Recover Deleted Files In Android

Yes, you have heard it right; you can restore deleted files in android too.

I have shared the idea of restoring accidentally deleted files in windows Recover Deleted Files In Windows. Today I will be sharing restoring of deleted files in android. For restoring files in android your Android should be rooted and for rooting your android I have shared a post on it Root Your Android. Now you need an application called “DiskDigger” which can be downloaded HERE.

DiskDigger is an android application which is cable of restoring deleted files such as videos, images, mp3, documents, compressed archives, android applications etc. and many more. It offers two type of scans for your deleted files. They are basic scan(no root) and full scan(root required).
  •  Basic scan involves scan for cached versions and thumbnails of your photos  (and only photos).  It will generally recover lower resolutions of your deleted photos. Recovering the original size photos, as well as other types of files is only possible by rooting of your device.
  • Full scan requires root and is capable of recovering photos, as well as other types of files. Only rooted  phones can perform a full scan and you can select memory partition from the list given and perform a full scan to recover what you have lost due to several reasons.


1. Download DiskDigger from playstore or HERE and install it.
2. After installing open it. Now it should ask for root access if you have rooted phones otherwise you should refresh it for prompting root access. Give it root access.

3. Now, if you have no rooted devices then you can follow guide Root Your Android . You can start the basic scan for recovering low resolutions photos only if you aren't rooted otherwise you can start the full scan and start recovering deleted files.

4. Before starting "Full Scan" you should choose the type of files you want to recover. After selecting the file type click on "ok".

5. When the app starts scanning for deleted files, app screen will start showing the deleted files.

6. You can filter the recoverable files on file size, and file type on pressing the "Options" button (gear icon). If you want to apply a minimum size on files shown, press the checkbox next to "Minimum file size", and enter the minimum number of bytes below. By default, a minimum size is enabled when recovering photos, to filter out most other (non-photos) images that may be on your device's memory (from browser cache, bitmaps from other apps, etc).

7. After the scan completes, you can recover selected files to an app, device or perform FTP upload.
· Recovering files to an app: You can recover files to other apps on your device. For example, you can send the files to the email app so that you can email the files to yourself. You can also send the files to Google Drive or other cloud services. You can select the app where you want to send your recoverable files.

· Recovering files Locally:  You can also save files to a local device (external card or internal storage). You will be prompted to save the files by selecting the location and you can recover it.
NOTE: For recovering the deleted files you should recover the deleted files in other partitions other than the location from where it was deleted.  For example, if the file was deleted in internal storage then you should save the file in external SD so that the recovered isn't permanently overwritten.

· Recovering files by FTP upload: This method involves recovering of files to FTP server. For this you must have correct credentials for accessing and uploading the files to the server. DiskDigger will ask for FTP server address, username and password for logging and uploading files to the server. You can also enter the remote directory where you want the files to be uploaded which is an optional option. Press ok for uploading files to the server.

8. In this way, you can recover the deleted files in different ways and get access to it.
