Ever wondered how to recover and restore all deleted/lost photos, JPEG files on your Android device? Well, good news!
The guys at Defiant Technologies, LLC have finally created a FREE Android app called DiskDigger that allows users to retrieve, recover all photo files that have been lost or removed due to deliberate or accidental deletion.
Free Android App To Recover, Restore Lost Photos, JPEG filesDiskDigger for Android (link) is all you need when you want to recover deleted photos and images from your Android device. Think of DiskDigger as a Recycle Bin, but for Android, which means you can still recover those photos, JPEG files that were accidentally deleted.
Using the app:
Here's how to restore, recover deleted/lost photos with DiskDigger:
Step 1 Download and install DiskDigger for Android at Google Play Store.
Step 2 Launch the app. It should display all the system devices (including the memory card) that you can scan for lost files, as seen below:
For now, it will list them using their Linux device names (not very visually appealing, but this will be improved in the future). The memory card should appear as "/mnt/sdcard" or something similar.
Step 3 Select the device to scan (memory card in our case), and then press the "Scan device" button to proceed (you might see a Superuser request window; just press "Allow").
You will then see the main DiskDigger window, which shows you the progress of the scanning, as well as the recoverable files that have been found so far:
Step 4 You can press on any of the recoverable files, which will show you a preview of the file on the right, as shown below:
Step 5 And finally to recover the deleted files, just tick the recoverable files on checkbox and then hit "Save" or "Email".
You may also take advantage of the Filter function of the app. Just press the "Filter" button to filter the recoverable files based on file type, and file size. This is useful if you want to impose a minimum size on the files shown.
Diskdigger for Android is extremely useful for those looking for ways on how to recover deleted/lost photos from their Android device. The app is currently on its beta stage and will only recover the .JPG and .PNG files of your device.
