Samsung Cloud

Once enabled, photos and videos in your Gallery will save to Samsung Cloud. Click here for information on syncing your gallery to Samsung Cloud.


The Samsung Cloud Recycle bin stores photos and videos deleted from the Gallery application for 15 days. After this time they are not recoverable. To restore other data, follow the link to Restoring Samsung Cloud data.


The Samsung Cloud Gallery back up is separate from Google Photos back up or Samsung Smart Switch. It's best practice to back up your photos and videos to multiple locations. 


Follow the steps below to learn how to locate the Samsung Cloud Recycle Bin:

1 Find and open the Gallery application
Tap on Gallery
2 Tap on the 3 dot menu button in the top right of the screen and select Settings
Tap the menu button to access Settings
3 Select Cloud Recycle Bin
Select Cloud Recycle Bin
4 Long press an image you want to restore to select it - tap each image individually or tap Select all in the top left to restore everything.
Select Restore in the top right hand side to download the images back to your device
Long press an image you want to restore

Please Note: Some devices may have these following options: Apps  Gallery  Drawer icon (≡)  Settings  Cloud sync  Auto sync "ON".
