I noticed today that all my photos disappeared from my android. My camera folder has disappeared from my gallery. All my photos are gone. Has anyone else had this happened? Please Help!

Gallery pictures disappear could be disastrous and desperate. And it does happen in our daily life. But the reasons why photos disappeared from your Android gallery could vary, such as OS upgrading, mistakenly deleting, phone jailbreak, or the OS malfunction, etc. However, no matter what kind of situation you have in, we can give you the practical method to get them back.

Method 1. How to Fix All My Photos Disappeared from My Android Gallery by Clearing the Cache

We must know that as long as the Android OS is running, there will be some cache files generated. And sometimes, we cannot view the photos in the gallery just because of these caches leading to  Android OS  temporarily corrupted or sudden malfunction. The way to fix it is quite simple, and we just need to clear the caches. And here are the detailed steps.

Note: Since there are so many Android models, the steps may vary.

1. Go to the Settings;

2. Choose the Application Management option;

3. After you are in Application Management, scroll the screen down to find the Gallery and tap on it.

4. Now force the shutdown of the gallery and then choose Clear Cache option.

5. Return to the main screen, close all background apps, restart your smartphone, and then you will find the disappeared images in the gallery again.

Method 2. How to Fix All My Photos Disappeared from My Android Gallery by Deleting the .nomedia File

If the cache clearing method does not work for you, you can try this a little more complex solution. This way is all about a file named .nomedia in your phone memory. If your photos are stored in this file, the gallery tends to skip to scan what it has. And so you cannot find the pictures you want in your gallery. The detailed steps to fix it is: Go to the file manager and find the folder containing .nomedia file > When you have found the file, rename the file to any name you like > Then restart the device and here you should find your missing pictures in your Android gallery again.

Method 3. How to Fix All My Photos Disappeared from My Android from the Backup

If the two methods above do not help you find your missing pictures, technically, the pictures may have been removed for some factors. In such a situation, the first method comes to your mind is to check if you have backed up your photos before, like Samsung cloud, Google Drive, or somewhere else. If you do, luckily, you can find your photos there. Check now.

Method 4. How to Fix All My Photos Disappeared from My Android with Android Recovery

If all of those methods above cannot help you get back your missing gallery photos, there is a high possibility that the photos have been deleted.
