    Default Camera Pictures deleted after Installing Kitkat

    Last night I took a picture of my dinner and sent it to a friend. The next morning the KitKat update was available.

    I downloaded and installed it without issue, but then later in the day I checked my pictures and there was only one left in my Camera Gallery, the picture from the night before of my dinner.

    Has anyone else lost their Camera Gallery pictures after updating to KitKat? Would kind of like them back, but assuming it's too late now.

    I've tried restarting and even used a file browser to check the gallery folder itself and they're just not there.

    Might wait a bit or even restart. I recall once losing my Gallery but then it came back.

    I've restarted and checked the folder manually with a file browser and they're not there anymore. I hope waiting solves it. Such an odd issue to happen out of nowhere.

    This happened to me before and I had to use astro file manager to view the photos. Once I did they reappeared in regular album

    My photos were all still there.

    Do yourself a favor going forward - turn on Google+, Dropbox, Box, SugarSync, etc., automatic photo upload.

    Did you ask your friend if he ate it? KitKat for desert probably too. UNFRIEND him/her

    Checked with Astro, was one of the first things I did, the files aren't there either. Checked "show hidden files" as well, just in case.

    This kind of happened to me. I'm writing about it on another post at:
    Can't Open Images on SD Card?

    Mine seems to be related to the fact that my images were being stored on an external SD card, and that KK altered how that process works - this potentially corrupted them somehow. They show as being there, but maybe with a type of "broken" icon, but many with the normal thumbnail. But nothing after the KK install will pull up at all when I want to see them more than a thumb.

    I'm trying a couple things and hopefully they'll work. Will let you know!

    Data recovery software is a great application to recover lost files, photo from your camera, Using this tool you can get back all photo from you camera. I would like to suggest try this advance application. Digital Camera Recovery Tool to Recover Deleted Photos from Corrupted Data
