In this article, we will show you how you can recover photos from Android phone internal memory using only the most effective recovery software which is FoneDog Toolkit- Android Data Recovery.

Part 1. The Basics of Android Memory

As we all know there are two types of memory most Android smartphones, the internal and external. Internal memory is the default storage for system apps, settings, and operating system. All your data such as photos, videos, messages and more will be saved in the internal memory by default which tends to clog up the device and make it slow.

This is where you can insert an external memory or SD card to free up some space in the internal memory and transfer them to the external and will not compromise the performance of the Android phone or tablet. Upon inserting an external memory or SD card, you will then need to change the location of the files so the device will know which data belongs to which memory.

When data loss happens in the internal memory of Android devices, there are programs that are dedicated to retrieving the files. The most common files being recovered from the internal memory is the pictures.

The Science behind

Whenever we delete a photo, it is not totally deleted from the internal memory but rather becomes unreadable and hidden. If there are no other photos to store in the same memory, it will stay there unless overwritten. This is why it is strongly advised that when you discover that you deleted pictures, stop using the device and start looking for a program that can do the job for you.
