I'm not very techy so please bare with me.....
My phone was stolen a few weeks back and stupidly i never had a lock on it so Find my Iphone was switched off straight away (and has never came back on ) and i can only assume the phone was wiped or restored as no one would be interested in my info/apps/phots etc.......
My deverstation is that all my pictures have gone! I never knew that icloud was for just 30 days, i figured it was all backed up (lesson leant i guess!). I have searched the net to see if pictures can be restored but in short i find the anser is no.
I did synch my phone in May. I now can't find any pictures from my phone on my computer. I have hopwever found a load of empty files her:
C:Documents and SettingsMy DocumentsMy PicturesiPod Photo Cache
I would just accept that my photos have gone but the confusing thing is that this file is saying that the folder was last updated just half an hour after i last had my phone. Could this be when they wiped the phone? If so is there any possible way to retrieve these photos????? I'm holding on to a lot of hope here.
Really hope someone can help
Pics taken with the iphone are not part of the sync process at all.
You should have been importing them to your computer regularly as you would with any digital camera.
Your pics are gone. Sorry.
You mentioned you were using iCloud. Did you do any backups via iCloud? Those are done without connecting to your computer.
I did think this was the case to be honest, I was just hoping that i may have missed something. Especially when i saw that the last update on that folder was so close to when I realised that my phone had gone missing. So so many sentimental memories on there. I'm so mad with myself!!!
I connected to iCloud and the last 30 days came through but nothing else.The strange thing is that the photostream on my phone had tonnes more photos on it that what came through to my computer from iCloud. It was the first time i had logged in from a computer though so i had no idea how it worked. I assumed that everything that was on the phones 'photo stream' would stay in the iCloud as i had a similar thing when i was on vodafone a few years back.
I guess i have to take it as a lesson learnt. Its so deverstating as all my babies pictures are on there.
Thank you for your replies.
