If you are wondering about how to retrieve your photos backed-up in Google Drive, I have come up with a solution for you. If you delete a photo from your phone once backed, and you want it back on your phone, you need to download it from 'Google Drive' back.
Follow a few steps to retrieve your photos:
- Open 'Google Drive'.
- Go to 'Google Photos' viewed from the main menu and select the photos to be retrieved.
- You can select multiple photos and then click the 'Download' option.
- To download single photo, go to the 'Photos App',view the photo you want to download and select the 'Download' button from 'Menu'.
In both the cases your photos would be downloaded to the 'Downloads' folder. To view them in the 'Gallery' you need to move them to the 'DCIM' folder.
