How to Recover Deleted Photos from Windows Phone 7
Can I recover deleted photos from Windows phone 7 SD card?
I accidentally deleted all photos for my little son's birthday from my phone's SD card, 4G, it's Windows phone 7. Is there any way I can recover them? It would mean a lot if you can help me to find them back. Thanks in advance.
Photos record the meaningful and memorable moments gone by. If you've lost some, the great news is that all your photos are stored on the SD card, not your phone's internal data card, which means you've got a good chance to recover them.
When you give a "delete" command on your phone, you're only marking the area of the SD card that held your photos "blank", in other words, reserved for new photos/data to overwrite the old. This means, as long as you haven't saved any new files to the SD card after the loss, you can recover the deleted photos from your Windows phone 7 SD card with recovery software.
