How can I recover deleted photos from the internal memory???

Hello,

 

I was using Sony Bridge to import photos from my phone to my Mac.

After importing.. the software told me it was successful and complete then asked me if I wanted to delete the pics off my phone.. I pressed 'yes' because my phone was full on memory..

 

After it was finished deleting I then decided to check my imported photos only to find they wern't even there?!??! It has created an iPhoto library.. but it won't even open and seems to be empty.. 

 

All the photos are now deleted off my phone and I can't seem to find them anywhere on my Mac. I have tried recovery programs with no luck. 

I am seriously upset :'(

 

Is there any way to recover them from my internal memory!??! :-( 

Are they on my Mac??!! Because Sony Bridge told me they had successfully imported!!!

You can try with Drfone / Wondershare too for this... I hope it can help you, and dont make any more photos until you try the tool

Those won't recover photos on the internal storage

I'd use Hetman Recovery software (they have plenty different versions) to recover deleted items, but I am not sure if they have a version for Mac.

Hi Natasha_L!

 

Sorry to hear that your photos are missing.

 

I have been in contact with the development crew, to see if there is a way to get them back.

 

As soon I get some information from them I will write back to you.

 

 

Best regards

 

Fredrik

Hi Natasha_L

 

I'm very sorry for the late answer.

 

I got a reply from the development crew today.

 

 

We tested it and indeed we were able to reproduce it in the case that the iPhoto Library has been migrated into the new Photo Library.

If that is the case, the user might be able to recover the pictures in the following directory:

~/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Auto Import

If unfortunately the pictures are not there, there is an slight possibility that they still remain in the temporary directory, as they are first copied there and then moved into the Auto Import folder. To search that temporary directory, the user can run this command in the Terminal.app:

find /var/ -name "iphoto" 2>/dev/null

 

The problem will be fixed to BFM(4.1).

 

Best regards

 

Fredrik
