hi,
I have a Samsung S6 Edge SM-G925T that got unlocked and worked OK for a few weeks and then after a few weeks it went into a bricked state when it couldn't boot : " library... due to FRP lock".
I used Samsung SmartSwitch to update the image to Android 6.0.1 to get the phone to work again but lost all the pictures and contacts after the update!

I rooted my phone with SuperSu and Kingroot succesfully and tried several trial freeware to try to recover the pics but none are working.
Please advise.
thanks.

thanks.
I did try DiskDigger mentioned in the above threads but it couldn't find any pictures nor videos taken with the camera. It might have found the ones that were cached as a result of running a browser or facebook. I tried Testdisk and Photorec but both couldn't detect the USB Mass storage enabled for S6 edge.

Also in my case, the files( pics.. videos...) didn't vanish as a result of my deletion but rather by Samsung Smartswitch( or dumbswitch) repartitioning the phone to update the Android image.
which is making harder to recover any files.
