Jenny has a Samsung Tab 4 which she uses all the time.
Yesterday she accidentaly pressed the delete button on
her 'internal storage' and so has wiped out out all her
files and photo's!
Is it possible that they can be recovered from the device
or have they gone for good.

Sorry to hear that, Bill. Can't help on the techy front, but in future I suggest you do what I do whenever there's photo's taken you want to keep. As soon as practical copy them to as many storage devices as possible. Computer, memory stick, cloud storage, whatever. Never trust just one point of storage - it will fail you eventually!

Regards, Ray.

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

Oh, dear, BB, I'm sorry to hear that. The first things to do is STOP USING THE TABLET. Do not mess around with it in the hope of 'happening' on a solution.

Then do an Internet search for How To Recover Deleted Photos From Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. There are a number of recovery programs out there. I've never used any so don't know how good they are, but I've found with the 'free' ones, some of the facilities are blocked until you pay for the full program. It might be worth trying a 'free' one to see if it looks promising.

This advice is from a total non-expert. Someone like GaryCantley or Woodwose could probably give you better advice.

Thanks for the replies so far. She has just informed me
that it's a Tab 'A' not a 4.

I don't think the model actually makes a difference, as the recovery programs are designed to interrogate the OS not the device.

If you're going to use a third party progam, be sure to check that it supports your OS before parting with your money. I've just been looking at the Remo recovery program, which is highly regarded, but noted that it doesn't support Android Lollipop 5.0, which is what I think your tablet runs on.

So long as the tablet isn't being used, and the old date overwritten, it won't hurt to take some time researching a number of different programs before taking the plunge.

Hi Bill,

Just a few notes of caution for you. Where possible please make sure that you don't install/upgrade or otherwise write any more data to the disk on this device. The more data written to it the lower the chance of recovery. I have had experience in recovery of multiple media types from a variety of operating systems. It is always the case that the chance of recovery is higher if done externally to the device. By that i mean that the disk should be removed and interrogated from a seperate machine rather than installing software on the device to carry out the recovery.

If you want any help - give me a shout.

Best regards
Mike

Try Samsung cloud to see if they are still in there.
But I fear not, worth a try though.

Mike is correct , do not 'add' or download any programmes to recover . The tab A has to be  connected to a pc for recovery . Most are recoverable , dependant on how much button pressing you have done to try to undo the mistake . Most PC repair shops can do it for you at not a lot of cost .

hope it works out ok for you

Just an addendum. Make sure whoever you take it to has a GOOD understanding of not only the recovery of data from an Android system but also that they are capable of deconstructing a tablet like a Samsung Tab A. This is NOT and i stress NOT for the fainted hearted. You can cause serious irreparable damage to a tablet with a high power lipo battery if you don't know what you're doing.
