How to Recover Deleted Images from HTC Phone
"I intend to recover deleted images from HTC phone. When I was in the settings clearing up and forced stopping applications, all the photos are gone. Can anyone please help or advise me on how to get them back? The thing that makes me think they still locate on the phone is because I have contacts that use the images for their profile pictures and they still appear."
Yes. They are not wiped but just simply removed. Namely, they still locate in your HTC phone. You can retrieve them with FonePaw Android Data Recovery.
FonePaw Android Data Recovery can help you recover your lost images on HTC.

Simple Way to Recover Lost Images from HTC Smartphone
Step 1. Connect HTC One to PC
First of all, launch FonePaw Android Data Recovery. Connect your HTC phone to the computer with the USB cable. Then turn on the USB debugging on HTC: Go to "Settings > About > Software information > More". Tap "Build number" for 7 times. Then go back to "Settings > Developer options > USB debugging".
Step 2. Select File Types to Scan and Recover
Highlight "Gallery" or "Picture Library" in the menu. Note that in Gallery, you can find images that are captured by the phone, transferred from other devices, and screenshot by the phone itself. While in Picture Library, you can recover cache images.
Step 3. Give Privilege to Android
Go to your HTC phone. Select "Allow/Grant/Authorize" in the pop-up note. This will give permission to the program to enter your phone. When this step is done, FonePaw software will start to scan data.
Step 4. Scan, Preview and Retrieve Lost Images from HTC Phone
When scan is proceeding, please wait with patience. After that, click "Gallery" and "Picture Library" at the left column and preview data in details. With the demo version, you can preview the thumbnails. When you register, you can view them in full size. After that, mark the ones you want and click "Recover".
Files will be stored in your PC instead of the Android phone, sorted in the folders named PNG and JPG. You need to manually transfer them to your HTC. By the way, don't miss the general guide on how to recover deleted files from Android.
