    I accidentally erased all the photos from my D1. Is there a way to retrieve them?

    Uhmm they should be synced to google picasa on the net. Look there. Go to google.com then select photos in the drop down menu.

    I didn't know this either. Thanks for this tidbit. Unfortunately, I hardly sync to Google :) so my photos arent there. I just let Lookout sync them to their server..

    I do believe you need to set up a picasa account though, not sure. I do cause it lets me view all my photos on my phone through the gallery app. Its all part of the google cloud based computing.

    first, stop using the SD card. Turn your phone off and remove it. You need to do this so that you do not write over the "deleted" files.

    Then google SD recovery software. One of my old windows phones ****ed up and I lost all my pictures. I was able to use some recovery software(it was free!) and I got all the photos back.

    They were named very oddly but at least I got them back!

    The way the file systems work is they keep information on where files are and when you "delete" a file, it often(unless you have some encryption software) just deletes the data in the table of where the file is. The file is still there though! Even though this is possible it was a bit of work to get it done. I have been syncing my photos with google now to avoid any future problems :)

    I found a topic on the AndroidForums about this. Supposedly, you have to sync your gmail account and you also have to go into the Gallery and set things to SHARE there as well. Still trying to get things working here.
