How to Perform Samsung Galaxy S6 Data Recovery with/without Backup?

 

"I was trying to move my pictures from my Galaxy S6 to a USB stick through my PC using Windows File Explorer. The 'Camera' folder on the phone was renamed in error, and I did a 'folder rename undo' not realizing what had happened. Now all my pics in that folder are gone!!! It is not on the PC either. I assume the pics are still on the internal memory somewhere but hidden. Any suggestions? Even trusted software to use?"

Thus, we recommend you make a regular backup of your Samsung Galaxy in daily life and switch off Wi-Fi/cellular data, and power off your device before recovering the deleted data with the help of Samsung S6 recovery software.
