Question

Recover deleted folders

I accidentally deleted about 300 important folders from my android device which was connected to my laptop. Since I deleted the device folders using my laptop, where would the deleted data go to - the phone or the laptop?

I have installed 3 softwares so far to try and recover my data - Recuva, EasyUS Data Recovery and iCare Data Recovery - all three on my laptop. Since I deleted from my laptop, the only option available was permanent deletion.

Would any of this work for the above problem, because so far I don't see any of my recently deleted data?

Deleted data goes nowhere. The bits stay where they are (until they are overwritten by other data), but there's nothing to tell what bits belong to what file, unless you use special recovery programs.

Use a recovery program on your laptop that is meant for recovering data on phones. That's better than installing a recovery app on your phone, so that's the last resort.

Didn't you backup those important folders?
