There are a few tricks on how to know if there are photos available in the recycle bin of a device:

  • Switch from Thumbnail View to Folder View

  • Select Photo Data and DCIM/100 Apple

  • Switch back to Thumbnail View and Choose “Only Selected”

From here you can view the deleted photos, view them in the directory, or switch to Table View.

In Table View, it is possible to sort and see only the photos located in the Trash. On each file, you can scroll to the right to see the metadata about the graphic.

Verify by keyword searching or creating a query to ensure that the information is correct and that the photo is actually deleted and not just hidden.
