How to Recover Deleted Videos/Photos/Messages from Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10 Plus / S10e?

If you have deleted any photos or videos on your device and it is now more than 30 days, it will be difficult for you to locate them again because they will be deleted permanently on your phone. However, there is still another method that you can use to recover those files. You will need the following…

  • Your Samsung Galaxy S10
  • A computer
  • Backup files (optional)
  • Android data recovery software (optional)
  • Access to the Internet

Method 1: Restore from Backups

You can easily restore your photos or videos if you have the backup of the media files using Samsung Cloud or Samsung Smart Switch. 

Samsung Cloud allows you to back up and restore your device content anytime if you accidentally delete a file on your phone. You can even restore files and sync data on other devices when you are logged into your Samsung account.

Samsung Switch on the other hand is an app that makes it easy to sync data between your device and your computer. You can use the app to back up your media files (pictures, videos, songs, etc.) and restore them anytime.

Method 2: Android Data Recovery Software

There is some data recovery software that you can use to restore not just your photos and videos but also SMS messages, Contacts, and other types of data from Galaxy devices. It even allows you to preview the found media items making it easy for you to restore them.


We recommend using  EaseUS MobiSaver for Android as it’s one of the best data recovery tools at the moment. To use it is very simple. Just do the following.

  • Connect your Samsung Galaxy S10e device to a computer.
  • Get EaseUS MobiSaver and install it on your computer.
  • Follow the instruction until it scans your Samsung phone. Make sure to read the instruction texts carefully.
  • Preview and recover the media files it finds

    waar is de prullenbak voor gewiste bestanden op de S10 plus?
    Ik vond de prullenbak van de gallerij, maar niet van bestanden.
    Mijn S10+ is nieuw gekocht in juni 2023 en heeft de oorspronkelijke android 9 versie
