Deleted photo recovery

Many users sooner or later face a situation where they accidentally deleted the wrong photo, and are now looking for ways to recover lost photos. If you read this page, then most likely you have already checked the Recycle Bin and did not find the photos you need there. In your case, the only way to get your deleted photo back is to use a special data recovery software. Also note the following - the more you used the device on which the photos were stored after you deleted the photos, the less chance of successful recovery. And vice versa - if you deleted photos and immediately realized that you made a mistake and did not use the device, then most likely you will get your deleted photos back.

There are also some differences in the process of deletion depending on the file system type that was used on the device. You can get more information about the specifics of deleting files on different file systems on this page.

But in general, you most likely are dealing with one of the most popular Windows file systems - NTFS, FAT32 or exFAT.
