Being a new /e/ os user with my fairphone and not very knowledgeable about all this stuff, I hope someone can help me.
I have taken many photos with OpenCamera. Then suddenly, when taking new photos, I got a message that it is not able to save the photo. The photos already taken were still visible in Gallery or in TotalCommander. Since today (might have been with the latest /e/ os update), all photos are gone (either in OpenCamera, in Gallery or in TotalCommander). When I connect my phone to my computer (ubuntu) and navigate to the camera folder, I get this: ‘libmtp error:could not get object handles.’
Does anyone have an idea if my photos still exist and how I can access them again?
Since my first post, all photos that were taken from then on, were accessible and everything worked fine. Now, OpenCamera again cannot save new photos. I can still access the old photos in Gallery but cannot find them when connected to my computer (same message: ‘libmtp error:could not get object handles.’). I fear that they will be lost again.
Does anyone have an idea how I can fix the problem and how I might save my photos?
I have it to mimic ‘internal storage’. I suspected also that this is the cause of the problem. Before I reinstall everything and change that to external, I still hope that someone can help me recover my photos…
So when I had this issue, I ordered an OTG drive … I cannot actually remember if I lost much, I think I found a solution within the device - I did not be too quick to reformat the SD card, or I would have lost more!
