Today I want to introduce you to the program Gihosoft Free Android Data Recovery, which one of the readers recommended to me. What are its pros and cons, the differences between the paid version and the free one, how to use it – we will consider all this in today’s publication
The program can recover the following types of data:
Multimedia files: photos, music, video
Documents Word, Excel, PPT, PDF, TXT, archives, etc.
Service files: SMS, contact list, call history
WhatsApp and Viber chat history, including messages and transferred media files
The software works perfectly with both the internal memory of Android devices and the SD cards connected to them. The algorithm of search and recovery to the limit is simple and clear:
1. Download the Gihosoft Free Android Data Recovery program from the developer’s site and install it on your PC (there are versions for Windows and Mac).
Run it and tick the data types that require recovery.
selection of file types
Connect your mobile device to PC via USB cable (all versions of Android are supported starting from 2.0).
2. Start the search process. All files deleted once will be found and sorted into categories: contacts, video, audio, documents, etc.
lost files to recover
You can easily view them before restoring and make sure that this is exactly what you were looking for. Check the necessary files and start the recovery process (Recover button). Files will be immediately stored in the specified location.
Gihosoft Free Android Data Recovery has two versions: Free (free) and PRO (currently worth $ 49.95). The differences between them are in the available functionality. So, PRO version, unlike Free, is able to recover:
Contact list with related updates (email, position, etc.)
Images and videos in original quality
Correspondence in WhatsApp and Viber with the transferred multimedia files
It turns out that the Free version may not really be that much:
Call history recovery
Recovery of audio recordings without loss in quality
Based on all the above, in my opinion, the conclusion is the following: you need to restore music or documents from a smartphone or tablet – use the free version of Gihosoft Free Android Data Recovery. If we are talking about photos, contacts, SMS or video – layout fifty bucks for the PRO version or look for something else 🙂
