Smartphone is not merely a communication tool. It is the smaller form if a computer. All data stored on your smartphone matter and losing them can be a nightmare, especially if you use your smartphone for business. Even so, losing smartphone data is not doomsday. You can get them back with a data recovery tool.
PhoneRescue is a data recovery tool that is designed specifically for Android devices (also available for iPhone). You can use this tool to recover the lost data on your Android device whether due to accidental deletion, virus attack, app crash or any cause to make you lose your data.
How can the lost data be restored?
Well, this is probably the most basic thing you need to know before using a data recovery tool like PhoneRescue. When you deleted a file from your smartphone — whatever the form — the actual data of the file you deleted is not really gone right away. Instead, it still resides somewhere on your smartphone until it was overwritten by other data. A data recovery tool works by scanning your smartphone — along with the installed memory card — to figure out if the data you are looking for still around. Once found, you can restore it.
However, not all data can be restored, depending on how long it has been deleted. If you have deleted a file for a quite while and you have just realized it, you might won’t get it back since there is a big chance the actual data of your file has been overwritten by other data. PhoneRescue itself supports Deep Scan mode to perform a deeper scanning to recover longer file deletion. But again, this method won’t help much if your data has been overwritten.
In addition to recovering the lost data on Android Device, PhoneRescue also comes with a feature to remove Android screen lock in case you forgot your lock screen pin or pattern.
