How to Retrieve Lost SD Card Data from Samsung with no hassle?
Q: I have a Samsung Galaxy phone and I usually surf the internet with it. Every time I see some beautiful, cute or funny pictures, I will save them on the SD card of my Samsung phone. Hence I can set the beautiful picture as my wallpaper in my Samsung, set the funny picture as the pictures of Facebook and other services or set the cute photos as facial expressions pictures and so on. But yesterday, I accidentally and carelessly delete the pictures I just downloaded. It cost much mobile traffic to download these pictures and now all of them are disappearing because of the wrong operation. I really want to find them back. Can I restore the deleted pictures from SD card? If so, could you please offer me some advices or simple method to recover the deleted pictures?
The lost, deleted or formatted photos can be certainly restored by some powerful third party tools. But before the restore processes, you need to stop playing the device and especially do not add any new pictures or photos to the SD card. Because the deletion did not damage the pictures and just turned the space that the deleted photo occupied in the SD card to be useable and turned the deleted photos to be invisible. If you add any new photos or pictures to the SD card, then the new files will take up the space that the deleted data occupied and overwrite the deleted files, which will make it impossible for you to recover the deleted pictures.
