[Solved] How to Recover Snapchat Photos/Videos

By FonePaw | Dec 11 , 2017

This guide is about how to recover Snapchat pictures and videos from iPhone and Android. If you are looking for a guide on Snapchat photo recovery, this article will certainly be helpful!


Different from conventional photo sharing apps, Snapchat doesn't store all photos or videos that you've shared with your friends. When you share a photo on Snapchat, you can decide how long the receiver can view it within the range from 1 second to 10 seconds. Once receiver opens the image or video, it will be deleted when the time is up.


Extra Tips:


What if you want to view the funny picture again? What if you want to save the picture on your phone and share it on Facebook or Twitter? How can we access or recover the expired photos in Snapchat? In this post, I will show you possible ways to recover deleted Snapchat photos or videos on both Android and iPhone.



Part1: Restore Snapchat Photos/Videos on Android

Part2: Retrieve Snapchat Photos/Videos on iPhone


Part1: Recover Snapchat Photos/Video on Android


On my mind, the only way we can save Snapchat photos is to quickly take a screenshot with our Android phone. But most of the time, I either forget to do it or I think it is too inconvenient. After a few hours of research, I found that the delete Snapchat photos can be found in a particular folder on our Android phone. All received files end in .nomedia, an extension that makes them 'invisible'.


Here below is where the Snapchat data is stored. So open your Android phone, you can find the disappeared photos and recover Snapchat photos.


Note: Remember that the more you use your phone the more likely it is that data location will be used and your Snapchat pictures or video will be lost for good.


Snapchat Folder


If you cannot find the folder on your Android phone, you can try some Data Recovery tools for Snapchat that are normally used to recover deleted Snapchat history. FonePaw Android Data Recovery is one of them.


STEP 1. Download the free trial version of the Snapchat photo recovery program on your computer.

STEP 2. Connect your Android phone to the computer and enable USB debugging on your phone.


Connect Android to PC


STEP 3. When your phone is connected, mark on "Gallery" or "Picture library". Then click "Next". The program will begin to find out all photos on your phone.


Select Snapchat Photos


STEP 4. Grant the Snapchat Recovery program to scan your phone.

STEP 5. Preview all the scanned out data and find if there any Snapchat memories or stories. Finally, click "Recover" to recover Snapchat images.

Part2: Recover Snapchat Photos/Video on iPhone


There is no way that can be used to recover Snapchat photos on iPhone without using apps or taking a screenshot. So I humbly recommend you the FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery program. Normally, this program can recover delete WhatsApp conversation and other app data (Snapchat for example) on iPhone X/8/7/SE/6s/6/5s.


But the situations can be different if you want to recover the Snapchat photo one month ago. As we mentioned before, the more frequently you use your iPhone after Snapchat photos you want to save disappeared, the less chance you can get it back. That’s because the new data generated on your phone will overwrite the temporary file.


Anyway, you can take FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery to have a try and see if the program can find your Snapchat pictures.


STEP 1. Free download the trial version of FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery on your computer and connect iPhone to the computer.

STEP 2. When your iPhone is detected, click "Start Scan". The program will start to scan all data on your iPhone.

STEP 3. When the scan process ends, click "App Photos"on the left side and see if you can see deleted Snapchats. If YES, click "Recover" to retrieve them. If NO, I suggest you disconnect your iPhone from the computer and try the other two recovery mode – "Recover from iTunes Backup File" and "Recover from iCloud Backup File" and see if you are in good luck.

Well, these are all possible ways I can find to recover deleted Snapchat history from memories or stories. For the two programs I mentioned above, I suggest you give them a try. After all, both of them have the free trial version. However, I cannot guarantee the good result. Know any other working method or app? Let us know in the comments.
