Default Data Recovery on Samsung A5

G'day,

I'm in need of knowing how to recover a bunch of deleted photos from my mrs Samsung A5 phone which my oldest daughter decided to do for shits and giggles. I'm no expert with Samsung but from what I can tell, deleted data, i.e photos are permanently deleted on first go?

Anyway, how can I recover these photos? I assume there are some recovery apps?


I don't believe cloud was activated, I could be wrong which will make this thread redundant.


Cheers

I would try DiskDigger photo recovery on the play store. I really hope you are rooted, otherwise you will most likely only get back low resolution cached thumbnails/previews.

Diskdigger retrieved those deleted photos. It basically orders photos by date so I had to go back to a certain point to find which photos they would have been but luckily the photos in question were over a certain time period (new born photos) so I could pick the ones I needed pretty easily.


Unfortunately, large thumbnails were the only image quality I could retrieve (or at least that's what I think I could retrieve). They are not very bad quality, just not the quality they were originally

There was mention about root.... I only had the option to be redirected to a link that explained about it, which I haven't quiet read yet. Maybe I'll find some answers in there.

I assume "root" is root access and if I didn't have that access I wouldn't be able to retrieve any photo at all? You did say that root would still retrieve the photos but they would be thumbnail quality.

EDIT: OK I read up a bit, it won't be rooted.


Thanks, + rep

Yeah, fortunately/unfortunately android locks apps out of functions that could recover data blocks that are marked as deleted unless you are rooted.

If you use google, I would at least load the google photos app(if not already installed), just to take advantage of the free online immediate photo backup. Amazon provides something similar as well. I use an app that automatically dumps photos to my home server via SSH2 or FTP depending on my current data connection.
