    I saved the photos on the CF card inside the Galaxy S6, and tried the Photo Recover for Mac to recover the deleted photos from the device, but after the scan, I find some photos are missing. Does that mean the missing photos cannot recovered anymore?

    • Yes, the missing photos are unrecoverable. So, do remember, if you delete photos from your Galaxy S6, stop using your phone, after all, any operation may generate new data, and overwrite the deleted data.

    Can the free trial version recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S6? For I want to test whether the software really works for my S6.

    • Hi, tony. Glad you are interested in our software. But I am sorry to tell you the free trial version does not allow you to recover photos, it can only recover limited text contents like text messages, contacts, etc. You have to purchased the full version if you need to recover deleted photos from Samsung S6. Do not worry if the app fails to restore your pictures, you can ask for refund within 30 days.
