    Help! A very important photo has disappeared. I took it as soon as my right after my HTC Evo powered on (was in a hurry to snap the pic) and right when I went to e-mail it, it was gone --- wasn't in the "reel" of photos for me to share.

    I know it was there because it showed up right after, but how can I retrieve it? Any tips? Software? Pretty please?

    Welcome to AF :)

    photos are usually stored in a folder named DCIM on the storage. You can connect your phone via USB to your computer and browse the storage to find the folder and have a look to see if the pic was in there.

    It's probably not deleted but sometimes they take awhile to show up in the "gallery" when browsing on the phone. So if you were looking for it right after you took it, you maybe were just a bit too early. It may show up a bit later :)

    Ack, sorry folks. Didn't see this wasn't a support forum. Anyone care to move it to the right place?
