    While on vacation last week I took this really cool picture of my daughter. I then made it my lock screen wallpaper. Sometime the next day, I went back to view the pictures that I had taken and the phone could not recognize that a SD card was in place. I has just viewed my pictures on there hours before.

    Long story short, I was able to recover some, but not all of the pictures. Unfortunately the one that I wanted wasn't recoverable. However, that picture is my lock screen wallpaper. How can I find that file location and save it again...in a safe place?

    By the way, that's the 4th time this phone has "eaten" a SD card (new one installed each time). That's very frustrating.

    Thanks in advance for letting me know where or how I can recover the lock screen photo that is currently in use on my phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! I looked in another forum and found an answer saying that the lockscreen wallpapers are saved to /data/data/com.sec.android.app.themechooser/files. But this is a system directory, so you'd need to root the phone first before being able to access it.
