    Welcome to Android Forums, Lucky030!
    How did you delete them? For example, from within a gallery app or file manager, connected to a PC, etc.?

    What app or program did you use? If it's in the Play Store, providing a link to it would be helpful.

    As for those apps claiming they can recover deleted files, I'd stay away from them. At best, they're probably bullshit; at worst they could damage, even brick, your phone.

    Okay, thanks. I have no experience with Samsungs, but don't they offer their own cloud storage? If so, are you sure your files weren't backed up there?

    I know you said they weren't in the cloud, but let's just run down a few things you may not be thinking about. Besides Google Photos with its option to auto-upload, do you have any other accounts, such as Dropbox or Amazon, that may have saved them?

    Have you checked your gallery app for a trashcan? Some apps offer options as to what happens when you 'delete' a file, such as putting it in a holding place for X days before actually deleting it. The trashcan may be obvious, like in the app, or it may be buried somewhere in the file system.

    First check the app to see if there's a trashcan within it, and check it for files. If that fails, then move on to perusing your file system using a file manager. You're looking for anything Samsung-related, then if that fails check other directories. You're basically just looking for anything that may hold those deleted files.

    Post back and let us know your results.
