How to Recover Photos from iPod Touch

What do you do when you suddenly discover that some of the photos on your iPod Touch are missing? For most people this a panic moment that quickly turns into sadness especially when the pictures in question are of sentimental value. If you have recently lost some of the photos on your device, worry not. This article will provide you with a solution that will help.

Part 1: Can you Recover Deleted Photos from iPod Touch

Under certain circumstances the deleted photos can be recovered. This is despite the fact that your iPod doesn't come with a recycle bin. If you had a backup of the photos, you can recover them if you restore from the iTunes or iCloud backup. If you don't have a backup of the photos, as long as you don't overwrite them, you can recover them using a good data recovery tool.

In order to avoid overwriting the photos, stop using the device as soon as you discover that the photos are missing. In fact you should refrain from using the device until you can recover the photos.

Part 2: How to Recover Deleted Photos from your iPod

Like we mentioned before, you can recover your deleted photos in one of three ways. Let's look at all three of them.

1.Recover from iTunes

In order to recover your lost photos via iTunes, you must have included them in a recent iTunes backup. If you had, then all you have to do is restore the backup and your photos will be recovered. Here's how to do it.

Step 1: Launch iTunes on your computer and then connect the iPod using USB cables. Select the iPod when it appears.

2.Recover using iCloud

You can also choose to recover the photos by restoring from an iCloud backup. Again this is only possible if you had backed up the device via iCloud. Here's how to do it.

Step 1: To restore from an iCloud backup, you first of all need to erase all the data on you device. To do this go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents. You may need to enter your passcode to complete the process.
