Hi all,


Hopefully someone can help with this.


I have an iPad2 that i have accidentally deleted a photo from. It has never been backed up with iTunes or iCloud or any other type of backup so essentially, the files that are on this iPad only exist on this iPad. The iPad is never even connected to a computer.


I have tried numerous software such as EaseUS MobiSaver 3.1, Tenorshare ipad data recovery and Wondershare but nothing seems to work so far.


Does anyone know of a way to retrieve a deleted file on the iPad using only the iPad itself (any app perhaps) or has anyone used any software for a Windows PC (have no access to a MAC) that you confirmed retrieved deleted photos?


Thanks for any help you can give.



iPad 2, iOS 7

    Sorry, but it is gone. There is no "trash" folder on an iPad that you can restore from. That is why you need to backup your iPad at least once a week. Transfer pictures to a computer as soon as possible to keep them safe.

    Thank you for your reply kb1951. The programs i listed above - do you believe these are of no use and cannot access what we are led to believe is buffer space essentially for deleted data which can be access (with the right tools)? There is quite a charge for these pieces of software - that is what led me to believe that it may be possible.
