This answer was rated:

Have a Lenovo tablet, model Model 60043, serial S/N HB077VLS(62). Had more than a hundred photos in the gallery. Google told me they are changing the way I store my photos and the day the google App was applied I could recover the photos at all.
I did not delete them as I am asked to confirm to delete but cannot find them anywhere.
Hope you can help.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.I am sorry to hear that you are facing problem with your stored photos in your tab has disappeared.Please tell me the location you have saved and how did it disappear.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Photos were in my gallery. That's where they automatically went after being taken. I had no backup for saving them. Google said they were changing the way my photos were saved and that the existing ones should not be affected. As soon as the google app "photos" appeared on my tablet my other photos disappeared.

Although my expert did her best, ***** ***** entirely MY FAULT that she could not recover some photos.

Whilst in communication she helped me set up a new account and was very patient with me considering I'm not exactly what one would call computer literate.

Thank you!!
