    I have a perfectly working solution. Its kind of copy- paste and uninstall - install operations that you need to do. I recovered all my files. If anybody is interested I will tell. I dont want to waste my energy by explaining the whole process if nobody needs now.

    FYI - The 5.0 upgrade deletes or renders other files inaccessible- The camera on my Samsung 4 now mysteriously takes pictures as if all is well, but when you go back to review your gallery, they are just unknown icons - no picture is accessible. Anything prior to the upgrade is viewable. Anything post-upgrade is hosed....

    Most disconcerting, I did not get a warning of what was about to happen or I would MOST ASSUREDLY have backed up my phone - DLK1 A-Hole!!!!!!

    Anyone successful in downgrading?

    I created a folder in my Gallery and moved some photos from my whatsapp images and screenshots to this folder I created. After the software upgrade, i can't view the photos in this folder, its all showing 'permission denied'. And i tried to switch on and off my phone and the whole folder in now missing... what do i do, those photos are very important to me

    I see that you are mentioning private mode. Can you tell me how to turn it on? As I've heard that is special mode that not everyone can see my files, is that right?

    I'm having same issue from the Marshmallow 6.0 version updating to the Nougat 7.0.
    Had some pictures in a private folder on a SD card, can't access any of them.
    Have rolled back to previous version marshmallow and still no luck.
    The folder still shows up but is empty when I click on it.

    What was your solution from prior update?

    The folder that they were in is visible on my phone andPC but the files inside are gone. Just an empty folder.

    Even tried enabling and disabling private mode on both firmwares and adding new pictures to private mode to try and refresh the album. Still empty.

    Go to settings go down to lock screen and security. Go down to the 13th one you will see private mode. Hit it type in your old password go to gallery it should be there. Ill take a gander at the nudes now 😂😂😂🤣🤣jkjk

    This worked for me (after losing private mode after 8 update) ;

    You need to add the Private icon to your settings/toggles menu -

    Swipe down from top, extend the toggles menu by it dragging down.

    Press the 3 dots in the top right corner. Press Button Order.

    Scroll to the bottom, swipe to the next page if you have too anf find the Private Mode icon. Drag the icon to the top with your current toggles. Job done. Now use your private folder like old times
