Part 4. Tips for Successful Data Recovery on Android

However, in order to ensure that all your deleted files get recovered, there are a few things that you need to take care of.

Tip #1. Stop Using Your Device after Data Loss

Refrain from using the device the moment you feel that important files are missing for no reason. These files may be missing from your screen, but they are very much present in the hard drive, simply waiting for new data to push them into oblivion. Thus, continued use of your smartphone or tablet before successful data recovery may lead to permanent loss of your missing files.

Tip # 2. Find a Great Android File Recovery Tool

Have the iSkysoft Android Data Recovery handy. Data loss can occur at any time, and you don't want to end up getting stranded. After all, it becomes impossible to use the device after data loss. Download the software on your Windows computer so that you save valuable time when things go south.
