How to Recover Photos & Videos from LG Optimus

Deleted some files from your LG Optimus but now you want them back, or maybe you just accidentally formatted your phone and want to recover all your photos and videos? If so, this is the right place for you. Here we'll show you how to recover lost photos and videos from LG Optimus. Read on for the details.

When photos, videos and music are deleted or formatted from your LG Optimus, many people think that they're gone and don't exist anymore. In fact, it's not true. Those files just become invisible, and the place that they occupied on the memory card is marked as available for new files. Your previous files are really erased only when they're overwritten by new files.

To perform LG Optimus photo recovery, you need a LG Optimus recovery tool at first. If you don't have one yet, here is my recommendation: Wondershare Photo Recovery, or Wondershare Photo Recovery for Mac. Both are professional and reliable software, which enable you to recover deleted, formatted photos, videos and music from LG Optimus Q, LG Optimus V, LG Optimus 2X, and more, without any quality loss. You only need 3 steps to complete the whole task.

What if the driver for LG phone does not turn up, then what should I do? I connected my phone and tried to find the driver, but there was not the driver while I connected my USB and it appears. Please advise on this issue, I really want to recover my precious photos. Thanks
You can try connecting your LG phone or its memory to your computer. And you're likely to recover lost data as long as it can be recognized as drive by your computer.
Should this still work if my phone is locked? The screen on my phone is broken, so I can't unlock it. Thanks
I'm glad to hear that your deleted photos have been found. This means you can retrieve them easily. Please activate the full version to reclaim any photos you want to recover.
I downloaded this and it found my deleted photos, but they are tiny. I don't see any way to bring them up on my screen full size. I clicked on "select all" and Recover, and then when it wants me to pay to activate the process, I click on free trial. But I'm not finding the photos saved to my computer. Help!
