How to Recover Deleted Videos and Photos on Your Android Phone

When you delete a file from your Android phone or tablet, the system only deletes the information related to its location in the device’s memory. The file is not completely deleted and, as long as you do not overwrite the memory space it occupied, you can recover it with some application or program.

If the file was in the external memory of the device, you can easily retrieve it with the Recuva program. However, if the file was in the Android phone’s internal memory, you must previously rootear your Android to be able to download DiskDigger: an application that allows you to recover deleted photos and videos from an Android device.
