“I deleted all photos from my Samsung galaxy S4, I just want to delete one picture but I hit “deleted all” button by mistake. Is there a way to recover deleted photos from my phone?”
Okay, there’s completely no need to go panic. This situation has happened to me more than once. Just like me, you can recover deleted pictures, videos or other files by using a good Android recovery tool – Wondershare Dr. Fone for Android.
Essentially how the program works is that you have to install it on your computer, then connect your Android phone via USB. Once the software detected your phone, allow it to scan and find the lost pictures. Then simply recover them. Download the program and follow the simple steps.
Step 1: Connect Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5/S6 to PC and enable USB debugging
After launching the program, connect your Samsung mobile to computer via USB cable. Then the program will prompt you to “Enable USB debugging” according to three different situations (If you have enabled USB debugging on your device before, you can skip this step):
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < Click “Applications” < Click “Development” < Check “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < Click “About Phone” < Tap “Build number” for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”
Step 2: Analyze and scan the data on your Samsung Galaxy
In this step, click “Next” to analyze the data on your Galaxy S3/S4 first, it will take a few seconds.
After analyzing you can see the window below, hold your phone and click “Allow” on the screen until it disappears. Then back to the Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android and click “Start” to begin the scan on your device.
Step 3: Select to scan photos on Samsung galaxy
After scanning the Android, select “Gallery” and click “Next“. And you can also select other data or select all if needed.
Then, you will go to the below window, you can choose to scan for “deleted files”, “all files” in Standard Mode or Advanced Mode as you need, and click “Next’ go to the last step.
Step 4: Preview and retrieve photos on your Galaxy S3/S4/S5/S6
preview the recoverable file in the category of “Gallery” at the left sidebar, then mark the files you want and click “Recover” to save them on your computer. Done!
Tip: This software can not only support Galaxy S3/S4, but also other Android devices, like Samsung Galaxy S2/Tab/Note, HTC, Motorola, Huawei and more.
