Recovering data from Android Phones with Dr. Fone
After installing the Dr. Fone software in your Windows (or Mac) computer, you have to connect your Android phone to your PC via a USB cable and launch the Dr. Fone software. It recognizes the phone and offers you to choose the type of files you want to recover. For this to work, you must have enabled the USB debugging in Android and rooted your device (Dr. Fone can guide you for both the requirements).
Dr. Fone asks you if you want to scan only for the deleted files or scan for all files – the latter method of scanning takes a longer time but produces more results. If either of these modes do not give you desired results, then you are also offered a deep scan mode which takes even longer but promises to find all the deleted files.
It goes through the mobile phone storage, scanning and finding the deleted files. A progress of all the found files is displayed in the window. The scanning process could be slower if the USB port has problems or the USB data cable is faulty. After the scan, you can click on the folders on the left side to see a preview of all the files found. Now all you have to do is simply select all the files you want to recover and click on the Recover buttons.
