How to Recover Lost Data?
Lost data can be recovered using backup disk or recovery software. If you already have a backup on the cloud or on external drive, you can easily recover. For example, an iPhone user has the option to make a full backup using iTunes software on Mac and Windows. Once the backup is created, iPhone user has nothing to worry. If he loses the data for any reason, he can connect iPhone to the computer. Follow the instruction shown on iTunes app, and recover all the lost data.
However, most of the users don’t really backup their data, and the only solution for them is to use a recovery software. There are many data recovery softwares that you can find, but many of them are fake, and they don’t help in recovery. Data Recovery softwares are usually not free, but they allow to recover a limited amount of data as trial.
For example, EaseUS free data recovery software let users recover 2GB data, and it should be enough to test an application if it can really re-cover the data or not. If you find the app useful, you can get the full version to recover more files. 🙂
