The development of smartphone technology — Android-based in particular — is really crazy in the last few years. It’s a common thing to see an Android smartphone with an 8GB RAM or even 16GB. A smartphone can really replace the role of a laptop in helping us to get the job done on the go. Just like a laptop, everything inside your smartphone needs to be managed. Be it apps, contacts to files.
Managing the content of a smartphone is a bit more hassle due to its smaller screen. Often time, we think of “this will be much easier with a laptop” when attempting to manage the files on our smartphone. Because on a laptop, we have a larger screen. Plus, we can use a mouse to make everything easier.

As mentioned earlier above, Coolmuster Android Assistant is an app that you can use to manage the content of your Android smartphone. It is a part of the Coolmuster Toolbox, which contains 7 tools in total. You can install this app whether on Windows or Mac to manage your smartphone content.

It really sucks when you accidentally deleted a file from your Android device, while you didn’t mean to do it. Easy! You can get your deleted file back with Coolmuster.
As you can see on the main window of the Coolmuster app, there is a menu called Android Recovery. This menu allows you to recover the Android files you accidentally deleted.

The USB connection is required for file recovery.
# Permanently delete Android data
For a certain reason, you might want to delete the data of your Android smartphone permanently. Probably you want to sell your old Android smartphone so that you want to clean up the content on it. It is the perfect case to use the Android Eraser feature of the Coolmuster (iOS Eraser if you use iPhone).
One crucial thing to note if you want to use this feature. You will be warned that your data will be deleted permanently, making your device like a brand new one. So, you better use this feature only if you really need it.
# Transfer data from a smartphone to another one
