How to Recover Deleted, Missing or Lost Photos

“I have a 1TB external hard drive that had close to 1000 pictures saved on it which I had clicked on my recent vacation to France. I had the pics on it for 3 straight months and it was fine but however I randomly gave a check last night and discovered the folder missing from my drive. This came as a shock as I don’t carry a backup as well so can something be done here to save the pics that have gone missing from my drive?”

One can definitely recover all his images from a storage device by making use of a recovery application. Below is a tutorial that shows how the recovery can be performed with the help of a professional recovery app.

Unless and until the lost or deleted photos are not overwritten by new data, you are guaranteed of getting it back with the help of a software as shown above. So it’s highly recommended to put your drive away and not use it after you’ve lost data from it preventing any new data from overwriting the previous data. This hampers the recovery since you permanently lose data by overwriting it with new data.

Causes for Photo loss:

  • Interrupting a process that is transferring the photos from one location to another or maybe from one device to another.
  • Deleting the images accidentally while browsing through them.
  • A virus infected drive might delete data from it without the consent of the user.

  • Includes a simple user interface capable of performing tasks in just a few mouse clicks. It’s easy to navigate, get it started and recover the lost images.
  • Once your images have been recovered, it provides you with an option to view the recovered photos so that you’re fully aware that the recovered photo is completely retrieved from the drive.
  • The software makes sure that the recovered photos are saved to a drive other than the one from which it was just recovered. This assures that you never proceed to save the recovered data to the same folder thus causing data overwrite.
  • Has the ability to recover JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF as well as other most notable and frequently used image formats.
  • Provides the list of recovered images in a directory structure.
  • Runs on all editions of Windows as well as Mac OS.
