"Recover files from Android phones and tablets"

Overview

7-Data Android Recovery is for owners of an Android smart phone or tablet who have unfortunately lost or damaged files that they wish to regain access to. These can be videos, pictures, audio, emails, documents, and almost anything else that was previously stored and accessible from the mobile device. When it comes to the photos, many formats are supported including JPG, TIFF, PNG, PSD, GIF and others.

Installation

The installation of 7-Data Android Recovery comes with a warning part-way through to not install the Android Recovery package to the drive you wish to recover. A shortcut icon can be created. Once fully installed, the software launches right away. As well as the software launching, it also opens a page to the developer's web site in a web browser without asking permission.

Interface

The interface begins simply with an Android phone picture and a laptop picture with the USB connection symbol between them. Hook up the phone and click Next. The software takes you through the motions and then successfully connects to the device. It then scans its storage thoroughly before switching to its data display page.

With the system scan page, the file systems are shown in the left pane which can be expanded out to see each branched folder and further to sub folders, etc. The name, size, modification time, and files count is shown in the right pane. There is the option to double click on a file to preview it. Files can be marked in the checkbox to agree to recover them. The Save button in the bottom right area can initiate a recovery and saving process in the software. The button bar at the top includes buttons for Search file, Find file, Thumbnail, Up (to move up a parent folder), Select All, and Deselect All.
