How to recover deleted photos and messages on Android!

One of the main problems we have with our mobile devices is limited storage capacity. Your Android phone can only contain a very limited amount of data. The solution at the moment is create some more space on existing storage by deleting some files. But once files are deleted, it gets more complicated to recover them without the help of apps.

Sometimes, we accidentally delete photos, videos, messages or some useful files from our mobile device. Once this happens, there is often some panic and some very bad feelings.

Today, we are looking at how an android data recovery app can help us recover deleted photos from android. Not only that! This same app can also help you recover deleted text messages, videos, documents, etc in a matter of minutes.

Some weeks back, after this bloggers forum, I got some quite exciting pictures deleted from my phone by accident. It got me thinking and looking for how to restore deleted pictures on android. But I had luck showering on me;

I smiled when I understood that deleted documents can be recovered with an early undelete action. The point is that files deleted on Android are not really deleted. Whether photos, music, documents, it is not actually deleted until something has been written over it in the device’s memory.

If you’ve deleted some messages from your phone, you have to act quick, because the messages are really not deleted until the portion of memory on which they are saved is rewritten.

There are different storage scanning mode. But for quick results, scan for deleted files only. There will be an RSA key prompt on your smartphone (check ‘Always accept’ to make it easier). This will make the connection between the two devices secure and, of course, grant Superuser permission when prompted.

This smart data recovery app will ask you to select the type of file to recover. If you just photos, un-check the other options and make sure just the “Galery” option is selected.

Note that the more options you check, the more time it will take to recover the deleted data.

In the image below, I unchecked other options except the “Galery” for my pictures. What I have is a list of 517 deleted photos with an option to restore everything with a simple click of a button or pick a few pictures to restore.

    This is really a very awesome and helpful post especially to we android users. There are at times when you will accidentally delete a file on your phone and even when you give people your phone, some of them will just be deleting your pictures without your content and on seeing this, you’ll be become hugely disappointed and mad.

    However, having an easy way through which those valuable files can be recovered is a no brainer and I’m heading straight to download iSkysoft.

    Thanks for sharing.
