Check cloud

Thankfully, there is always a backup on the cloud when images are accidentally erased from local storage. In this instance, Google Photos, which comes preinstalled on all phones, is the most popular cloud backup service for Android.

So visit Google Photos and take a look at the images; you might discover the deleted shot has been safely backed up to the cloud, or to Google Drive to be more accurate.

Tip: go to photos.google.com on a desktop and you’ll see every backup image linked to your Google ID.
