Part1. Recover Photos from OnePlus Device Using FoneDog Android Data Recovery

No doubt that OnePlus is one of the best ever smartphones powered by Android but there are still issues that are caused by users that can lead to technical difficulties and affect the user convenience factor. Because of this, there are a lot of third-party recovery tools that focus mainly on recovering important files that Android itself cannot do on its own. Unlike iOS that has their “Recently deleted folder” that is good for 30 days for hoarding all their photos to easily recover then whenever times get rough that you needed them back, Android, on the other hand, does not have. Like other Android-powered devices, it has the capability to use Google Photos for easier restore in case you might lose them in the future or the file transfer option which is the easiest by connecting your phone to the computer and transfer the files you wanted but this may take time. However, recovery programs like FoneDog Android Data Recovery can help you recover photos and other data without putting yourself in too much stress and trouble. When this data loss attacks you, always remember that you have to stop using the device to avoid the data to be overwritten.

Part 2. Causes of the Data Loss

When your photos are gone, you can’t just blame it on another person or circumstance. There are possible reasons why these photos are deleted or removed from your OnePlus phone. Here are a few:

  1. SD or Memory card issue- Memory cards are external storage devices which allow smartphones to have another option to store files like photos, videos, music and other media contents apart from the internal or the default space provided by the device. However, a single mishandling of the memory card can lead to file system error or card corruption. If the SD card or memory card is corrupted, it will either not recognized by the phone or totally unreadable and may pop up some serious error warnings.
  1. Reformatted device – Another great culprit of data loss is reformatting or resetting the device completely without having any backups. This can happen during a lot of different events and issues such as intentionally reformatting phone or the operating system may have failed and reformatting is the only last option left.
  1. Freezing or Crashing- When the device is busy doing multiple commands, it may take a while before it can process everything you have inputted. This will then cause your phone to freeze and show a screen error like black/blank screen or white screen or stuck. It may sometimes force close a running app because of the crashed system.
  2. User Error – This is the most popular error of all, the error caused by the user whether intentional or accidental. Intentional can be like you have deleted a photo thinking it will not matter soon but you have just changed your mind. Accidental when you meant to delete another file instead but you tapped the wrong one. User error can be triggered by so many factors like the user is in a hurry, or the device was left to a kid or another person.
  1. Transfer Error- This transfer error usually happens during file transfer from the OnePlus device to the computer or can be vice versa. There could be instances that somewhere in the middle of the process the USB cable may have been disconnected. A power failure may also cause this issue and leave you with a big headache.
