People may lost files on their Android devices for various reasons, it could be either accidental deleting, factory setting restores, device broken, system crash, ROM flashing or rooting etc.
When deleting happens, the first thing you need to do is to stop using your device otherwise the new files will overwrite the old files, and you will lose the chance to retrieve your deleted files, then, get a Android Data Recovery to get your lost files back.
The most powerful and widely used Android Data Recovery is Wondershare Dr. Fone for Android which can easily recovery your deleted photos as well as videos, contacts, messages, audio, documents, Whatsapp history and call history etc from Samsung Galaxy Note 3/2, Samsung Galaxy S5/S4/S3,and other Android devices.
Step by step to recover deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Step 1: Connect your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the computer
After launching Dr. Fone for Android, you will get the following main interface. Then, please connect your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the computer via a USB cable.
Step 2: Enable USB debugging before scanning your phone
If your Samsung device isn’t detected by the program, you need to enable USB debugging (or enable USB Storage Mode) on your phone. Check what Android OS is your Samsung and then choose the right way to open USB debugging follow below steps:
Note: If you have enabled USB debugging on your device before, you can skip this step.
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < Click “Applications” < Click“Development” < Check “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check“USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < Click “About Phone” < Tap“Build number” for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < Click“Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”.
Note: If you still get this window and the USB debugging has been enabled, please try to disable it and reset it again.
Step 3. Scan your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for deleted photos
After your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is connected and detected by the program, click “Start” to start analyzing your device.
Note: Before doing this, make sure that your phone battery is more than 20% charged, so that you can get a smooth scan
If your device is not rooted before, the program will directly scan it after the analysis.
Note: For the device that Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android doesn’t support currently, it may lead you to set USB Mass Storage on your device to scan photos, videos, music and documents, or to root your device by yourself (if there is no USB Mass Storage option). All rooted Android devices are supported well. You can choose to do it or not by yourself.
If you rooted your device before, you need to allow the program Superuser authorization on the screen of your device. Just click “Allow” when the message pops out on your device’s home screen. Then back to your computer, and click “Start” on the program’s screen to scan your device.
Note: For some devices, they may ask you to click “Allow” more than one time on your device’s homescreen. It’s normal. Just do it if it askes. It doesn’t matter. Just click it until it doesn’t appear again or the program has begun its real scan.
Do not disconnect your device during the scan, or the scan will fail.
Step 4: Preview and recover photos from Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The scan will take you some time. Then, you can preview all recoverable data found in the scan result one by one. Actually, the current messages, contacts, photos, video and documents are also scanned out in the result. Deleted SMS and contacts are shown in red. You can separate them by the color.
After preview, mark the photos you want to recover and click “Recover” to save them on your computer. As to contacts, you can save them in CSV, vCard or HTML format; to messages, save them in CSV or HTML format.
