    So I was on my way back from a place where I have no connection, and I was editing a bunch of my pictures in the meantime.

    I had 3 folders with 50+ pictures each (one for the built-in studio, one for an eraser tool, and Pixlr), but now I can't find them when I got back.

    I've tried a file recovery app, tried running an antivirus, tried other solutions for threads closest to my situation (including checking in the MyFiles).

    None of my other folders were affected. I'm using a Galaxy S5 active, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

    Welcome to Android Central! Directories created by 3rd party apps are often nested in the app's own directory, and not on the main user directory. Have you used the file manager app to search for the app's own directory? It might be in the /data or /Android directory.

    I've checked both of these and more but still can't find them. The folders for the apps themselves still exist but were all empty (until I added new pictures that I've made).

    Were they all save to Internal Storage or an SD card? The phone needs to be rooted in order to recover deleted files--but if they were deleted from the SD card, rooting isn't necessary. See this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ted-files.html

    They were saved on internal storage, but frankly I'd rather not root my phone, and it would be easier to just recreate/redownload the pictures (they were mostly memes). Thanks for your help

    Ok. If you're not already doing so, I would suggest turning on Google Photos Backup, which can also backup images in other directories of your choosing.
