Recover iPod Touch photos with Enigma Recovery

One of the most loved functions of the iPod Touch is its Camera, which is a great tool to take convenient photos of friends and family when you’re on the go. These priceless memories are irreplaceable, and accidentally deleting photos can be very upsetting, especially if you think you won’t be able to recover them.

Luckily, there are some options available if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation. When you delete a photo from your iPod Touch, it isn’t deleted straight away from your device, but is instead moved to the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder on your device.

This should be your first port of call when you have accidentally deleted a photo, as it will show all deleted photos from the last 30 days, giving you the option to restore a photo or multiple photos back to your main device photo folders.

If you are unable to find the photos in this folder, then you may be concerned that the situation is more serious and that your priceless photos are gone forever. For times like these, it is best to turn to solutions such as Enigma Recovery software, a tool that can recover deleted photos from an iTunes or iCloud backup file if you have one available from before you deleted the photos from your device.

The software can also be used to retrieve existing photos and transfer photos to your PC or Mac computer.

How to Recover Photos From Your iPod Touch

The camera roll on your iPod Touch is likely filled with dozens of irreplaceable photos, capturing memories with your family and friends, and as such is one of the most upsetting types of data that you can lose or accidentally delete from your device. Fortunately there are solutions available to recover accidentally deleted photos from your iPod Touch.

Understanding the importance of photos to their users, Apple has created a quick solution for those of you who have deleted photos accidentally. If you are using iOS 8 or higher, then the first thing you should do after you have deleted a photo that you want to recover, is visit the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder on your device or use our data recovery software to view and transfer these photos. This folder will keep all deleted photos and videos for a period of 30 days, after which it is removed from your device.

If however, you have deleted photos from this ‘Recently Deleted Folder’ or the 30 day time period has passed, then it may be more tricky to recover your photos. If you have either an iTunes or iCloud backup file available, then you can use our software to recover photos from these files.
