      when you connect Xiaomi or Redmi phone to PC via USB, you should be able to access the phone from your file explorer on PC and copy photos and other files from phone to PC.

    When transfer the photos through bluetooth, all the photos are deleted? How to recover it?

    • Matt

      generally speaking, transferring photos via Bluetooth should not delete the original photos, as photos would be copied from one device to another.
      to recover photos and other data from Android powered mobile phones, you can use an Android phone data recovery. For example, you can refer to this guide to retrieve deleted photos from Xiaomi & Redmi phones without backups.
