This article is about “Recover Deleted Photos From Android.” DiskDigger is a convenient app to recover deleted files. It is Simple to use and even free too. Its main advantage is that it can perform a scan on any of old Android Smartphone since Android 2.2 (froyo.) And the other one is it doesn’t require root permission to carry out a “Basic Photo Scan.”

However, you must root your Android Mobile to recover videos, documents, music and other types of files besides Images. If your phone is rooted, then the free version can recover images and videos only. If you wish to recover documents, music and other types of the files, then you should use pro version of DiskDigger app.

Also, I had found a little disadvantage in DiskDigger app when I scan my phone that it will show an image more than one time in the scanned result thus it seems to be little difficult to scroll down recovered images.
