I have purchased a Lumia 535 a week ago, and yesterday I was going through an option called Lumia Storyteller. Once I created a story based on the images, I deleted the images from Storyteller but unfortunately all my photos and videos from the Gallery are deleted too.

(Note : I Have not deleted photos from main folder, I have deleted only from Storyteller).

Is there any way to restore the photos and videos?

  • Have you looked in your OneDrive account as your photos, etc should be backed up there? Mar 25, 2015 at 12:18
  • Thank you Thomas and Neil, One drive backup was off so thier was no backup. Now I have turned on to send backup.

Photos in Storyteller are the same as those in your gallery - just displayed differently. So if you delete them in one app they'll be missing in the other one as well.

Check your OneDrive if your phone made a backup of your images there. Also if your pictures were saved on a microSD card you might be able to restore them using tools like Recuva.

Otherwise I'm afraid you might be out of luck.


Oh! Bad Luck.... Go to Settings->Backup and make your options. Storyteller is not different than our gallery.

I guess One Drive is ON by default for gallery items may be on your phone when you brought it.
