Q: My dad bought an iPad to me and I love playing it very much especially taking photos. Because the iPad has a big screen and camera with high pixel and the device enables me to take photos with high quality. Besides, browsing photos with iPad is convenient and clear. I stored many photos on my device and browsed them from time to time. But the screen of the device is big so it is easy to tap on the wrong button. Yesterday, I was browsing the photos on the iPad and was going to delete some blurred photos. Unfortunately, I tapped on the wrong button to format the photo gallery and all the photos were deleted. So do have any solutions that can help find back the lost photos. I did not have any backups so I have no idea about it now. Thanks in advance if you can offer some advices.

Is it possible to find back your lost files from iOS devices? Yes! Of course! But first you'd better stop playing your device in case that any new files are added in the storage space. The reason why the deleted files can be restored is that the files that you deleted or formatted did not disappear. Actually the deletion just turns the space that the deleted files took up to be useable and turn the files to be invisible. If you add any new files to the device and then the new data will overwrite the deleted files. Hence the deleted files will have no possibility to be recovered.

If you want to recover the deleted files, you need a powerful recovery software. And MobiKin iPad File Recovery (Windows/Mac) is the software that can meet your needs.
