Hi Susan! I'd love to help if I can. What happened that makes you think you lost all of your photos?

when i hit the photo icon on my phone they are no longer there and they were there 30 minutes ago
Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

Hmmm...I see. In your Photos app, click the Albums icon at the bottom, and then look for a "folder" there called RECENTLY DELETED. Click into that. Are your photos there?

If so, click SELECT in the upper-right corner, and then tap on each photo you'd like to restore. Once you've selected them all, tap RESTORE in the lower-right corner.

If they're not in the RECENTLY DELETED folder, please let me know and we'll look elsewhere!

Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the information. Have you already powered your iPhone off and then back on?

Do your photos still appear in iCloud? Please visit icloud.com, and login there with your Apple ID. Click the link for Photos. Please let me know what you find there!

Sorry for not having clarified. Yes, you will want to access icloud.com on the internet.

Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

I think you'll be okay! Tell it to setup iCloud on the device, and sign in with your Apple ID.

if i do the secure connect with you can you do this?? and anything else that you might think of? - i think i reset the phone when i thought i was sending the photos to my computer
Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

I'm afraid we're unable to remotely connect to your iPhone (that service works on PCs only). However, I could remotely connect to your computer and see if we can find your Photos hiding somewhere there, if you'd like?

all i did was plug my phone into my computer. then it asked if i wanted to "reset" i think was the word - i think i did that. i have been in germant for the past month - and i dont think i had i could on - although i sure got a lot of data charges.....
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
sorry for my spelling - i dont think I cloud was on.... i was in Germany
Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

The "reset" message you saw -- did it appear on your computer or on your iPhone?

i dont know - but my phone "started over" - like it said hello and new set up...
just now last years germany pictures just popped up on my computer
i looked in deleted just now and there are some pictures from 2016 germany that say 29 days left under them? is that helpful?
Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

Yes, that gives us some hope that we can retrieve these! I've sent you an offer for remote assistance, as I think I'll best be able to help that way. However, we can continue working together via chat instead if you'd rather.

Mac Support Specialist: Eric Ewing, IT Pro replied 1 year ago

Sure! Let's get connected and I'll help you. Let's not worry about the fees or anything else (I've lost photos before myself, and I know this is stressful...so this will be at no extra charge).

What Customers are Saying:

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
