Retrieving photos?

I've taken lots of photos with my BB over the years and have deleted a lot over that period to. I noticed today that when I looked in my pictures, a lot of the ones I've 'deleted' actually showed up in the folder - or at least the thumbnail did. When I tried to open it properly I got the message 'unable to display file'. Is there any way I can get these pics back? Clearly they're in the phones system somewhere. I've done the media - explore - media card - pictures - show hidden etc but it still doesn't let me access them fully. Any help appreciated.

Hey mizfiesta,

Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


If the files have been deleted you cannot restore the files and the thumbnails should not be displaying if the file was deleted. Try reinserting the media card to see if the thumbnails disappear.
