Hello there last night i try to move my files from my samsung to usb flash drive while using a otg connector and everything looks to work pretty good until i see that some pictures and videos was not moved to the usb flash drive and them i unplug the otg with the drive and when i reconnect it again the folders was empty and because I didn’t know that when you move the files they’re removing from the phone also now i don’t know what do to.. all the pictures and videos are missing from both devices.. is there any way to restore them? Before to unplug it i check them and they was on the usb flash drive.. please They are very important pictures and videos to my family and some of them is passing…😭😭

Copy not cut...
Always backup critical data redundantly to at least 2 hdds that are physically and electronically isolated from each other and the PC.

Is it possible you inadvertently pasted the data to another drive or folder?
Go to the Lexar site and download their image recovery app to scan the flashdrive for recoverable images.
Outlook not so good... sorry. You may get lucky though.

Thank you for you fast reply but it’s possible to be just gone? Even if u delete files they stay.. somewhere. I remember when i backup my pc without to have some backups almost everything was there
I will try the lexar tomorrow when i wake up otherwise I’m gonna die.. if it’s not working

Recovery from an unrooted phone is difficult at best. Don't use the phone if you plan to attempt a recovery. Contact a data recovery specialist if it's unbearable, they may be able to help.
Do Not use the Dr.phone app.
Another member here may have a better plan...

Here's some more ideas.
I've lost entire databases...
