Dear all, what can I do to recover accidental deleted photos from my Android phone? My computer is a Mac. Best regards.
The answer depends on where your photos were deleted from. If the photos were saved in your Android phone's internal memory, I'm sorry to tell you that you can hardly get them back unless you have a backup on your Mac. But if it was the SD card of your Android phone where the deleted photos used to located, I’m glad to tell you the chance of retrieving your photos is great as long as they are not overwritten by new data on your Android phone.
So, stop using your Android phone and take out the SD card immediately after the photos were lost, then you can use Recoverit for Mac to restore Android deleted photo on mac easily.
