Missing pictures from the Vault application

I had almost 30 photos in my PhotoVault application. I have selected 8 or 10 photos to unvault them. After unvaulting, I wasn't able to find those photos in my gallery or anywhere else. Later, I uninstalled PhotoVault from my phone and after some time I re-installed the program but I wasn't able to get those 30 photos back.

Please help me regarding this problem as soon as possible. I really want those pictures back. I tried a procedure for recovery with TestDisk but it didn't work. It stated that no files were found. Please help me on this!

The first thing you need to do is to unvault the stored photos because once you remove the application, you will also lose everything that was stored in the vault. The files had attributed a key so they are recognized when the program was installed. But once you have removed the application, the old key is not recognized because the software applies another key to files. In other words, I believe your files are lost forever as you will not be able to decrypt them.
