    Hi,
    I like to download lots of pictures from tumblr and save them onto my phone for later viewing.
    But a couple weeks before, I noticed that a lot of the photos were missing from the gallery.
    I first saw them when I saw trying to clean up some space with an app called Clean Master.
    it says it's in a folder called .thumbnails but I can't find it anywhere.
    I've searched online to see if other people have encountered this problem, but none were very helpful. (I tried quickpic but nothing really changed)

    Here are some photos....

    I can't view photos in gallery but I can still see them through gallery thumbnails-screenshot_2014-01-08-16-06-10-1-.jpg
    These photos aren't anywhere in my gallery.

    Apparent location of the photos
    I can't view photos in gallery but I can still see them through gallery thumbnails-screenshot_2014-01-08-16-15-54-1-.jpg
    is there a download button somewhere?


    To summarize that:
    - some of my tumblr photos are gone and I wish to retrieve them
    - i can still view them but only through an app (clean master)
    - can i access these photos from my phone and place them into the right place?


    Please help if you can. Thank you so much.

    The one time I used Clean Master it deleted many of my files it considered junk, duplicate, unnecessary. I can't remember what the "clean up" name it gave to the files it said could be deleted.

    There were many data files including pictures it deleted. I can't remember if the app offered me to view thew file names. When taking its word and allowed it to delete files there were many, many missing that were NOT junk or duplicates. Looking back on this it was partially my fault for being too trusting. No app is going to be 100% accurate in this kind of task. Better to use a good file manager and take the time to select the files you know are unneeded.
