Re: how to recover deleted picture

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Simple...from the backup you performed prior to deleting the picture. If you have no backup, then you should consider doing so regularly -- there are two kinds of computing device users, those who have lost data and those who will. Backups, like insurance, are neither a reactive nor an optional activity.

Good luck!

You can recover it from data recovery or backup tool. If you are using phone than use sync option it will be help to recover deleted files.


Some time very hard to recover file or picture, if permanently deleted.

Building on @sdgardne's response, if the picture was saved to your device memory the only way to recover the image would be restoring a backup file. So if you dont already, I'd recommend making a backup strategy, e.g, backup once a week etc. 


Building on @Techvedic's response, using recovery software to try and recover a image might be possible provided the image was saved to a microsd card. Recovering content from BlackBerry device memory is not possible though 

Got a question about a BlackBerry Product or Service?

If so use the BlackBerry Contact Catalog so we can better assist > http://blck.by/2huFaGF
