I have an Oppo Reno 8 Pro (Android 13).

Since switching from my Huawei phone, the folder with the received and sent images/videos in the internal storage gets cleaned automatically every 3-4 days. As a result all my received and sent media are gone.

I can use an old backup, and that restores images/videos for a while, but after a couple of days they get deleted again.

How do I fix this problem?

  • You might want to check the installed File Managers and Gallery apps, and whether they have a feature to auto-clean storage or media files specifically, regardless if they have been backed up or not. Usually they have a setting to ignore certain folders.
