    Deleted gallery photos / vids

    Ok, so my son gets in to my gallery and seems to have deleted the above files. I am not hopeful judging from what i could find from search facility on the forum, but I have to ask. Is there any way to recover these files? Unfortunately, I hadn't yet backed them up.

    I have a 3G 32GB stock UK Xoom running ICS.

    Any assistance would be appreciated, but maybe I have to resign myself to the loss of this data

    If you are rooted you might have a shot.

    You can google and you'll get some hits but I believe you'll need to purchase software and not sure it will work any way.

    Just to clarify, my son had set the video camera running for c.2hrs recording. I found it running and switched it off.After looking at the gallery, the camera photos and vids had gone. Searched files and couldn't find them.

    What I would like to check for future reference is whether anyone knows if the camera app has a finite amount of memory allocated to it and whether the existing items were somehow / possibly 'over-written' by the 2hr recording? I had around 18GB free memory at the time so I wouldn't expect the contents of the gallery to be affected by this.

    Sadly, it's not looking possible to recover these precious items, but I would appreciate any thoughts on the matter.

    Mount your Xoom to your PC and look through your internal and sdcard for a folder called thumbnails, sometimes your pictures are there too. It would be on internal storage, double click on DCIM and then thumbnails and see if any of your missing pictures are there.

    Hi ggrant,

    Yep, I had aleady checked the thumbnail folder both via my file browser and windows browser - no luck, so I presume they are gone for good. Looked around the web and tried a few recovery programs but the major issue with these is that the Xoom reads as an MTP rather than a USB mass storage device and thus doesn't get allocated a drive letter to permit the recovery program to do its thing...

    Noted also, a lot of sons seem to have their busy little hands in this particular issue! Moral of the story: be careful of lending Xoom to your kids and back up more often

    If anyone does find a way of recovering stuff, let me know.
    Thanks for your help ggrant.

    Peace..
