Step 1: I have downloaded the regular version, and it is called “non-rooted” from the official Google Play. You have two options “basic photo scan” and “full scan,” but you can use the basic photo scan on the non-rooted Android phone.

I have tapped on the “basic photo scan.”

Step 2: The scanning will begin on your smartphone, and it takes a lot of time to complete the scanning.

Step 3: DiskDigger does not make you wait until the end of the scanning, and you can preview, and recover the files without any issues. Yes, you can recover in the middle of the scanning, and it is available because if you found the photos & images you are looking for, then you can recover it right away.

Step 4: First, tap on any photo, and you can select multiple photos to recover. Then, you have to tap on the recover, and you have a pop-up on your screen providing you with three options.

  1. You can save the photos to your cloud storage (Google Drive & Dropbox,) and email.
  2. You can save the files on the local storage like Internal memory, and SD card. But, you have to locate it later on.
  3. You can upload the files on the FTP server like your website, or portal.

I have selected local storage > SD card.

Step 5: Now, you have to SD card or Internal memory.

Step 6: You have to scroll to find the right folder, or you can create a new folder to save the photos.

Step 7: I have an empty folder ready to accept the Images & Photos in the storage.

Step 8: The Photos and Images saved to the destination folder, and you can locate it in your Internal smartphone storage or SD card.

It’s that simple.


There are many advanced Windows 10 programs that allow you to start a deep scan to recover the lost or deleted files.
