My method is to prepare for loss.

I'm sure you can google android file recovery but here's why I don't advise ... after the fact ... recovery apps. These often fail because we are installing to the same area the files are stored in.

Most folk learn about all this by losing stuff. Now they are ready to talk about backup and more.

I use Dropbox on my Android devices since photos I take automatically sync. I've yet to lose a thing.

Great advise!

I'm using Apple devices, that's a very good advise I should have use some kind of backup storage as iCloud drive or as you mentioned Dropbox.

recover lost photos


With the use of Syncios Data Recovery you can manage to recover your lost data and photos.

Connect your iPhone to your computer then launch the Syncios Data Recovery software. Click recover from the iOS device then scan your iPhone to retrieve lost photos. Next click on the recover button to restore your photos after you select all of the photos you want to retrieve.

Hope this helps.
Have a blissful day!

While there is Recuva for Android

If you continue to use and install apps, these can overwrite what you wanted to recover.

Is anyone telling folk that we must backup what we can't lose?

Well, there are lots of data recovery software offered to choose from on the internet. Then we have to consider what it a good data recovery software then? I would say it must be a powerful and professional recovery tool which allows you to perform all kinds of data recovery efficiently. What's more, it should be easy to use and have concise interface. Of course, it should be well compatible with all the mainstream operating system. By considering all of these, I suggest you using the tipard data recovery.
