Recover Lost Photos and Videos on HTC Evo 4G?
All of my photos and videos that I took with the phone have been deleted. I even checked in the DCIM file when I connected the phone to my computer. Does anyone know if there is a way to recover lost files on a smartphone (particularly an EVO) in a similar fashion as you would if you wanted to recover lost or deleted files on your desktop or laptop? Any help would be great. There are some pictures and one video that I would like to have back.
