Re: Samsung Galaxy S8 pictures disappeared

This happened to me last week and I am confident in saying there is no way to recover it. 

 

I too lost my photos on internal storage on the S8+

 

Phone updated to oreo, woke up the next morning and ALL my photos were gone. (DCIM folder)

 

I'm a 3rd Line Engineer so you can be assured I've tried everything and there is no way to recover them without a backup. 

 

I started by using the recovery apps (Recuva, es file manager, disk digger, photo recovery)

 

Tried looking at all the files, checking all my backups, looking for NOMEDIA, looking for LOSTDIR, I have no SD card so all internal. 

 

All this doesn't work, and for it to dig deeper into internal memory, the phone has to be rooted. (using TWRP & Odin)

 

You also can't root until you erase internal memory. So you are basically stuck in a vicious cycle. 

 

I even rooted the device eventually, used ADB tools to try to unencrypt the data file and see if I could find my files, but Samsung has a unique code on all devices stopping you from getting in. I spent 2 straight days on this. 

 

There is no way around this, I am shocked, but also feel like it's my fault for not having a backup.... then again with iCloud, it just automatically backed up so how can it be... 

 

Thinking of it, after reading everyone's comments, I feel that I am at ease as I have only lost a couple of holiday photos (had this phone for a month) as opposed to special memories. 

 

The phone is now sold and I got myself a proper phone, iPhone XS Max.

 

I am never getting another android phone again.
