Today android phones are coming with an internal storage which is called the internal sdcard. Because of this the need for external sdcards is vanishing day by day. But when your phone is factory reset you lost all the data stored in it while in case of external sdcard you have an option to save your data. If you accidently lost all the data stored in your phone then don't worry I have a solution to get it back. This trick will work on phones having mass storage mode support, if you are running android 4.1 jellybean and above then root your phone to get mass storage( the tutorial is different for different phones), If you don't know the rooting procedure and getting mass storage mode then please do not try this.

Very Important Note
If you have accidently lost all your files, photos and videos from your phone then after this do not copy new files to the phone. This also include clicking photos and capturing videos. If you copy new files to the phone then you are actually reducing your chances to get back your deleted photos and videos and other files. In short just don’t download anything to your phone, do not use the internet on your phone till the time when you get back your lost files back.

Note : This trick will only work on android phones having mass storage mode and MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) options. If your device is rooted then you can enable mass storage mode on your android phone. After enabling mass storage mode you can get back deleted photos, videos and all files from the internal storage of any android phone.

1. Recuva for Windows 7, Windows 8
2. A USB data cable.

Now Follow The Steps Below
  • Download and install recuva. While installation do not uncheck any option.
  • Now connect your android phone in mass storage mode. Connect it to pc a notification will appear in the phone, tap it to enable mass storage.
  • Now open My computer and you will see ‘Removable disk’.
  • Open recuva and click ‘Next’, on the next step ‘All Files’ will auto selected. Again click ‘Next’. Then choose ‘In a specified location’ and click ‘Browse’. Choose the ‘removable disk’ or ‘MTP’ disk here and click ‘Next’.
  • In next step put a check mark in ‘Enable Deep Scan’ and click ‘Start’.
  • After scan is finished you will see the list of all deleted files. Green circles is means that file can be recovered while red circle means unrecoverable file.
  • Now check the box next to ‘Filename’ to select all files. Click ‘Recover’ on the bottom right and choose ‘Desktop’ .Your deleted files will be recovered.

This trick can be applied on android phones running gingerbread, Ice cream sandwich and jellybean OS (rooted).

Have you confirmed that this works? I don't see compatibility with MTP and Recuva, since it doesn't appear to be a mounted drive.
I'm running it right now, but it seems like it's just scanning files on my computer... I'll see in another hour or so.

Android data recovery can recover any photos & videos generated by your phone or transferred from other devices, as well as music, documents, archives, and more stored on your SD card inside the Android phone.
