Recover Media Files from Android Phone

Q: Every year I shot many videos of my son and other relatives in the my baby's birthday with the camera, but in this year I shot the birthday videos with my Android phone instead of camera, because the camera is too old to work and I think the mobile phone can function as well as the camera. It is also convenient to shoot videos with the mobile phone. I was watching the videos when a friend suddenly jumped out and gave me a surprise, and the things just happened. My fingers may tapped on some buttons, I do not know the exact situation and anyway the important and precious videos were deleted by the me! I really felt sad and could anyone please tell me what I should do if I want to recover the lost videos? It will be kind of you to tell me the solution.

There various kinds of applications in the Android phone and I think that is why so many people indulged in playing smart phone. But in daily life we may face the risk of deleting the media files like videos, photos, music, etc during the time we played the mobile phone. What will do then ? If you want to recover the lost media files, then you should stop playing your Android device. Because the deleted files are not erased permanently, actually the space that the deleted files took up just became useable when you deleted the files. But the deleted files will not be recovered if you add new files into the phone, which will occupy the space that the erased ones took up and will overwrite the old one.

After that, you need a third party application to rescue the lost media files. Android File Recovery is a good choice for you. With this software, you can finish the recovery process with a click and in seconds simply and efficiently. Not only to that, the procedure can detect and scan all the space of your smart phone from SD card to SIM card and from external storage space to internal storage space, so it can scan not only the media files but also the contacts and SMS messages, and that means your other deleted files like contacts and messages can also be restored.

There are far more functions than I can describe, you can download the Free Trial version to try it.
