Hello! Can someone please help me? I have a Samsung Galaxy S5.. and the Google Assistant that I hate.. (even though my phone tells me that only 36% of the memory is used), it told me that I didn't have much memory and asked me to "free up space" and told me that things are backed up, even though when I checked.. the only things that show they are "synced and backed up"- are my phone logs and texts, which are the things I need the least. I am unable to even see the Gallery app to be able to click it to added to the sync and backup list.

On my phone, anytime you want to attach a picture, screenshot, pics transferred from an old phone (like lots of these), BASICALLY ANY TYPE OF PIC or SCREENSHOT OR ANYTHING FROM GALLERY.. because the Photo app is not an option when you click the ATTACH button. 

So.. it deleted a BUNCH of photos from the GALLERY, and they are still in photos or in trash,  (and after finding the link to trash earlier, I selected 61 photos and clicked the downward-pointing arrow and then click download, so they would go to the gallery, and nothing happened. I checked my drive and gallery and they run out there. 

I accidentally lost the links to trash and other places those can go- so if someone can PLEASE POST THOSE LINKS- THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL!

So I need to know how to get these back from trash and from wherever they went when I did the free up space through the assistant for the first time on a Samsung Galaxy S5, and it has to be the directions for this phone, if someone can help me to get them back, like undo the free up space, because that was just a couple of days ago and it was the first time I ever did it and will be the last. And I also need to know, how to move photos from the from the Photos app over to the GALLERY- urgently! 

THOSE PHOTOS ARE EVERYTHING TO ME! 

Can someone please direct me, because some of the directions I have seen tell you to use options my phone does not have. 
Can anyone help? 
Is there any way to UNDO A FREE UP SPACE ACTION that REMOVED ITEMS from the GALLERY? 
Photos in the gallery are the ONLY ONES THAT I CAN ATTACH or UPLOAD to FACEBOOK, EMAIL, OR TEXT. The photos in the photo app are not an option when I click the attach button in Gmail or in a text message, Etc. Whenever I click attach to add a screenshot, downloaded picture, regular pitcher, Etc. to a text or email, I don't have an option to click the photo app- ONLY THE GALLERY APP IS AN OPTION.. and most of those pictures are gone. 

PLEASE HELP IF ANYONE CAN! 

I will even post my email address, if someone can tell me how to do this.. preferably how to just undo a free up space action without having to find the pictures in the trash which I don't know how to do it again, and select them one at a time and download them, because I tried to do 61 at one time that way, and nothing happened. How to contact me - desireeharper2011@gmail.com

Many thanks to anyone that can help! Sorry for the long message but it looks like my situation is different from everyone else's who attach their photos from the photos app, instead of the gallery being the only option to pick from. 
Thank you! Desiree

There is no Google here - just some other users who try to help or to report bugs.  

First: send an angry feedback straight to Google via the 3 small lines of the Googe Photos app about two points: that warning comes much to early when there still is enough free space (the app only checks internal memory - no additional sd-card). 
Secondly ask that the most recent 30 (or 60) days are retained (like in trash) for use in apps that can't connect to Google. 

It not clear to me of you open the trash under the 3 small lines and you select a bunch of pictures and then choose Restore, if they selected will come back in Gallery again.  
But I don't think that Free-up space fills that trash. 

Secondly: you can't expect that all apps you seem to need can connect to Google: that is just caused by poor Facebook-oriented design. 
For some like Gmail you need to work the other way around: select on Photos, then choose Share and then select the Gmail-app. Maybe this tric also works for some other apps. 
Remark: Gmail on computer can connect to Google Photos directly and Google Hangouts also. 

Downloading large amounts from the web always is a problem on mobile stuff just because of design limitations which are not present on a computer. So from https://photos.google.com you easily can select and download the most recent 500 and then copy these to the Downloads-folder on mobile via an usb-cable (that folder should not be included in syncing to Google). There you are. 

You also can stop using Free-up space, but then you are responsible yourself to clean-up the oldest every month. Nevertheless, downloading to computer every week always is a good idea.
