    All the photos in my Gallery has been missing all of a sudden! I am not able to view them in any of the folders! I have not deleted them. It just went missing ! I tried all settings such as show hidden files, restart, clear cache...

    Please advise ASAP.

    I'll assume they are jpeg images. Find a file manager and search your device for all files with a .jpeg file extension. Also check to see if by chance you added a .nomedia file to any folder as the media manager will skip displaying any files in a folder with a .nomedia file in it.

    I was able to see a few of them under .jpg extension. How do i get to display the .nomedia files if any? i searched for a few but when i tried to open them with the photo viewer, it wouldnt show up!

    The .nomedia file is a file that just indicates to the media manager Not to display any media in that folder.

    I'm not understanding why your images are not being displayed, unless that .nomedia file is in the folder your images are in. Very confusing.

    When i search for .nomedia files using filer manager, i get to see quite a lot of them(around 230), but they arent from the DCIM \ Camera folder instead in some other application folders....

    What do i do with these files? delete them?

    Are any of your pics in any of the folders that have a .nomedia file in it? Do not delete the .nomedia files till we are sure it's the problem.

    If you take a new picture with the device does it end up displayed in the gallery?

    Ok, great.

    Go to the application manager and under all find Gallery.

    Force stop
    Clear cache
    Clear data

    Shut down and reboot the device.

    That may clear up the issue.

    As an aside the images that were yours that you did see, what folder (s) were they in?

    I'm curious .....:rolleyes:

    Did the steps, didnt work!

    All the images were stored in the default folder storage\emulated\0\DCIM\Camera\

    Ok, I think the bad news is that they are lost. Have you installed any new stuff over this period of time? Or been connected to the Internet over maybe a suspicious link? It really makes no sense other than the fact that it works now. Have you installed any recent Android updates? I'm grabbing at straws here but we totally understand we checked all possible places
