Hide it pro app, lost photosTips

    I've used hide it pro for years & never had an issue like this and I can't get a response to my emails sent to the app creator.

    While trying to transfer files to another device, I was placing several of the albums (as the app informs) onto the SD card... what I didn't realize was the card wasn't in the device so it went into the internal memory. I can see the files names but when you click on them it leads down a dead-end road due to the fact they are "HID".

    I've uninstalled & re-installed...
    I need to know how to find the items & place them back into vault.
    I'm not talking about porn or such, I'm talking major family events... the birth of my children, ect. Please lead me in some sort of direction to resolve this issue!!
    Both devices are s3's.

    Total Commander or ES File Explorer. The usual way to "hide" pictures is to put a .nomedia file in the folder. If you tell a file manager to show hidden files, you'll see those files and can move them somewhere else, or just delete the "dot" at the beginning of .nomedia.

    Or connect the phone to your computer - it should see the files.

    Thank you, I was able to find all my files with your help. My hide it pro app won't allow me to change the vault location back to its old location so that I can view the files through the app. Do i or can I just change the .fr to .jpg or is there an easier solution to my problem?

    I have the same problem with hide it pro. Where did you find the files? I have been looking everywhere in the folders but have no idea how the files are hidden or encrypted.

    Download ES File Explorer. Then read the following.

    thanks for the reply. I installed the es file explorer app and set to show hidden files. I still can't see the location of my hide it pro files. The developers website blog says all hide it pro files are under a folder named programdata but I can't see anything under here either. Please elaborate more on where you found your files.

    Go into your Hide It Pro app and check your vault location. That should give you some direction to where the programdata file is which is where your hidden files will be.. UNLESS you've changed your vault location. It's in your phone so you should be able to search for the file.

    If you are having trouble searching for it on your phone, then try connecting it to your computer to conduct a search
