    I just found out that a lot of my pictures disappeared from the Download folder of my Galaxy S3 (running Android 4.3). The pictures that disappeared were all pictures that I saved from MMS I received.

    Files from other folders do not seem to be missing.

    I tried some things : restarting the phone, removing the battery, browsing the folder through my PC, ... None of the missing files came back. Also, I am not using an external SD card.

    Anybody knows of this issue in common and if it has been documented? Any idea on how to retrieve the lost files?

    Have you also tried exploring the Downloads folder using a file manager app like ES File Explorer?

    When you open the Downloads app, is there an option to show older downloaded files? On some phones, older downloads will be automatically hidden, unless you choose the option to show them.
