In Windows or Mac, if you accidentally delete a photo or file and need it back, just head on to the Recycle bin (or the Trash Can in Mac) and restore it back to its position. An app named Dumpster, in Android, lets you do just that. It adds the recycle bin feature in Android device and is incredibly helpful in some scenarios letting you recover your deleted files.
“Dumpster works just like the recycle bin on your mac, linux or windows desktop computer. Dumpster’s recovery ability is the perfect complementary cloud backup tool (Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive). Completely eliminating the need to constantly backup your data. Dumpster gives you the ability to recover accidently deleted content including images, vids, audio, pdf, zip, mp3, mp4, ppt, doc, avi, mpg, jpg, rar and all common file types.”
