    I just recently bought a pixel and have been really enjoying it so far. I am still tinkering with some of the settings and decided to turn the backup setting off in the Google Photos app.

    Once that was turned off I was messing around taking some photos and then deleting them shortly after. Once they were deleted, I checked the trash bin option in the app and saw the deleted photos. It made me wonder where they were stored. So I was digging around the file explorer of the phone and could not find them anywhere.

    Does anyone know where deleted photos are stored when they are in the device trash bin?

    Welcome to Android Central. Android's file and folder structure are based on unix, you won't find those files using a file manager. And you wouldn't have access to them anyway

    Depending on the app that is implementing the "trash" folder, it is often located under the folder
    /Android/data/
    under a folder based on the app's name.
