Top 10 Best Android Data Recover Software

Top 10 Best Android Data Recover Software

We’ve all done it. Mistakenly hit the trash button on a photo we had no intention of deleting and when are phones asked us if we were sure, we still somehow clicked yes, deleting the photo forever. Well maybe forever, there are oodles of data recovery software that can recover data deleted from your Android device, here are my top 10, in no particular order.

1. Wondershare Dr. Fone for Android
Dr.Fone for Android is an awesome utility, that allows you to restore messages, contacts, photos, and videos. The nice little touch is, if you’re looking for a specific message you deleted, it supports the ability to review & selectively recover messages, contacts, and photos before recovery.

2. Dumpster Photo & Video Restore
I must admit, calling this little app recovery software may be a bit of a stretch, but what this app does is serve as an Android equivalent of the Windows Recycle Bin. If allows you to soft delete data, before completely purging it from your phone, so it is available for recovery until you clear its dumpster.

3. DiskDigger Photo Recovery
DiskDigger Photo Recovery is limited to recovering photos in its free version and requires root access to recover anything not stored in your cache or thumbnails. This is more suited to reverse the mistake of the recently deleted photo from your mom, than a full-scale recovery suite.

4. Undeleter Recover Files & Data
Like its brethren DiskDigger, Undeleter Recover Files & Data is pretty limited without root access. But with root access you can recover just about anything you can think of that has been deleted. One more nice little touch, it can also “shred” files, which makes files unrecoverable, great for the privacy conscious.

5. iCare Data Recover Free
iCare is actually a Windows application, but it can be used to recover photos, audio, video, and documents from your phone. The great thing is since it is Windows based, your phone does not superuser permissions, just connect your phone’s SD card and recover away.

6. Jihosoft Android Phone Recovery
iCare on steroids, meet Jihosoft Android Phone Recovery another Windows (it also has a Mac version) application that allows you to connect your phone to your PC to recover deleted data. It restores everything iCare’ software does, plus, text, contacts, WhatsApp messages, and more.

7. FonePaw iOS Android Data Recovery
One downside to the two previous applications we’ve mentioned is compatibility. FonePaw IOS Android Data Recovery fixes that problem and is also extremely user-friendly.

8. Recuva
Recuva is an application I’ve used to restore data on Windows for years, it’s a free and lightweight application that is still powerful. While made for a desktop computer you can simply mount your phone on your Windows PC and run Recuva. One catch, the filesystem of your phone storage must be NTFS or FAT32 or Recuva won’t work.

9. GT Recovery
Is another awesome Android app with a caveat, your device must be rooted for it to work. With that said, there is also a Windows version that you can install and use from your PC if you’re not the technical rooting type.

10. Titanium Backup * Root
Not a recovery software in the truest sense of the word, Titanium Backup it is a powerful tool that can prevent the need for a recovery tool. While it does require root and that may be a drawback to some, it can backup everything from your data to your apps, to the configuration of your app, and then some. If you’re backing up your phone, delete just about anything it is recoverable from this backup utility.

There are so many other data recovery apps, these are just the best of the best.

The Six Phases of e-Discovery

The phases involved in e-discovery.

Since storing information electronically is always on the rise, it is important to plan carefully on how to handle the data without losing it. E-discovery is essential in legal proceedings which include government investigations on a crime or litigation. During legal proceedings, the lawyers from either side should cooperate to make the discovery process a success. The following are the phases followed in e-discover process.Identification The stage involves the identification of custodians who might have relevant information that could be used in a legal proceedings.

In addition to information, the custodians can have necessary documents which might have crucial information on the same. At this stage, large volumes of data can be available for identification making it very cumbersome and time wasting. To reduce the data volume to be handled, some techniques are used e.g. limiting the range of time to have workable data. Preservation The main objective of this phase is to avoid spoilage or destruction of identified data. Therefore, the relevant data which is identified from different sources is kept in a legal hold for a period of time before starting the next phase. Losing data at this stage may lead to wrong conclusions while a failure to preserve the identified information can lead to sanctions.Collection This involves the transfer of preserved data to a legal counsel. The counsel is supposed to determine the relevance and inclination of the data provided. Some companies have specialised in e-discovery and hence they have a computer software which starts the collection process immediately a legal notice is received. However, there are other professionals known as digital forensic experts who can be hired on contract to avoid the data spoilage or destruction. If the legal counsel finds the data relevant, the e-discovery process is supposed to continue to the next phase. Processing This entails the conversion of electronically stored information (ESI) into available review formats e.g.PDF or TIFF. This conversion is vital because it enables easy redaction of the processed data. With the modern technology, the review attorneys are able to precisely identify the relevant documents needed in e-discovery from a large volume of provided data.Review This phase is important before presentation of the final data. Review tools are used in this stage to either identify the relevant documents needed or culling the documents which are not useful in the discovery process. In addition to improving the usefulness of the data, reviewing phase helps in removal of documents which have vague or duplicated information. Production This is the last phase of e-discovery process. The final documents are given to the opposing counsel in an accepted format. The documents are mainly produced as native files or as petrified formats e.g. PDF.After the information has reached the production level, the subsequent stage in the process is presentation. The documents are presented to a fact finder to look for the necessary information needed as evidence. The presentation procedure can be done through motion practice e.g. movies or a trial in a court of law.
