In this era of the rapid evolution of technology, almost every one of us depends on our mobiles or tablets to store our important files. We keep our photos, videos, movies, games, mobile numbers, lecture notes, research journals, and other important stuff on our gadgets.
But sometimes, accidents happen.
How many times have you deleted some relevant pictures or files from your mobile and regretted later?
Hopefully, there are solutions to that.
Did you delete your crucial files accidentally? Want to recover your deleted data? Well, you are in the right place.
We have started a Data Recovery series at HiTricks. In our earlier post, we discussed Best Data Recovery Apps for Windows. Today, we will look at the android counterpart, and talk about the best options for recovering your lost or deleted data on your Android mobile. Here’s an overview of what we will go through.
Deleted Your Data? What to do?
Before I talk about Data Recovery, first imagine the situation where you had accidentally deleted some of your important data, and you need to get them back. From that moment onwards, please ensure you follow these:
- Don’t use your file manager: Stop browsing your file manager. You should not create new files or folders, should not edit existing ones, and also not cut, copy, or paste anything. Every action you perform on your device just creates another log file, making your recovery process complex.
- Don’t overwrite any files on the target location: Do not add or remove any files from the target location where you want your data to be recovered. It will affect the recovery process altogether, and you might end up not getting anything.
- Download and Install Data Recovery Software: Just read the post below and download these apps from the Google Play Store. Don’t sideload the apps unless necessary. Refrain from doing anything else.
- Not all Apps work for Everyone: Every app works differently. So, it might happen that one app couldn’t do the job correctly. Go ahead and try the next one.
These are very basics. Your only aim should be to keep your system as unaltered as possible. It helps a lot.
Well, let’s move on to the list of data recovery apps for Android. Try them out.back to menu ↑
EaseUS Mobisaver for Android
EaseUS is popular software that deals with the storage, backup, and recovery of data on any device. They even have a solution for your Android device. Mobisaver by EaseUS can recover deleted images, videos, call logs, contacts, SMS, and WhatsApp messages from your android device without root access. When it comes to images, it can recover in PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, and TIF/TIFF image formats, and for videos, it supports MP4, 3GP, AVI, MOV video formats. It technically works without root access, but to perform deep scanning and recover files more efficiently, you might need to root your device and give it privileges.back to menu ↑
Diskdigger is also one of the best applications for recovering photos, videos, and other data from your android device. The app can recover files from both internal and external (memory card) memories. Just like EaseUS Mobisaver, the app functions without needing a root, but root access can result in better recovery and in-depth scanning features. The free version of Diskdigger recovers only photos and videos. For other types of files and data, you need to get Diskdigger Pro. After recovery, you can even send your files to the cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Photos, OneDrive, and more.back to menu ↑
Super Backup and Restore
This application is one of the fastest when it comes to scanning speeds. It can quickly recover app and app data from the internal and external storage of your device but needs root privileges. It can not only recover files but can also be used as an excellent tool for backing up everything in case you accidentally delete them in the future. There’s support for scheduled automatic backups, one tap APK share, and more. The application can even backup to Gdrive and restore them later as well.back to menu ↑
This recovery application is not a standalone Android app but needs a Windows PC to do its job properly. Other than that, Dr. Fone is perhaps the best software for recovery. It can recover files from a bunch of different scenarios such as accidentally, rooting error, damaged, system crash, flashing error, and more. The software supports more than 6000+ Android devices, and tablets from Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola, ZTE, Huawei, etc. and the list of supported devices is still increasing. Recovery can be made from internal storage, external and even from broken storage.back to menu ↑
Gihosoft is another software that uses your computer to recover images, videos, audio files, call logs, contacts, WhatsApp messages from your Android phone or tablet. It can recover data from both internal and external storage. All you have to do is to connect your Android device using USB, and the software will start scanning for deleted files. After the scanning, the application will automatically organize all the recoverable data so that you can select which files to keep and which not to. Gihosoft claims to recover your data even after a factory reset, so it comes pretty handy if you’re ever stuck in a situation like that.back to menu ↑
This recovery app can restore multiple types of files such as pictures, music, videos, contacts, texts, and more on your Android device from both the internal and external storage. When you open the app, it will show a prompt asking you whether you want to scan your internal storage or your memory card. Then it will examine the desired location and present recoverable options on your screen. It now only supports standard formats such as JPG, PNG, etc. but also supports other files such as ZIP, JAR, APK, and EPUB. Once you have recovered data, you also can save them into the cloud, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and more. This app needs root access.back to menu ↑
MiniTool Android Recovery
MiniTool Android Recovery also works the same way as Dr. Fone. You have to connect your Android device to your computer and let the software do its job. It has two different modes to recover data from your internal storage and external storage. After selecting that, the application can recover photos, videos, contacts, call logs, documents, and more. The app opens up a wizard that will improve the data quickly. The application is even useful in scenarios when your phone’s memory has been damaged, OS error, flashing error, etc.back to menu ↑
FonePaw is one of the most reliable data recovery software for Android devices. The application can quickly recover deleted texts, photos, videos, music, etc. from both the internal and external storage of your Android device. The app has a very intuitive user interface which is easy to navigate and functional as well. The app is also compatible with most Android versions, so it’s alright if you’re not on the latest version just yet. You have to connect your Android device to your computer and fire up this application to recover your files in a jiffy.back to menu ↑
DigDeep Image Recovery
This app is a little different from other apps on this list because it works for restoring images only. But it is perhaps the best app for doing that. The app doesn’t even require root access. The dominant application scans both your internal and external storage for recovering photos. The interface is clean and intuitive, and the overall scanning occurs in a jiffy as well. The app does that by checking each folder on your device. After the scan completes, it will then tell you the location of the folder your pictures are in, and you can browse and recover them from that folder.back to menu ↑
This is technically not a recovery app but serves as a recycle bin for your Android device. From the moment you install this app, all your deleted files will be backed up by this application. After that, you can easily retrieve your photos, videos, and other mobile data with just a single tap. There’s also an option to auto clean multiple images that are similar to save on space. With the premium version, you also get a cloud account, lock screen features, and custom themes as well.back to menu ↑
