Hello, I hope someone can help me.

I have a Samsung Galaxy 2 10.1 Tab, but unfortunately I have accidentally deleted most of my precious photos. I had not backed them up... which I now really regret. Is there any way I can recover my photos back??

Thanks a million to anyone who can help.

There may be a couple of options. If you connect it to a PC/laptop then the gallery thumbnails might still be in the DCIM folder. If not, there are a few freeware programmes for windows that can recover files from any memory card. Check CNET, or a similar tech site, and search for data recovery. There are similar apps for android, but they need root and aren't as successful in recovering data.

Just stop taking or saving new photos or videos to avoid data overwriting, and then you can use External Links are Forbidden to recover the deleted photos.
