Thank you for the question. Were the pictures deleted the same day they were taken? If not, you may want to check to see when the last backup was taken. You can do this by going to Settings -> iCloud -> Storage and Backup (at the bottom of the screen), then check to see if "iCloud Backup" is turned on. If it is, scroll down further and check the date/time of the "Last Backup" (under the Back Up Now button). If the backup is from a time that contained the photos, you can restore it. Otherwise, there is no way to recover if the photos were deleted.

iCloud backup was not turned on. Does this mean that the iPad can delete all images from my disc because it was still plugged into the iPad? I didn't want the disc images deleted, only the ones on iPad.

Expert:  Techie_Ben replied 2 years ago.
No, not having iCloud backup is unrelated to the contents of the disc being deleted. If the photos on the disc were deleted however, there is no way to restore from a backup since the contents of the card was never backed up. Sorry the result is not what you were hoping in this case. As a last resort, you can try using card recovery software to see what contents can be recovered (if any). You can download a free trial here. I wish you luck!

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
