This feature is useful when somebody goes wrong in your phone, either because of accidental deletion, system crash, forgotten password, or any other reason that may have caused you to lose access to your precious data.
Three methods of recovery are available for each mobile OS:
- Recover from iOS Device’s Internal Disk – Recover will scan the disk, and try to extract and recover all your data be it lost photos, videos, documents, messages, etc..
- Recover from iTunes – The iOS recovery software can also restore the back from an iTunes backup.
- Recover from iCloud – Similar to recover from iTunes, but with an iCloud backup instead.
- Recover from Android internal storage – With your phone is connected to your PC over USB, the recovery software will start a deep scan to recover all deleted file in a few minutes.
- Recover from broken Android – Similar connect-scan-recover process as above, but works even when Android is broken.
- Recover from Android SD card – Some Android phones come with a microSD card slot, and if you’ve deleted files by mistake, you can use the recovery software by inserting the microSD card into your PC or laptop.
You can check out how Recover works in iOS by watching the video below.
There are various ways to transfer data between your computer and your mobile phone such as SAMBA (Windows network share) or SFTP, but those are not always easy to use and setup, and are limited to files, i.e. settings can’t be transferred. Dr. Fone Toolkit Transfer function offers a full-featured user-friendly alternative with the following key features for Android and iOS:
- Transfer files (photos, videos, messages…) between Android/iOS and computers running Windows or Mac
- Transfer data between iTunes and Android/iOS
- Manage your Android/iOS mobile device on your computer, for example, the transfer function enables you to re-arrange photos and delete unwanted/unneeded files
- HEIC to JPEG photo conversion function
