This might surprise you, but you can easily recover deleted files from your Android devices. Although you can't go back in time and retrieve back the files you deleted years ago, you can always recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S7 that have been recently deleted. If you have accidentally deleted some of your photos from your device, then you don't need to worry. In this post, we will teach you how to recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S7 without much trouble.

Part 1: Where Are the Photos Stored in Samsung S7?

S7 is a high-end smartphone produced by Samsung. Ideally, all the pictures that you click from your device's camera are stored in the phone's primary memory. Though, after inserting an SD card, you can change this option. Samsung S7 comes with a micro SD card slot, and the memory can be expanded to 256 GB (SD card support). Therefore, after inserting your SD card, you can go to your phone's camera setting and change the primary storage to the SD card. Nevertheless, burst images and photos that are taken from a third-party camera app (like Snapchat or Instagram) get stored on the phone's internal memory.

Now, you might be confused regarding the overall recovery process. The chances are that you can recover deleted photos from Galaxy S7 even after accidentally removing them from your device. After, when you remove something from your device, it doesn't get deleted immediately. The space that was allocated to it still remains intact (it becomes “free” to be used by something else in the future). It is just the pointer that was linked to it in the memory register that gets reallocated. It is only after a while (when you add more information to your device) when this space is allocated to some other data. Therefore, if you act promptly, you can easily recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S7. We will let you know how to do it in the next section.
