It is one of the moments with more tension when using the mobile. You may be flipping through your photos and suddenly accidentally delete some. If you thought that once they were deleted they couldn’t be recovered, you couldn’t be more wrong.
In the gallery of any Xiaomi mobile, once you delete one (or several) photos, they go to the trasha hidden ‘album’ from which they can be recovered, and whose content will disappear after a certain time.
You have 30 days to recover your photos
If you have accidentally deleted some photos when that was not your intention, we have good news. In the Xiaomi gallery, the trash can where the deleted photos go is fully accessible and you have 30 days to redeem them.
But first, let’s access the trash can:
- Open the gallery of your Xiaomi mobile. At the top, you will see that you are in the ‘Photos’ category, you can click on ‘Albums’ or swipe from right to left.
- You will see that your photos will have been sorted by albumsyou will have those of the camera, screenshots, those of WhatsApp or other albums that you have created manually.
- Below, you have several options for organizing your photos, including ‘Paper bin’. That’s where the images you’ve deleted will be.
As you can see, once inside the trash there is a message that tells you that those photos will stay there for 30 days, after which they will be completely removed from the device. Each image shows the number of days you have left to go to the realm of lost photos.
In addition to being able to delete everything permanently (which would be good if we’re short on space), you can select the images you want to recover and restore them, returning them to their original album.
If you delete them and leave them there for a month, when the one that makes 31 arrives you will no longer find them, but you can extend the time that take time to be eliminated with Xiaomi Cloud, choosing one of the three payment programs, where you have 60, 90 or 180 days of conservation.
Stop worrying about the images that you have deleted from the gallery, since you will always have the option to recover them accessing the trash of your Xiaomi at any time.
