Accidentaly deleted/lost all your data? Looking for a way to recovery lost data on Android? Here’s how you can recover deleted data from Android.
If you are here, that means you have lost your valuable data at some point in time or you are here just to acquire knowledge so that you are prepared for any similar mishappenings that may occur in the future. This is no hidden secret that we have all accidentally deleted photos, videos or files. I have been there, experienced it and I know how disastrous it feels to lose one’s own treasured data.
To recover your deleted data, let us understand how Android Operating System handles data. When you delete some data, it remains in the same spot. It is just that the spot is marked unused. This is how Android understands that there is space for new data to be stored in that space. Once the spot is used by new data, the deleted files are overwritten and deleted permanently. Hence, make sure that you do not add any new data or edit the ones present on your device and start the recovery process as soon as possible; the quicker the better.
So, you must stop panicking now and follow the steps mentioned in this article which might help you in retrieving your lost data.
