How to Recover Lost Photos on Android Phones

Have you ever inadvertently deleted your photos from an Android phone, or reset the phone to factory setting by mistake, re-formatted the microSD card in the phone, or photos in the phone were lost due to memory card corruption or other unknown reasons? What you might not know is you still have the chance to recover those lost photos by using files recovery tool. Here we take comprehensive data recovery software named Card Recovery Pro for example. Card Recovery Pro is the leading SD card recovery software to recover photos and other files from mobile phone, microSD card or digital camera SD card.

Now, please follow the steps below to perform lost photos recovery

Step 1

Download Card Recover Pro here and install it by following the on-screen instructions. 
Note: It's important not to install it on the same drive as your deleted files as the act of installing a new piece of software may itself cause deleted files to be overwritten. If you have only one drive, consider placing it temporarily in an external drive and running the recovery from a different computer.

Step 2

Plug your card reader into your computer and select the root directory of where your camera stores its image files -- provided it hasn't disappeared when the card was formatted or the pictures were deleted. This is typically a folder called DCIM, or the name of the camera manufacturer or model.

Step 3

Click "Start Scan", and then click "Next" to start the scan.
