    What system did you use to backup your photos? Hopefully Google photos as it is very easy to download them back on to your phone. Good luck.

    I have Google photos and Samsung. Update happened over night. Nothing was backed up.

    If you had backup and sync set to on in Google photos you should be able to access them from any device by logging into Google photos.

    So, you are saying all of the photos are gone forever... right?

    No, if you haven't backed them up on Google photos or any other cloud based system then the next step is to recover them from your SD card if you were saving them there, remove the SD card and use a PC and some recovery software to get them back of the card. They will still be on the card but hidden, that's why you need recovery software.

    Perfect... is there a recovery tool that I can use on my phone? I don't have a PC with me.

    I am not aware of any but have a look in Google play store. One thing to note this only applies providing the card was formatted as external storage.

    How are you looking for the photos? Use a file manager app and look directly in the /DCIM/Camera directory. Do you see any photo files there?
