It is also quite easy to use as you may already know, allowing you to clean the junk files on the device in a single click thereby clearing storage space and speeding up the device.

Part 1: What is Clean Master?

Clean Master is an Android app that is designed to help you remove junk files on your Android device. Used by millions of Android device owners, this app is free to download and works by analyzing the device and all the apps installed on it. The analysis often culminates in Clean Master letting you know the number of junk files on the device.

There are two ways to recover files delete by Clean Master. Let's take a look at both methods in greater detail.

Method 1: Restore from Clean Master "Recently Deleted" Folder

Step 1: Open the Clean Master app on your device

Step 2: Go to Tools > Photo Cleaner > Recently Deleted

Step 3: If the photos are in this folder, you can easily just select the ones you need and restore them to your device.
