For anyone that doesn't like following links, there's a couple of things to remember (until you get around to following the links to tutorials):

  1. Act fast. This is the single most important thing to do.

  2. Switch off data and Wi-Fi. Your photos are only lost permanently once they are overwritten, so you want to make sure no downloads or updates happen before you recover your content.

  3. Download a recovery tool. There's plenty of free ones or trial versions available. You might wasn't to follow the link in @John's reply above to get recommendations or to be walked through the recovery process.

  4. Save those photos to your computer, a microUSB stick, burn a CD, print them out...whatever. Now that you have them back, don't lose them.

  5. Stop it from happening again by syncing your photos to the cloud (if you trust it), regularly backing them up to CD or your computer or installing an app that can automatically do this for you.

Not to worry, the pics aren't completely erased until they're overwritten by new data after it's been deleted. You can however make use of third party apps and recover them. Here's how it's done -

Is your file in your micro SD? that is easy to recover. Can your computer read your Motorola ? if it can't then just buy a card reader which is very cheap. plug your SD card to card reader. after your cell phone or the card reader connect to your computer.
And comes to the most Important part. Download a recovery tool. just google recover deleted photos or something, I assume you didn't know there is such a useful tool. I have used Jihosoft before, quite useful, of course you can chose other recovery tool, just chose a nice one and follow the guide to use the tool. you will get your pictures recovered. you pictures is not deleted only if your pictures is not over written. so do stop using the phone if you need to recover.

I am stuck as i have lost data from Internal storage, I am having Moto G first Gen device, recently upgraded to 5.1 lollypop version.

I have tried all software tools that are available so far. All of them require "USB mass storage Mode" But to my badluck, I have recently done an OTA upgrade by motorola to 5.1 lollypop version. THis means my version does not support USB mass storage mode. I will not be able to mount and search for data recovery. My Phone is un-rooted. If i try to root it i my remaining data is anyway get formatted. And i cannot recover the lost data at all. I am stuck. Can anyone help ?

After the pictures and videos are deleted by mistake, you'd better stop using your phone.
Then find a data recovery for Motorola program to help you retrieve the files as soon as possible.

Hope it helps.
