    Lost Photos During Rooting. Any Hope of Recovery?

    I succesfully Rooted my Nexus, meticulously following Wug's backup options, making copies of EVERYTHING. But, when I went to restore, all the photos EXCEPT those in the camera itself restored. That's several hundred photos I would like to have back. In the past, my phone got wiped by accident, I was able to attach it to my MAC as an external drive and do a restore with Data Recovery II, which is some of the best of its kind on the market. But, MAC doesn't automatically recognize my Galaxy Nexus as a USB and, though ICAN use the Android File Transfer software program, I CAN'T get my Data Recovery II software to view it as an external drive, which is needed to recover the photos.

    So... what to do? Again, I already tried to do a restore of the Android Backup file and the Data/Media File, to no avail. Do I need to revert to stock to run those restores, in order to see if my photos are still there? Also, I tried using some kind of free photo recovery software on my PC, and it said the phone doesn't recognize as FAT32 file structure (even my old Palm OS and WebOS devices registered as FAT32), so it can't do a restore.

    Am I completely out of luck?

    thanks

    You can safely recover all your Android phone pictures using Android Photo Recovery. The tool is capable of recovering lost or deleted text messages, call history, Whatsapp contacts, messages and media files. It supports recovery from internal and external memory of your Android device. If your device is rooted successfully, it can help you recover the lost photos on Android with high rate of success. Give it a try!

    In fact, it is a common case to lose the phone data. You may delete them accidently, or your device may be attacked by virus and so on. But on no account can you let it be. Instead, you should try to restore them. And here, Android Data Recovery, a very effective recovery tool, is your best choice. The program is dedicated to recover data in Android, including pictures, music and videos. Now you can use it to recover deleted photos on Samsung device as soon as possible.
