How to Recover Deleted Photos from Samsung Galaxy S3

samsung-galaxy-s-iii-pebble-blueThe fast paced world of today is of tablets and SmartPhones; and Samsung is the lead in the market. Out of many SmartPhones launched by Samsung, one of the affordable yet advanced featured phones is Samsung Galaxy S3. The large screen and various other advance features make it a good option for professionals and home users. The 8MP camera, auto-focus, and LED flash options make it the best option for clicking photos. Moreover, for fast access of the camera, it enables users to turn on the settings for opening the camera while user holds the screen of the camera with finger and rotate the phone.

Despite these impressive features, it is recommended to make the backup of your entire S3 data as data loss can occur any time due to any reason. For example, if you have the backup of your invaluable image files, then you need not worry in a situation wherein you accidentally performed complete deletion of your photos, but the issue becomes troublesome when you do not have the backup. However, you need not to panic even in such situations as well, because your photos are not gone anywhere, they still are somewhere on the memory card of your SmartPhone or on its built-in memory, depending upon the location of the ‘Gallery’ folder.

The memory card and internal drive of your S3 both work as the hard drive of your computer, which do not delete anything instantly, instead mark the space occupied by the deleted file as ‘can be reused’. Therefore, it is definitely possible to recover lost photos, but you need a specialized software to fetch such files. Moreover, it is recommended to stop using the effective storage media as this may cause utilization of marked free spaces, and hence overwriting of deleted data stored there.

There are various professional photo recovery tools available online and one of which is [tp lang=”en” only=”y”]Stellar Photo Recovery software[/tp][tp not_in=”en”]Stellar Photo Recovery software[/tp].

  1. Informative summary. After reading, I still have one question. If the photos I lost were on the S3 internal memory, would the rooting and UMS option do any good? I get the impression that it only mounts the sd card as USB. Just wondering…

  2. Great post, I have tried it once when I accidentally deleted all the photographs from my memory card. It didn’t recovered all images but some of them was recovered.

  3. Not really applicable to me since I am an iPhone user but will surely inform my friend regarding this as I have heard that she has issues with retrieving deleted photos and I was unable to help before. Thank you! 🙂
