Hello all, I am wondering how to get the funny GIFs back to my Samsung Galaxy phone. I deleted them by mistake. Is it possible to recover it back after accident deletion? Thanks in advance!

The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a bitmap image format that was developed by US-based software writer Steve Wihite while working at the internet service provider CompuServe and has come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web since then due to its wide support and portability.

GIF files are now supported by Android like Samsung Galaxy.

However accident happens every day, various reasons can cause data loss. For instant: mistaken deletion, factory reset, flashing ROM, formatting, system upgrade and so on.

Fortunately, when you delete a file including GIF, it is just temporarily removed to a Recycle Bin and can be restored back. But the deleted files are not visible, so you need an Android data recovery tool to help you bring them back to reality. FoneLab Android Data Recovery is capable of doing that.
