Step by step to recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S3
Step 1: Connect Samsung Galaxy S3 to the computer

Step 2: Enable USB debugging before scanning your phone
If your Samsung device isn’t detected by the program, you need to enable USB debugging (or enable USB Storage Mode) on your phone. Check what Android OS is your Samsung and then choose the right way to open USB debugging follow below steps:
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < Click “Applications” < Click“Development” < Check “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check“USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < Click “About Phone” < Tap“Build number” for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”
Note: If you still get this window and the USB debugging has been enabled, please try to disable it and reset it again.
Step 3. Scan your Samsung Galaxy S3 for deleted files
When your device is connected and detected by the program, click “Start”button in the screen below to start analyzing your Samsung Galaxy S3.
Note: Before doing this, make sure that your phone battery is more than 20% charged, so that you can get a smooth scan
If your device is not rooted before, the program will directly scan it after the analysis.
Note: For the device that Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android doesn’t support currently, it may lead you to set USB Mass Storage on your device to scan photos, videos, music and documents, or to root your device by yourself (if there is no USB Mass Storage option). All rooted Android devices are supported well. You can choose to do it or not by yourself.
If you rooted your device before, you need to allow the program Superuser authorization on the screen of your device. Just click “Allow” when the message pops out on your device’s home screen. Then back to your computer, and click “Start” on the program’s screen to scan your device.
Note: For some devices, they may ask you to click “Allow” more than one time on your device’s homescreen. It’s normal. Just do it if it askes. It doesn’t matter. Just click it until it doesn’t appear again or the program has begun its real scan.
Do not disconnect your device during the scan, or the scan will fail.
