    Hi Android HTC One SV users

    Has this happened to you? If so how did you get back your screenshots?

    I cut screenshots from my HTC One SV today using a USB linked to my Windows laptop

    Whilst pasting to my desktop, I noticed the screenshot images were not the images as on my mobile but of a flower (refer to attached pic) but continued cutting and pasting

    When I attempted to view them on my desktop I got this message 'Windows Photo Viewer can't display this picture because the file is empty'

    Even trying to open with other programs, I get a similar message

    I could kick myself for not copying and pasting! I'm sure they would still be there

    I've learnt my lesson that cutting and pasting is not the way

    Next, I thought if I cut and paste them back to my mobile they would be on mobile phone again. Sadly no. Instead I'm only getting warning images where the screenshot images use to be (refer to attached pic)

    My question is, is it possible that the screenshots are still in the phone somewhere and so could be retrieved somehow? (Preferably a free method)

    Any suggestion appreciated!

    They are either in your SD card under dcim or in your internal storage under dcim.
