    I backed up my phone to a different computer (sold) 2 years ago (samsung S4) which had a picture on it which was my background.

    Now i have a note 8 which i have backed up a few times. My wallpaper/background photo is still the same but i want to find it to share it - NOT change it!

    Where can i find it in my phone - its not in my gallery and it came frpm a backup 2 computers ago.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! Is this a custom wallpaper that you created from your own image, or is it one that came with the phone? From what I understand, when you set a custom image as a wallpaper, that image gets saved to a protected system directory (which the user can't access with a file manager app unless the phone is rooted). If you delete the original image from the user-accessible directory, then you probably can't access the remaining image file yourself.
