After upgrading via FOTA, hidden photos disappear, what is the problem?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

 If you change the settings options of My files, you are able

 to check the hidden images again.


1. Select My Files in Samsung folder.

2. Select Menu button to go to settings.

3. Select Settings.

4. Select the Show hidden files option to retrieve hidden images.



After changing settings of My files, all hidden images

are present in device storage (/storage/emulated/0/.hide/island/)

which can be navigated from My Files.
