Data recovery from android systems consist of extensive support for SDK emulator systems, X-86 for Linux, phones, tablets and other mobile and smart devices. Even Linux based Android devices are supported by the data recovery software applications. Most of the android devices are internal and external flash drives, SD cards, SSD storage devices, memory cards etc. Corruption of such media can happen due to virus attacks, malware, unintentional file, folder and partition deletion, OS crash and other reasons like exposure of the device to heat and humidity, accidental falls, water damage etc. in all these cases you must carefully consider the options for taking the failed device to a professional data recovery expert to get it diagnosed for accurate error detection.
Once the expert gives you the diagnosis results you can choose the next step. Of course in cases of file and partition deletions, you will be able to download the software application, install it run it and recover the files and partitions in a DIY approach. It is only in case of serious and non recoverable conditions when DIY does not work that you will need the help of experts. Our system of technical experts and high end OEM and enterprise software systems are capable of diagnosing, detecting and repairing most types of logical and physical damages to your android drives and devices. We offer latest hardware tools for device repair and restoration along with data recovery from them using OEM software applications provided by the equipment manufacturers. These systems have proved to produce good and reliable results even in cases of most critically damaged drives and devices.
Android software data recovery apps
Most prominent features of the open source software applications (FULL VERSIONS) are support for multiple file types, sector wise scanning, partition recovery, bad sectors scanning and options for recovered file transfer into secondary storage devices. For example you can consider the open source software from EaseUS. When you come across this specific app, for the first time you will be impressed with its support features for photos and video files. This is natural for you as a smart phone user as you might have saved plenty of such files from all the tourist places you visited and the family occasions you celebrated.
- Multiple file format support: – EaseUS is one of the many open source data recovery applications which give full support for of multiple file extensions. When you work online and exchange files with your friends, you might download .JPG, .PING, .DOC, .PDF, .AVI, .MP4 and other files. The other files supported by this software app are APK files, music files and other media and system files from the core Linux platform.
- External drive usage: – While recovering the files and folders with the help of EaseUS recovery software application, the system displays options for single or multiple file selection from your chosen drive. Once you have made the selection and choose a restoration destination, it is a good practice to restore data onto an external drive, rather than choosing a different volume on the corrupt disk. One of the best ways you can do so is by connecting the windows phone system to an external memory card or flash card. Flash cards give you options for recovering large volumes of data at a single instance.
Software installation is done with simple steps which are self guiding in nature. You need a main desktop or laptop computer into which you can download and install the application. Once you install the software you will be able to launch it after connecting the failed android device to the computer with the help of USB port.
The main menu in the user interface is said to be highly user friendly in nature as it offers most of the DIY options for recovering deleted files and folders, lost links in the file system, corrupt boot sectors and logical partitions etc. You may face some problems with bad sectors while the system scans the drive. In such cases you need to check out for alternate options if the software application is unable to extract data from such areas.
Data recovery from bad sectors
If the number of bad sectors in the flash drive or SSD card/memory card is more than 50%, you will certainly need the help of a professional data recovery expert. He will be able to use hardware tools and OEM software apps for deep probing the bad sectors and recover the data through imaging process. There are many types of deep probing like scanning probes, magnetic force microscopy, tunneling microscopy and others. These tools are capable of detecting the minutest electrical pulses generated by the residue magnetic elements generated by the data elements in the bad sectors. They are usually equipped with a magnet coated tip and a sensitive cantilever that pass over magnetic domains in the SSD and flash drives. They can start the probe from the track and sectors and move on to the finest track edges from where they can extract bits of data images. This specialty feature makes them highly reliable in data recovery from most critically damaged sectors in any type of storage device.
The OEM software application which accompanies the probing device is capable of converting these bits of recovered data into meaningful file formats. The link between master file tables, data on the recoverable sectors and the bits of data in the bad sectors are created by the OEM software application based on bitwise operators and bit based algorithms. This helps in completing the data structure of the complete files. The only problem you may face while recovering files in this manner is loss of original file names and sometimes their extensions. In such cases you need to deliberately sit and try to open them with the help of most appropriate application, once they are recovered.
If you are working with windows OS, the system will give you options to open the unnamed and unknown type of file with a web based application. This could solve your problem of file and content recognition. Once you know the content and file type you can use the SAVE AS option in the web app to save the file with a new name and known extension.
