Part 1. FoneDog Toolkit- Android Data Recovery – The Best Data Recovery for Android

Data recovery for Android programs is now getting some big attention due to the surprising rise of data loss. We all know that data loss is among the top issues all Smartphone users are facing with. This challenge has resulted in more backup options given by the phone’s manufacturer or other third-party apps. However, most people still don’t get the idea of backing up their devices frequently since it can be a great hassle. The most common files affected by data loss are:

  • Contacts
  • Call Logs
  • Text Messages
  • WhatsApp messages
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Music
  • And much more…

Some files can be easily recovered thru the help of auto-sync options by most Android devices like contacts, calendars, to its respective Google account. However, important files like messages, photos, and other media contents are mostly affected because they lack strong backup apps. Data Loss can be caused by the following reasons:

  • Software Update
  • Corrupt memory or device

  • Formatted device/memory card
