How can Samsung Data Recovery Restore Lost Data?

How can Samsung Data Recovery restore data that have already been deleted from the phone? In fact, when we delete a file, the file is not completely wiped out from the phone but remains somewhere in the memory space. If we could detect the file from the phone's memory space and restore it to its original state, we will have the file back. Samsung Data Recovery is the magical tool that can do this for us.

However, the deleted file won't remain in our phone forever. When new data is generated, the phone will automatically remove some of the deleted files to save space for the new data. Therefore, to ensure that the deleted data still stay in your Samsung phone, you better stop using the phone after the deletion and let Samsung Data Recovery help you.
