After taking photos with smartphones or digital cameras, we would like to transfer them to computers for the sake of storage and viewing. However, photo loss problems are what we should pay attention to. They are attributed to many reasons. And surprisingly, the most common one is our mistaken operations instead of viruses or other factors. Many important photos are deleted by accident.
