    First, check if their physical footprint still exists. Go to Settings > General > Usage and check the amount of storage available, do you notice that there is a lot of used storage ? You can also check it through iTunes, which might show used memory labeled as Other.


    I lost all my pictures and videos after jailbreaking my phone, yet iTunes showed that they are still taking physical memory (labeled as Other - iTunes did not recognise my pics or vids anymore). This means they cannot be viewed via Camera Roll but they are still stored in the phone.


    To fix that, download iFunBox ( ) and use it to locate and extract the images from the phone (no need for iTunes to access the phone). I managed to extract all my photos from the phone to an external USB, which accumulated to over 20GB of photos and videos.




    Use this method and you should recover your photos and videos with no previous backup. If your phone shows that there is a lot of empty storage, then your photos might have actually been completely removed.


    can you remember the folder location?


    my "other" folder was 8+gb the other day. but i found the culprit and deleted the app folder. which reduced it back to 1.54gb. but today, its gone back up to 2.3g


    i need to find the location of the the "other" folder to recover a few pics and to empty it.

    Actually, you don’t need to back up your iPhone 5 directly, every time you sync with iTunes, iTunes will create a backup of your iPhone.


    If you have enabled iCloud, every time, your iPhone is connected to Wifi and a power source, and the screen is locked, iCloud will automatically backup your photos.


    Other than restoring from iTunes or iCloud backup, there are still at least 3 other solutions for you to get your photos back, see the tutorial: how to recover deleted photos from iPhone.

    Janston, thanks very much for your kind reminder. I successfully found previous backup files created automatically by iTunes. The next step, I think, I should do is to find a tool to extract the files from the backup files.

    Depends on the last time you did a sync / backup. If you had the photos and synced, deleted photos then did a restore from the most recent backup, they should be there again. If you don't, you can restore the photos using two methods, recover deleted photos from iPhone via iTunes or restore directly from iPhone device using UFUSoft Fonelab,which goes fast scanning and loading. In less than half minute, all the files in my iphone 5 were scanned. Then i can find the lost data under certain category. And what's lost and what's existed are classified too.

    What is DFU?


    and can you send me a step by step mode as when I connect my Iphone to the Computer?


    I have also not backed up from last stream. I took some photos today and accidently deleted them, they were not uploaded via WIFI as there was no access, can you please help?

    The person you're replying to is a spammer who last posted a year ago. They were no help then and will certainly be of no help now.


    If you did not back up your pictures, unfortunately, they are gone.

    I Deleted some photos and then auto synced so I thought I lost them all. Tried different software to luck. Today I was looking through my Facebook photos and if you have an account and are signed in on your phone it automatically syncs your pics. They aren't shared unless you mark them for it.  om your home page select the more option (has 3 bars under it) then you can see your photos, shared albums, and synced photos.  Just click the pic, click the 3 dots on bottom left side, select save pic and it will be in your camera roll!!!

    Fireebok Data Recovery for iPhone is the only one to support recovery from iPhone 5.

    I use the advanced recovery function, recover most of deleted photos two months ago. Though they are not all, but it is amazing.

    I know that I can restore from iTunes  backup or iCloud backup, but I make a backup last time is last year.

    As for me, I would use photo recovery apps. Because I dislike cumbersome process to *******, such as from iTunes or iCloud. If you want fast way, go and search some iphone photo recovery tool.

    If you are talking about photos that were taken with the iPhone, then you might be able to restore some of them from a previous backup.  If there aren't any in any previous backups, then I'm afraid you are out of luck. 


    If these were photos that were synced to your iPhone, they should still be on your computer.

    Before a sync or restore, I believe that iTunes will create a backup of your phone's contents (unless you manually cancel this backup). The backup will contain the photos and videos that were on the phone.


    You can check if a backup was created by doing the following:


    Launch iTunes
    iTunes > Preferences > Devices
    See if there is an entry with the date of the restore.
    If a backup exists, you can recover your data with one of two methods:


    Restore your phone using that backup; or
    Use an application such as iPhone Backup Extractorto extract the images out of the backup file.
