    I was taking pics today but couldn't see the screen because of the sun glare. The camera snap sound was working and I took 6 snaps. Anyway after 7 pics I saw "memory full" on the screen. I got home and none of the 6 pics are on my gallery or any other photo files.

    I got a whatsapp msg with 2 pics and it let me download them - so phone couldn't have been totally full?

    I plugged my phone into my PC where I could see more files including ''thumnails'' and there are the 6 extra pics there - but they are blank and when I try to open they say ''file empty'' and they have 0 bytes. But the phone obviously knows 6 pics were taken.

    Can I retrieve these pics? The were a really special moment and I'm gutted.
