    Hey Everyone,

    I haven't seen a thread that addressed the deletion of pictures specifically. I realize that there are safeguards in place to ensure that you don't accidentally delete a picture but, under the hypothetical situation that you had deleted an important picture is there any recommended solution to recovering it? Are there any applications that works specifically well with the Pre? Thanks in advance.

    You can try Art Plus Digital Photo Recovery. I don't know if the Pre's file structure is similar to a memory card, but it's a free program so it won't hurt to try.

    As a precaution, if you have pictures that important (or anything else for that matter), you should email them to yourself. That way you have a reliable backup as well as access to them should your phone become non-functional.

    Hi Turvey.

    I've had good success with this program for recovering deleted files:
    www z-a-recovery com

    The demo version allows you to recover a few files, so you probably don't even need to buy it.
    I just ran the program on my Pre's media drive, and it found JPEGs I'd deleted, along with images I don't know where they came from - maybe Twitter icons.
    It has a preview screen to help find the needed file.

    Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
    Regards,
    Josh

    I have used Art Plus Digital Photo Recovery as posted by Darth Mo, and it works wonderfully at recovering some deleted photos, although as with any recovery program, there is a great chance the photos have become corrupted, (note thumbnail will appear just fine) but the picture will either be unable to open or will be partially gone. If you do run into this problem let me know, I am able to recover from this.

    I managed to find a few of the pictures which were deleted using Art Plus, thank you very much for the tip! Although some of them seem to be lost forever, I can live with it. Thank you again for everyone's help.

    As a side note, I also found many of the images that other people seem to have found in this thread. Kind of an interesting and odd find, but good to know it's on everyone's!

    Recuva from Piriform (The same folks that make the insanely popular CCleaner), is an excellent utility, and has recovered files even commercial utilities couldn't get.

    I've used Pandora Recovery to recover images, videos & mp3s from a few SD cards & computer hard drives. Never tried it for my Pre but I imagine it would work just as well

    It's funny how the 2 threads interlink to each other, even though the other basically just says to see this thread over and over..
    More serious question though..

    Where's a compiled version of testdisk for webOS? My widk is a bit broken so I can't get this to compile. (I even grabbed both of the Maemo binaries but those wouldn't work (Wanted GLIBC2.7).)

    I managed to use the z-a-recovery tool that was mentioned to recover all my files after a mis-doctoring, but it would be great to have this generally available for all. (And anyways, I had to borrow a windoze box to use z-a..)
    palm lineage: VzPre+ to Pre2 to Pre3, now using a AT&T Pre3 on wifi and Panda Touchpad.
    DU unlock codes available (Veers, Pres, etc, Oh my!)
    Has Pre3s & tpFauxG for sale!

    Hi,
    If you have deleted important pictures from your memory card, then you need to recover deleted pictures from memory card by using Remo Recover (Windows)-Media edition to recover those pictures. Apart from pictures recovery, this software also supports recovery of media files like audio and video files. It was beneficial for me also in recovering all my deleted pictures few days back. You just have to download the software and check its utilities. Hope this will help you.
