Do the files need to be stored for some time before its backup is created? I've been trying to recover my photos that were unintentionally deleted less than a day before they were taken, however I can't find them anymore. I've rooted my phone for those files but to no avail. :(

It is not difficult to recover deleted data from Android cell, if you are sure that you've saved these data on the inner memory card. Pick out this card and connect it to a computer or laptop. (Never try to save anything else on this memory card in case of data loss.) Download android data recovery software to get back your deleted data. There are numerous card recovery tools online. Preview the recovered data to see whether it is restored rightly. Save the restored pictures on a different drive or places in case of data recovery failure. In the future, you should learn to back up your data well.​om-android.html

No, photo recovery is not possible in android system, what really such recovery apps doing is they shows up photos that are hidden somewhere in folders like "cache" or other folders in intenal memory or sd card. No apps can recover deleted items if they claim they are cheating with users
