Q: You know that the photos have large sizes, so I deleted the photos on my Nexus phone to free up the memory space yesterday. But finally it turns out that my backup was lost somehow. What should I do now? I just want to know if I can find back my deleted photos and how. Thanks in advance if any of you can help me solve the problem. I am waiting for the answer!

Is is possible to recover the deleted, lost or formatted files? The answer is absolutely yes! It is not a big deal as long as you use the professional software. But you need pay attention to the matters that you need to make sure that there are no new files being added to your files. And actually you'd better stop using your device or at least do not take new photos as soon as you find the photos are lost. Because the new files will take up the space that the deleted one occupied and overwrite the deleted data. Then you can never recover your lose photos any more.

Then all the files will be displayed as different categories so you can find your wanted files easily and clearly. Finally with just one click, you can recover the deleted files.
