tap on it.
  3. Tap on “Recycle Bin” to see all your deleted files.
  4. Select the files you want to recover and tap on “Restore.”

Remember, even if your deleted files are younger than 30 days, OneDrive might delete them if your recycle bin gets full. So, act fast!

Recovering Photos from an SD Card

If you don’t use any cloud storage service, don’t worry. I’ve got a solution for you too!

Chances are you have a Micro SD card in your phone or tablet. And guess what? You can use it to store all your photos and increase the chances of recovering them if something goes wrong.

Here’s what you need to do if you accidentally delete photos:

  1. As soon as you realize you’ve deleted photos by mistake, turn off your phone and eject the Micro SD card. This way, you’ll prevent any new data from replacing your deleted photos.

How to Access Card Data: A Simple Guide

So, you’ve safely removed the Micro SD card from your phone or tablet. Now comes the next step – accessing its contents. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think. You can do this using a computer or laptop.

If you’re using a laptop, there’s a good chance it already has a built-in card reader. In that case, simply insert your card into the slot and you’re good to go. It’s as simple as that!

But what if your laptop doesn’t have a card reader? Well, you’ll need to find an external one. The good news is that most external card readers connect to your computer via a USB port. This means they are compatible with both laptop and desktop computers. So, you can easily get your hands on one and get started.

Recovering Your Photos

So, you finally got access to your memory card’s stuff. Now, it’s time to get an app to help you get back those lost photos. These apps let you see what you deleted, and if it’s not messed up, you can get it back. Most of it, anyway.

To find the right app, just do a search online. Or, here are a bunch that should do the trick:

  1. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard
  2. Recoverit
  3. Disk Drill
  4. Glary Undelete
  5. Recuva by CCleaner

Restoring Photos from Your Phone’s Memory

If you deleted photos on your phone, getting them back from the internal storage is pretty tough. But if you’ve rooted your phone, you’ve got better odds.

In that case, just install the DiskDigger Photo Recovery app from Google Play. Once it’s on your phone, do a full scan and look for .jpg and .png photos. The app checks everything, so you can use filters to narrow down the results and find your deleted photos. Just tap “Recover” to get them back.

If your phone isn’t rooted, sorry to say, but you probably can’t get those deleted photos back. But hey, you can still root your phone, install the DiskDigger app, and give it a shot. Just remember that this means wiping all your phone’s data. It’s the price you pay for the chance to recover some of your photos. Fingers crossed!

Photos Back in Place

So, with any luck, one of these methods helped you recover your accidentally deleted photos. But now, it might be a good idea to think about backing up your photos. Cloud storage services can do this for you super quick. It’s worth considering.
