    Hi, I'm new. I accidentally deleted a picture on my Hero and am wondering if it can be recovered? Thanks!

    Hmmm, well before I deleted it, I sent it as a text message so I can get to it from the messaging conversation. But when I hit menu my only options are: set as: contact icon, footprints, lock screen or wallpaper or I can get details....might there be a way to recover it from here?

    It's possible depending upon the situation. First thing you need to do is STOP using the card. Any more use of the card will risk overwriting the space the picture resides in. I use photorec a lot in my business and have had good results.

    Here is a guide.

    In that case it might be different. I think there is a folder on the SD card that stores these messages, not sure though and I am not in a position right now that I can check for you.

    Have them send it back to you?

    So I was able to figure it out...in the messaging conversation I had to long touch on the convo, (not the slide show) and I was able to choose "save picture".

    And I had previously tried having it sent back to me, but it came with no image.

    Thank you all for helping!
