Accidentally deleted Whatsapp Images folder

    A family member accidentally deleted her whole Whatsapp Images folder instead of just one pic in the folder.

    Is there any way to recover?

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled, restored whatever was stored on the phone (Moto G3) but all that restored was messages/chats.

    Thanks in advance.


    Did you have a backup. It recently asked to set a backup to email.

    I'd backed up to iCloud then yes

    Have they got google photo app, if so may be backed up to the cloud.



    An android 'quirk' is that it creates thumbnails of all the images on both the internal and external SD cards. There is a hidden folder called ".thumbnails" under internal/DCIM which whilst not the full size as the originals, should at least be a helping start.
