How to Recover Photos from Facebook:
Let me start this section with a harsh truth: You cannot recover photos from Facebook! Yes, sorry to say, but this is the reality. Facebook does not have any special way for recovering deleted Facebook photos. Also, I would like to clear one thing here that none of the methods explained below can assure 100% recovery. No! So, what do we do? We give our best shot in-order to recover deleted photos on Facebook. How? Proceed to next section.
Ways to recover Deleted Facebook Photos:
I am listing 5 ways which I feel can be useful(or even not) to recover deleted pictures from Facebook:
1. Using Data Recovery softwares:
There can be a chance that you might have stored that photo on your hard disk and then deleted it. Or you captured it on camera or smartphone and directly uploaded it on Facebook. In such situations, you can use data recovery programs like Recuva to scan your drives for any sort of files worth recovering and there is a good chance that Recuva will find deleted Facebook photos.
2. Download personal archive from Facebook:
We can backup our Facebook data by downloading a personal archive from Facebook. To download personal archive, go to Account tab and hit on Account Settings. On this page, you will see: Download a copy of your Facebook data.
Click on it and you will be able to download photos from Facebook. After download is completed, check for your deleted photo if it exists.
Note: The chances of this method to work are very less. But, give it a try! There is no loss. Even if you don’t find your deleted photo, you are backing up your current Live Facebook data on your hard disk to prevent any future problems.
3. Friends and tags:
Did you tag your friends for the deleted photo? Then there is a great chance that they might have a copy on their account. Even if you haven’t, ask your friends if they have luckily saved that photo. Who knows, you might become lucky!
4. Temp folder:
While we are surfing on web, our browser creates temporary files in “Temp” folder. So, it is possible that the deleted photo which you might have viewed once using the browser, might be saved in “Temp” folder. The path to “Temp” may vary with your operating system version. So, simply search for photo extension in your C drive. Extensions could be .jpg, .png, etc.
5. Trying luck with Facebook Help center:
If you are out of luck for all above methods, the only possible way is to contact Facebook Support team. Write to them about the importance of your photo and ask for help.
I hope you can find deleted Facebook photos using one of the above methods. I have tried my level best to help you in retrieving deleted photos from Facebook. I wish you luck!
