Being a Hack My Android reader, I suppose you must be one among those people who love switching between ROMs, modifying the Android system and tweaking it to the best of your needs. With every tutorial that we post, we do suggest you to take backups before you perform any such hacking activity. You can refer our data backup guide for more. However, there are situations when you might forget to make a backup or a nandorid backup might not work. However, it is still possible to recover deleted data on your Android device using Wondershare Dr. Fone for Android.
Dr. Fone for Android is a software for machines running Windows XP or any version higher than that including Windows 8. There aren’t many apps or software available out there which can help you recover deleted data on your Android device. Though there are some that help you recover deleted files from the device’s internal storage and SD card, they do not help you recover deleted SMS and contacts. Dr. Fone for Android is capable of recovering deleted SMS and contacts too because it can scan the entire Android system checking for bits of deleted data and displays it in a neat fashion separated in categories on your Windows PC. You can then restore the data you wish to restore.
To get started with the software, all you need to do is connect your phone to the PC via USB and make sure USB Debugging is turned ON. For Android 2.3, you can do it from Settings>Apps>Development and for Android 4.0+, you can find this option from Settings>Developer options.
Once your phone is connected to the PC, it is automatically recognized by the software. In case you do not have USB drivers installed, the software does it automatically for you. Make sure no other instance of ADB is running on the PC. In case the software does not recognize your phone, you can download USB drivers and install them on your PC. Also, check out the list of devices that this software supports before you give it a try.
