How to recover lost data on Android (rooted or not)

We've all done it: accidentally deleted photos, videos or files by accident. But don't panic. There are ways to recover your data. Time is always of the essence though: do not save anything else to your device or switch it off. And turn off your internet connection so that no automatic updates occur before you've had a chance to recover your lost data on Android.

I only read this article because I was bored at work.

    Try looking at your providers on line billing account, surprising how much info is stored, if not then give them a ring, you may possibly have to make a freedom of information request but they will have stored the data you have lost for sure. They have to by law.


  • Are there any websites that root your phone for you? I've seen OneClickRoot and Perfectroot but not sure about those. I really want my phone rooted so I can recover my photos.


  • I have a Samsung Note 4 with a completely inoperable shattered screen. The phone still rings, and texts are heard, but cannot be seen. The touch screen is non-responsive....and the phone is PIN-Locked... is there any hope of getting the content off of the internal storage? I've tried searching every site..most sites say you can do this if it's "pattern-locked", but I've seen nothing about being able to unlock a pin-locked phone, so that I can transfer the content to my computer or another phone (note 5) ...If so, please dumb it down a little. I'm not super-techy, but I know enough to be able to understand most of what's going on in this forum lol
    Also, more specifically I hope to get my sms's, pics on internal drive, and contacts from this phone....
    Thank you in advance... !!


  • i do backups monthly and i dont care if anything happens to the data on my smartphone


  • Hi,

    I have tried many software for my LG K10. I enabled developer options and usb debugging as requested.
    I used all the following software:
    Android Recovery, Dr Fon, Fonelab, Jihosoft Android Recovery, Recuva

    And none of them worked! I have over 600 photos deleted in the phone and I am trying all these software in a matter of hours.

    Please asking for your help, desperately needing your advice.

      Forget all those PC based software.

      Install one of the following android apps, and resolve your problem ..
      - DiskDigger (doesn't need root for basic scan for photos and such)
      - Dumpster (doesn't need root, but only sees stuff deleted after it was installed .. rather useless .. LOL)
      - GT Data Recovery (needs rooted)
      - HexaMob (needs root)
      There are others too ..

      Unlike the PC based software, these will do basic recovery without requiring that you pay first. Also, some of them do not require your device to be rooted.

      I recommend DiskDigger in particular because it has saved my arse a good few times now and I eventually purchased it.


      • Dumbest thing to do when wanting to recover files from a device is install anything on the device, you are trying to preserve your data, not write over it.


      • So glad to come across your comment. Thanks a million! You saved me a lot of money. Recovered all my photos for free - still purchased DiskDigger though, as a show of support.


    • Hi were you able to recover your stuff and if yes can you help me please....I'm really sad the same happened with me


  • hi i tried to download the dr fone for android recovery whenever it scans it will crash
    plz help me
    thank you


  • I have found nothing on recovery of my texts. I'm extremely frustrated.


  • Well I just tried both for a Galaxy S6, and both required root in order to work so I guess the title is a bit misleading :(


  • I didn't need any of that. I already had ASUS File Manager installed on my Wileyfox and at the bottom of the opening page is a link to Recycle Bin, which lets you see and restore deleted files without root access.


  • is there a way to recover Android phone if I accidentally wiped it from find my Android samsung.com exactly how it was set up and everything or is it gone


  • using google/motorola Nexus 6 the program Mobikin only shows that all that can be undeleted are contacts and text messages of which there are none that can be recovered... i want to un delete videos and it dosnt show that as an option so MOBIKIN does not work and is useless.

      Hello Gergory,
      could you be more specific? Is the programm simply not showing the photos or is there an error message?

      We tried it here in the office and it worked fine.

    this is a common problem for users best way around this problem is using an app for backing up all important files whether they files are photos or videos or PDF docs any and every file can be backed up automatically with Folder Sync pro simply instal that app and set it to back up using any cloud service then you simply link any folder on your device and then set it to sync to any folder on cloud, just make sure you only sync one way now if you accidentally delete a file you'll have a backup no root required you can sync every folder you can have really important files back up as soon as they're edited also can back up via wifi or mobile network


  • To save people a lot of time and stress, You will not be able to recover your deleted photos or data and these programs won't work without Rooting your phone; Which, in part, may no longer allow you to get updates from your carrier or your phone manufacturer and If your pictures were on your internal memory, then you are probably out of luck like me. Just take your existing pictures or any new pictures you take and back them up to a service such as Dropbox or Google photos. Or simply just upload them to your computer periodically so you can have copies. I had MUCH more details in this comment, but this site wouldn't allow me to post due to "Unapproved content" Bottom line being, these advertised programs won't work without your phone being rooted, Period! Photos on micro sd are Still salvageable with adpater pligged into PC and photo recovery sogtware. Sure wish I could have typed my entire comment.
