Re: Recovery of deleted photos

Hi @Jill28xx, I'm very sorry to hear about that. 

Xperia XA2 does not have a built in feature that allows to restore deleted pictures unfortunately. 

You can always check your Google photos and see if they are saved in the cloud there, you find this here, just log in with the same Google account that you are using in your phone and see if the pictures are stored here. 

If your pictures were saved to a SD card, maybe there are some programs that can restore files, but I can't recommend any I'm sorry to say. 

Let me know if there is anything else i can do for you.

Re: Recovery of deleted photos

I am not sure you can recover the deleted photos or not, cause if they are overwritten, it's impossible to recover them back. You can try Sony data recovery to scan your Sony phone. If they can be scanned out, you can recover them back easily. If no, sorry for that.

Re: Recovery of deleted photos

interesting. If there is no backup and it is not recommended to use the data recovery tool, how to restore photos? They won't come back by themselves. The truth is, I recommend using a data recovery tool. The Data Recovery Recovery Tool scans the device and recovers deleted photos on Xperia XA2 without the photo being overwritten. This is an effective solution without a backup.
