    Issue with pics getting disappeared from gallery

    Hello,

    I'm facing a weird issue with my Samsung Galaxy S3

    The photos taken through the primary camera seem to disappear from the gallery.
    I'm not sure what the exact issue, it happened with me twice, though i've not deleted any stuff.

    Earlier my storage location for the photos was internal phone memory and suddenly one day figured out that all the pics from the gallery have disappeared.
    There was enough storage left on the phone memory.

    Searched a lot on the internet but couldn't find any information about this problem.
    One of my friends suggested doing the factory reset and then trying the synch to get all the data back.
    But it did not help I lost all my data

    Then I changed the storage location of the pics from Phone's internal storage to external SD card.

    And the same thing happened again, all the pics have been disappeared from the gallery.
    The pics where there on the SD card for more than two days and then suddenly disappeared.

    Not sure if there's any setting which is causing the same.

    Can someone please help me!!

    The details of my device are:


    Model number: GT-I9300
    Andriod Version 4.0.4
    Baseband Version: I9300XXLH1
    Kernel version: 3.0.15-928452-user

    Thanks & Regards,
    Satya.

    Welcome to the Forum. I am not sure why you lost your pics but try Quickpic from the Play Store. It's a better app and is free.

    Hey Jeff,

    Thanks but it wasn't of any help. Is there any setting which uploads the pics directly to the google account ???
    Also it only happens with the pics in the DCIM folder. I've installed dumpster just in case if anything is accidentally deleted it would go there first.
    But thats empty too... Also checked most of the hidden folders, no go

    Google + has the option to automatically upload your pictures but check into the details. I remember something about it changing some of the properties when it does but can't remember the details. The Dropbox app will also automatically upload your pictures to your account. This feature was also added in one of the last Facebook updates too.

    That’s weird. So those pictures are not in your DCIM folder either? It does sound like something is syncing them off of your phone.
    Do you have any media apps that you use (Facebook or the like)? Have you checked under applications for something you didn't load on your phone maybe?
    Only other thing I can think of would be to check your Google account permissions/privileges and verify all is good there
    By the way,

    Agreed... One of your apps is syncing the photos somewhere then deleting them from the phone afterwards.... I forget what app it was but I remember seeing that it was set as the default way of doing things....
