I used the Android "Gallery" app and accidentally deleted all my photos.

Can I plug my memory stick into Ubuntu, and DD recover the disk, and somehow recover the files?

You can use Photorec to recover the images. Run with no arguments and follow instructions, it should guide you step by step

sudo photorec

I would suggest following the guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery#Imaging_a_damaged_device.2C_filesystem_or_drive to image the card before just in case

EDIT: Also before you go through the trouble try plugging the sd card into the computer and checking through all the folders (look at hidden too) I seem to remember a trash folder, Android might have put them there

  • Waiting for parent to replug the usb so I can try it, sorry its taking a while will let you know how it goes. For now my battle plan is: (Parent computer is Windows so: 1. install vbox 2. map the usb stick of the droid to vbox 3. boot up ubuntu live cd, and dd from the stick to a flat file 4. photorec or testdisk on the flat file to try and recover the files!) – SabinReneFigaro Apr 14 '15 at 23:37
