December 12 2017 02:40 am/ Post By Yoli Software to Samsung

Millions of us are walking around with a Samsung Galaxy phone in our pockets, which means we are all carrying high-quality photos of precious memories. If we were to lose these photos, it would be frustrating. Photos stored on a Galaxy device, be it the S8, S7, S6, or any of the S series, may lost for a number of reasons: such as you accidentally hit the delete button when you were enjoying the pictures, or you were forced to do a factory reset on your Samsung. So are your perfect shots gone forever since then? Relax, when you thought you have lost your files permanently, it is not exactly true. 

Depending on your phone settings, your photos may be in one of the two places: on the phone internal storage, or on the external SD card. When you delete a photo, it is never wiped completely.  The phone system has a table of pointers where the location of every file is stored. When you hit the delete button, only this pointer is deleted, not the actual file. So, the file is still there, you just can't see it, but that location can have a new file written to it at any time. This is why it's important you stop using your phone right away and find a way to recover deleted photos from Samsung as quickly as you can.
