Today I’m going to show you the easiest ways on how to recover lost data on Android (With or without root) and iPhone.
One thing about most Andriod devices is that sometimes you can mistakenly delete all your files on your Android phone. Be it photos, audio MP3 files, apps you have installed, text messages, emails. It all happens at one point in time. Fortunately, all sorts of Andriod files can be recovered even when deleted as long as you follow the below steps!
One thing you should know about an Andriod device is that whenever you delete a file, it does not actually get deleted instantly but rather it creates an unused space on your SD card or phone memory for new files to be occupied. Once a new file occupied the unused spot then the files are permanently deleted from your Andriod device. This is why when it comes to file recovery on an Andriod device, timing is very crucial. DO NOT at any point move or save any file or even switch off your device.
How To Recover Lost Data On Andriod Device (USing PC)
Time is always key in this tutorial: don’t save or switch off your Andriod phone else you cant recover them. You have to first search for your backups that’s if you have one (Like Google automatic Backup) or otherwise follow these steps on how to recover your lost files. Turn off your internet connection so that no automatic updates are available before things go south.
A PC program is the best way to recover deleted files that were saved on an SD card. There are many of them online and your success varies but we highly recommend EaseUS. Many users report recovering their files successfully and we have also been able to recover some of the data we have deleted for our test. The software is easy to use and offers a free version.
1st method: Easy Steps (Requires phone root!!)
Connect your Andriod device to your computer or laptop using a USB cable. Next, open EaseUS. The program has a rather self-explanatory wizard interface.
1) First, the EaseUS app will detect your device and ask for permission to turn on USB debugging on your Android device, click on allow. EaseUs will now have access to analyze all your data files.
2) Next, you’ll be asked to root your Andriod device in other to restore all lost data.
3) If your device is already rooted you are Ok it won’t show you that, instead the Easeus application will start to scan your device data such as photos, contacts, music, etc. Pls make sure that your device has enough battery power.
4) The interface shows all the data files (messages, contacts, audio, videos gallery, and documents) you have on your device. Mark files that are deleted and click on recover. You can click on the “only display deleted items” to only see deleted data and save a lot of time.
5) Make sure you recover your lost data on your PC and not on your device!! If you recover them on your device and you still got some lost file to recover, they’ll be replaced and deleted permanently by the ones you recovered earlier.
2nd method: Easy steps (Doesn’t require phone root)
Download Recuva => HERE
1) Connect your SD card to your PC using an adapter. Next, open the Recuva app. The program has a self-explanatory interface.
2) Next, you will be asked what type of file you are trying to recover eg photos, videos, text files, etc. If you are using the professional version, you can also create and recover a disk image first.
2) Next, you’ll be asked where the lost data should be looked for. Simply select and start the process from your microSD.
3) If or when the program finds your files, the green or red dot next to it will show the file(s), which will let you know the state at which they can get restored.
Check first whether they can be used on your PC, as they can get corrupt!
You can run advanced mode for the deep scan.
It should be noted that Recuva can not detect Android devices as removable drives. It is therefore unlikely that you will use this software to restore deleted files from the internal memory of your device.
However, there is still hope if your phone is rooted. You can install a mass storage enabler application in that case. Recuva can detect and scan your phone after it has been enabled.
