Help with recovery of lost files & rooting?

Hi,

HELP!

Unfortunately my phone was recently returned to factory settings without backing up the data. I am attempting to recover the pictures that where on the phone during the reset.

Im using an old HTC wildfire s on Android. 2.3.5 software 2.26.771.2

I have tried recovering the data my self using numerous recovery programs. I either the device is not recognised, cannot find the older files, or retrieves (what I presume to be the files in a .TGA format which are in fact blank.

Upon querying this I was told rooting the phone would help. I have tried this but when using HTC Super Tool v2 & Kingo Root I received error messages telling me the ROM was outdated or the software was outdated and they couldnt root.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! otherwise i'll give up and send it to some company.

Many thanks,

SNC

Hi SNC,

Unfortunately, I think you may have exhausted the limit of current recovery options available for android devices. At this point, you would be looking at a data recovery service (forensic level stuff) that can range in the thousands. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I would not mind being proven wrong at all for the chance to learn a new technique if you come across a solution. However, at this point, I believe that none exist.

Provided that you have tried many android data recovery tools, most of android data recovery tools will root your phone without notification. That's to say, even you root the htc, it is hardly to restore the lost files and the old files probably have been overwritten by new content already.

I don't know if you have tried jihosoft android phone recovery, they said it can recover data after factory reset android, you can give it a try.

We can find lots of question as "Is it possible to recover deleted data and files from my Samsung Note 4?" "Can I restore my Samsung Galaxy contacts, text messages, photos, videos and more directly?" on the internet. As the deleted files still remain intact until that data is not overwritten by any new data, we give you the answer is Yes. If you stop using your device immediately after losing your files, the files still can be recovered with the aid of an android data recovery software.

Android data recovery is a comprehensive program which can be used to recover deleted contacts, text message, photos and videos from all kinds of Samsung device and it recover deleted files from Android internal memory too, including Samsung phones and tablets, Samsung Note 5/4, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge+, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, Samsung Captivate, Samsung Infuse, Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Epic 4G Touch, Samsung Galaxy A9/A8/A7/A5, Samsung Galaxy Note and so on.
