With all of the amazing features available on Android, like a high definition camera, apps for everything, lighting fast processing power, and so on, there is one thing that can be less than convenient: the difficulty of finding downloaded files.
It's almost as if your smartphone's downloads disappear just as soon as the transfer of data has been completed.
In fact, unless you know where to look, on some phones that's effectively what happens. So let's tell you where to look for downloads on your Android phone. It's a little place called the app drawer.
1. Open the Android app drawer by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. You can also access the app drawer by tapping its icon on the home screen.
2. Tap My Files (or File Manager ).
3. Inside the My Files app, tap Downloads .
You should now be able to see all of your downloads.

Everyone knows the pain of accidentally deleting a file that they didn’t mean to. It’s a heart-sinking moment when you realize what you’ve done. All is not lost, though, as there may be a way to retrieve your lost files, even if you didn’t have an Android cloud backup set up first. Depending on the nature of the file, how thoroughly you deleted it, and how lucky you are, a few Android data recovery methods may work. Here are some of the best techniques for retrieving lost files.
To retrieve lost files on Android, you can use a few different methods to recover your lost files, from simply checking the recycle bin, checking your cloud backups, using recovery apps for PC or Android, and even contacting the developer. However, it's important to remember that there is no guarantee of retrieving lost Android files.
JUMP TO KEY SECTIONS
Check your recycle bin.
Try android data recovery apps, android data recovery services, contact the developer.
Before you do anything else, the most important thing to know about Android data recovery is that you should stop using your phone as soon as possible. This will give you the best chance of getting your file back if it is lost.
When you delete a file, the data isn’t actually deleted from your device’s flash memory . Android just marks the space where the information is stored as “empty.” That means you won’t find the file, and Android will treat it as missing. It also means the slots that once contained that data are marked as ready to write over, should new files need space. Only when this happens, does the data really become lost, and you can’t get it back.
This is why it is so important that you stop using your phone and stop taking new photos or installing new apps. We would highly recommend that you put your phone in airplane mode. This way, you will prevent it from downloading emails, WhatsApp photos, and updates.
To check the recycle bin, you need to return to the top level on the Pictures or Albums tab and tap the menu in the top right. This will open up a menu that includes a Recycle Bin option. Select it, and you’ll be taken to a folder with all of your deleted photos .
Other apps also have this option, especially popular file manager apps . Whichever app you used to delete the file, check thoroughly to see if it has a recycle bin.
Google Photos also has a bin that stores photos for 60 days, but it works a little bit differently by backing up your photos to Google Drive. This means even if you completely deleted a photo via another app, it may still be salvageable via Google Photos. If you don’t see your photo or video here, check the bin from the hamburger menu in the top left.
If you still don’t have any luck, then try visiting photos.google.com . Check the Trash folder from the hamburger menu too.
Even if you remove your photos from the bin in Google Photos, there is still a chance these changes haven’t yet been reflected in Google Drive. So check quickly here, too. Something you may not know about Google Drive is you can ask it to back up any folder on your device. Just open Photos–>Settings–>Back up and sync–>Back up device folders .
Of course, many other apps such as Gmail will also store your files on the cloud by default.
If it’s a WhatsApp photo you accidentally deleted, there are several options to try and get those photos back. First, check the backup built into WhatsApp itself. Head to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup . You should see some information telling you when the last backup was carried out.
If the most recent backup was before you deleted the files you need, uninstall WhatsApp and reinstall it from the Play Store. This will then give you the option to restore your old chats and media. You’ll also see the option to backup photos to Google Drive, so try looking here too if that option is enabled.
But what if you accidentally wrote over your last backup? Even then, there is still hope. That’s because WhatsApp will keep several backup files on your device telling it which photos to retrieve from the servers.
Use the file browser of your choice and head to WhatsApp–>Databases . Here, you will see several files with names like msgstore-2022-01-05.crypt12 .
Find the most recent one and rename it to msgstore-1997.crypt12 (or whatever you like). Now WhatsApp will defer to the second most recent backup file when retrieving your photos.
You can also look in the WhatsApp media folder in your Google Photos library to see if your photos are there. WhatsApp stores copies of the photos you send, as well as the ones you receive. So if you sent someone a photo but then deleted it from your phone’s camera folder, there may still be a copy in the WhatsApp Media folder.
If neither of these steps works, then you’ll need to start trying third-party solutions. Android data recovery apps have a slim chance of retrieving lost data. They work by looking at where data has been stored even when marked as deleted by Android.
This is where it becomes important that you stop using your phone as much as possible to avoid corrupting the data that you’re trying to recover. It also means you’re in a bit of a catch-22, though, as installing a third-party data recovery app on your smartphone might cause you to override the files you’re trying to save.
To prevent this problem, you should always try using a desktop computer recovery app first. We recommend Recuva as a good place to start. Install this app, and the wizard will then take you through several steps to try and recover your lost files. This method of Android data recovery works a little better for files stored on memory cards instead of files that were stored internally.
Depending on how desperate and wealthy you are, another option may be to use a data recovery service. These services offer to recover data from any device using various methods.
For example, one company called OnTrack promises “if data can be stored on it, we can recover it” and boasts a 90% success rate. These companies need to collect your device in person and will likely use a combination of the strategies listed here, along with the aforementioned file restoration processes.
The good news is you will only be charged if they assess that the file is recoverable. The only issue is they are a lot more expensive than other options on this list, so you need to think long and hard about whether you need those files. Data recovery services are great for people struggling to extract files from broken phones too.
That’s because developers will manage (or at least have access to) the servers that contain cloud backups of files. Not only that, but they may also know of some sneaky backups their apps make by default. Either way, there’s a slim chance they will be able to retrieve the lost files from your account or provide directions to help you do so yourself.
Unfortunately, there is never a guarantee to retrieve lost Android files. With a bit of luck and determination, though, there’s at least a reasonable chance.
But we want to end with a word of caution — losing files is a highly frustrating and emotional experience. When we’re frustrated and emotional, we can sometimes make rash decisions and do things we usually wouldn’t. So if you are thinking about spending hundreds of dollars on file restoration software that likely won’t work, or you have wasted hours trying to recover work that only took you half an hour to create in the first place, maybe it’s time to get some perspective.
Any work you try to recreate will come quicker (and probably better) the second time around. And you’ll still have memories to help make up for photos you might have lost. Just don’t drive yourself mad over it.
Yes, some data can be recovered depending on the app in question. Many Android gallery apps, for example, send deleted items to the recycle bin for 30 days before permanently deleting them.
To recover lost data, you can try looking for any automatic cloud backups your phone may have made in the prior days or using a data recovery tool like Recuva.
Android is the world’s most powerful mobile operating system developed by Google. It is not necessary for a normal person to know all the features of Android, nor is it possible. With every software update, new features are added to Android, so we do not know about its hidden features. If you have handed your unlock phone to someone and now you are interested in knowing what activities he has done on the smartphone then you are in the right place.

While the iPhone 14 Pro Max topped the list, the Galaxy S23 Ultra sits in 6th position.
While we have already crossed the first half of 2023 and seen several smartphones released during the period, recent iPhones from Apple and Galaxy phones from Samsung have topped the list of global top 10 most shipped smartphones (for H1, 2023), reveals Market researcher Omdia (via SamMobile ).
The list doesn't include any other significant brands besides these two tech giants. Interestingly, Apple's iPhone 14 Pro Max , iPhone 14 Pro , and iPhone 14 (in 2022) took the top three rankings with 26.5 million, 21 million, and 16.5 million global shipments, respectively. Meanwhile, Samsung's Galaxy S23 Ultra launched early this year, sitting at the 6th position in the listing with 9.6 million shipments.

Apart from the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the other S23 series phones didn't make the list; however, Samsung's one of the low-cost phones had surpassed even the S23 Ultra's shipments by a significant margin.
The Galaxy A14 , released early this year, apparently moved 12.4 million units. Internally, the other top Samsung phones that share the list include mid-range smartphones , including the Galaxy A14 5G, Galaxy A54 5G , and Galaxy A34 5G.
It is sad to see no other brands making up the list so far. Comparatively, last year's list for the first half of 2022 also included Xiaomi. That said, time and again, Samsung's budget phones have proven to be the most shipped globally, aside from Galaxy S series phones.

As SamMobile points out, the listing proves that the Galaxy S23 Ultra turned out to be quite successful for Samsung. Meanwhile, the two-year-old iPhone 13 (which topped the H1 2022 list) and the iPhone 11 from 2019 are also included on this year's list. These are notably older phones, while Samsung's models were all released this year.

The U.S. is still weeks away from getting new Covid booster shots, even as more people are not only becoming infected with Covid, but getting sick enough to be hospitalized.
The most recent week-to-week data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show a 21.6% increase in hospital stays related to Covid. The increase is far below what the nation has previously endured, however. The current level of Covid hospitalizations is a third of what it was a year ago.
There are a few new virus variants that scientists are paying attention to because they appear to be changing in ways that might make the virus more contagious. It's not known whether the boosters will be as effective against those variants.
Despite the uptick in Covid, there is no talk of reinstating mask mandates this fall, the CDC told NBC News.
The updated Covid vaccine booster is expected to be cleared by the FDA ahead of a CDC vaccine advisory panel, which is scheduled to meet on Sept. 12 to vote on whether to recommend the updated vaccines.
Some doctors want the boosters faster.
"What are they waiting for? They need to step up their game now, and get the booster out ASAP to the public," said Dr. Hugh Cassiere, director of critical care services at South Shore University Hospital, part of Northwell Health in New York.
Dr. Michelle Taylor, director of the Shelby County Health Department in Tennessee, said people in her area are paying attention to the rise in Covid.
"When I go out into the community and I talk to people, all they want to know is when we're rolling it out," Taylor said, referring to the new Covid boosters.
Officials maintain that they are working fast enough and carefully enough to ensure that the mid-September rollout of the boosters will be effective.
"Our goal is to release and recommend the vaccine so that it can coincide as much as possible with the peak of the season," Dr. Nirav Shah, CDC's principal deputy director, said in an interview.
The peak in Covid spread, Shah and others guess, may occur in November or December.
"Theoretically, if you vaccinate a lot of people too early, and their immunity wanes even by a couple of percentage points, the peak of the season could have far more significant consequences."
"There's an art to it, as well as a science," Shah said.
Even if the first shots are given as soon as CDC Director Dr. Mandy Cohen signs off on them, it could be an additional two weeks for people to develop full protection.
The timeline doesn't sit well with Cassiere, who worries that a combination of kids back in school, workers back in the office and Jewish holiday gatherings in mid-September will lead to additional increases in viral activity.
"This is the perfect setup for a huge spike that will lead right into the winter," he said.
Covid booster shots were rolled out earlier last year, around Labor Day, in an attempt to curb surging cases of the omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 . Those vaccines were released before they were tested in humans.
This year is different. Covid cases are significantly lower, and the shots must go through additional testing and scrutiny to be fully licensed.
The Food and Drug Administration is currently working with vaccine manufacturers to "ensure the updated vaccines meet the agency's rigorous standards for safety, effectiveness and quality," an FDA official said during a phone briefing Thursday. The officials spoke on the condition that their names not be used.
It is expected that the FDA will greenlight the boosters before Sept. 12, because the CDC's vaccine committee, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, or ACIP, can only meet after the FDA gives its OK.
"Our intention," one official said on the call Thursday, "is to have the ACIP meeting in as close as possible succession to FDA action as possible."
CDC's Shah added that the vast majority of Americans are heading into this next Covid season with some level of immunity, either from prior infection, prior vaccines or both.
"That vaccine that you've got on board is still offering protection," Shah said. "It's not that the vaccine has been vanquished from your system."
Dr. Julie Morita, executive vice president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and former head of the Chicago Department of Public Health, agreed that the nation is in a "much different place than we were previously," and encouraged Americans to get the vaccine whenever it is eventually released.
"These vaccines will help prevent serious disease," Morita said. "I'm hopeful that when the vaccines are available, people will take full advantage of them."
The boosters will target omicron subvariants, which continue to morph in ways that, presumably, make the virus more contagious. EG.5 , nicknamed "Eris," is now the predominant subvariant that officials are monitoring.
And the subvariant BA.2.86 has some experts concerned because of its unusually large number of mutations.
How will those changes affect the boosters?
"It's too early to know for sure," a federal public health official said on Thursday's call, "but I think we feel comfortable in saying that it's likely that the vaccine will help protect against severe outcomes."
Moderna, one of the Covid vaccine makers, earlier this month said that preliminary clinical trial data showed the updated booster seemed to work against omicron subvariants.
BA.2.86 has been detected in several countries, including the U.S. But spread remains extremely low — for now. If the subvariant does increase in the coming weeks, the timing of our boosters "could end up being perfect," said Dr. Kavita Patel, an NBC News medical contributor. "That's the game all of us are playing."

The drugstore chain is preparing a chapter 11 filing within weeks and doesn’t have an agreement with opioid plaintiffs, people familiar with its plans said, rite aid faces lawsuits alleging it contributed to the opioid epidemic..
Rite Aid is preparing to file for bankruptcy in coming weeks to address mass federal and state lawsuits the drugstore chain is facing over its alleged role in the sale of opioids, according to people familiar with the company’s plans.
The chapter 11 filing would cover Rite Aid’s more than $3.3 billion debt load and pending legal allegations that it oversupplied prescription painkillers, the people said. Philadelphia-based Rite Aid hasn’t agreed on a settlement with federal, state government and private opioid plaintiffs to resolve those opioid liabilities in a potential chapter 11 and is currently planning to treat them as general unsecured claims, they said.
A representative for Rite Aid didn’t respond to a request for comment. Its restructuring counsel at law firm Kirkland & Ellis also didn’t respond.
Bankruptcy news, analysis and insights from WSJ's global team of reporters and editors.
Unsecured claims rank behind a company’s collateralized debt in bankruptcy and share in the amounts left over after secured claims are paid in full. The terms offered to Rite Aid’s opioid-related claimants in a potential chapter 11 could change, the people said.
Rite Aid faces more than a thousand federal lawsuits that were consolidated into a multidistrict litigation in Ohio. The company also faces a significant number of similar cases pending in state courts that allege it contributed to the opioid epidemic, as well as a civil lawsuit by the Justice Department that alleges the company dispensed controlled substances in violation of the False Claims Act and Controlled Substances Act.
Rite Aid has asked a court to dismiss the department’s lawsuit and denied the allegations that it filled unlawful prescriptions for controlled substances. A bankruptcy filing would put those lawsuits on hold and open a path for Rite Aid to resolve them in a single forum.
Rite Aid is expected to join pharmaceutical manufacturers Purdue Pharma, Mallinckrodt and Endo International as companies bankrupted by opioid litigation. Purdue, Mallinckrodt and Endo each reached settlements of their opioid claims in bankruptcy, worth an aggregate total of more than $8 billion, that allocated more to opioid plaintiffs than to other unsecured creditors.
Much of that money, however, hasn’t been paid as the companies work through legal and financial challenges using chapter 11. Purdue’s $6 billion settlement with members of the Sackler family who own the company has been put on hold by the Supreme Court, which is reviewing whether the chapter 11 plan is legally flawed . Mallinckrodt promised $1.7 billion to opioid plaintiffs when it restructured in chapter 11 last year, but is now headed toward a repeat bankruptcy that would leave roughly $1 billion of that pledge unpaid. Endo also is facing government objections to its plan to pay $450 million to state governments and $119 million to private plaintiffs over time.
Rite Aid from 2015 to 2018 tried unsuccessfully to merge with Walgreens Boots Alliance and later Albertsons , in efforts to improve its capital position and enhance its pharmacy footprint . It has warned for years of not having sufficient cash flow to service its debt and owed over $3.3 billion to lenders and bondholders as of June, according to securities filings.
The company’s cash has dwindled recently. Its revenue declined 6% in the last quarterly period ended June 3 from the comparable period last year, while its net loss nearly tripled to $307 million, according to a securities filing. Rite Aid’s cash and cash equivalents shrank to $136 million, down from $157 million in March.
The company’s stock price fell 51% Friday to 71 cents a share.
