The Android Data Recovery programme will assist you to recover not only photos and videos, but also text messages and contacts from Android phone or tablet. This will help safeguard your phone, set it up for easy recovery when it gets lost, and prevent your data from falling into the wrong hands.
Step 1: Stop updating your Android once your precious data gets lost
If your Android data is lost, stop adding or deleting any data of your Android. If not, your Android data will be overwritten. That is, all your lost data cannot come back to you anymore. So, make sure not to update your Android as long as your data gets lost.
Step 2: Run the Android Data Recovery
Install the programme on your computer and run it; you will be asked to connect your Android device to a Personal Computer via USB.
Step 3: Set up Android to enable USB debugging
After connecting your Android to the computer, go to the step 2 – Enable USB debugging. Here you have three ways to do it according to different Android OS version:
- For Android 4.2 or the newer: Enter “Settings > About Phone > Build number” for several times and when you get the note: “You are under developer mode”, you can go back to “Settings > Developer options > USB debugging”.
- Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings >Developer option > USB debugging”.
- Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings >Applications > Development > USB debugging”.
In the latest version of Android Data Recovery, you are empowered to selectively choose which type of files to be scanned. If you want to recover all types of files, you can just skip it and move on.
Step 4: Start scanning your Android for deleted file
Once you enable USB debugging for your Android, it will be detected by the programme. Then click on the green button “Start” to analyse your Android data.
When you see the window below, it is time for you moving to your Android device again, tap on the “Allow” icon, then turn back to the computer and click on the “Start” button to continue.
Step 5: Preview and recover contacts, messages, photos and video from Android
As you can see, this Android Data Recovery can recover data including text messages, contacts, photos and videos from your Android device. But you can only preview messages, contacts and photos now.
At the last step, check and mark those you want and click “Recover” to save them to your computer.

Later that day, if your Android data gets lost, you can restore your deleted Android data back from the previous backup with Android Data Recovery.
