It might have happened in our lives often when we mistakenly delete or got our data removed automatically on our Android handset. This data can be photos, songs, videos, or other important private data we keep within our phone. Well, if something like this has happened lately with you, do not worry because I am about to teach you a way by which you can recover removed data on your Android in just a matter of time, regardless of your device being rooted or not. However, patience is the key and you have to keep your phone on and avoid using it while the data is being recovered. So, here are the ways by which you can do it.
How to recover removed data on your Android handset (without ROOT)
First of all, keep your phone on and turn off both Wi-Fi, 3G/4G connections as well as stop automatic updates and avoid using it while recovering data since this has a greater chance to overwrite the deleted data hence you may end up losing it for forever. First, I would like to cover the procedure for un-rooted devices.
After you have reviewed deeply the trash bin of your phone for any possible remains, it is time to connect your Android handset to your PC for the recovery procedure to begin. Second, you need to download a data recovery software to initiate a data recovery process. However, there is a bit of glitch in later versions of Android Ice Cream Sandwich because the Mass Storage Protocol technology is not integrated which enables your memory to show as a flash drive. But I also have a solution for that too, just keep on reading.
If the lost data was located in your phone’s SD Card you need to connect it through an SD Card connector to your PC via USB cable. Now, you can download any software you would like to use to recover removed data on your SD Card. There are some great software’s available such as Dr. Fone, Recuva, Coolmuster and etc. However, an important thing to keep in mind is that your card should either be formatted in NTFS, FAT32, or any other similar format to get recognized by most of the data recovery software’s. However, if the card sports an un-supported format and won’t get recognized, you can copy/paste all the data into some drive partition on your PC and format your SD Card through Windows format and choose either FAT32 or NTFS file system for your card.
Now, after recovering removed data by any software you have used, you should save all the restored data on another drive as opposed to the one from where they got deleted. This is done actually to avoid any kind of hindrance or problem after the restoration is done until you fully recovered everything and disconnected your phone from your PC. Now you can put or copy the recovered data beck onto your memory card and insert it in your phone hence you can now easily access your lost data again.
Recovering Removed Data On Your Android (With Root)
For those who have access to Android’s core system filed, here is the method described below in bullet forms:
- You need to download the “Undelete” Android app for recovery.
- After installation, open the app and select the storage device from where you are looking to recover removed data. The app is very simple and you will do it at one go.
