How to Recover Deleted Videos from Android Phones & Tablets

Posted by on .

Nowadays smartphones are in the trend, and people use their phone for multitasking and not just for calling and texting. Most of the Android users keep their important photos, videos, and other data stored in their phone's storage which is good because they can access the data anywhere they go. It comes very handy when your data is stored there in your phone's storage. But, the smartphone is something that people use frequently, and there are chances that the phone gets some issues, and the data stored can be lost. There are chances that you accidently delete whole videos folder on your Android phone as well. Yes, it happens! I am guilty of it as I have deleted the complete folder of camera videos on my Android phone. Luckily those photos were not that important. But, you need to be careful because you never know when such accidents happen.


So, What to Do to Stay Safe in Such Situation?

The simplest suggestion I would like to recommend you is that you take backup of everything you keep in your smartphone. When I record some videos, I directly upload to my Dropbox account as I have its app installed on my phone. It is simple to have some storage app on your phone, and whenever some new data is there, keep it there too so that if you lose the data at some point, you can retrieve from there.


On Android storage system, if you delete a videos or other data from Android, you still have a chance to recover it because the file is never really deleted and Android just marks the space the file occupied as available for new data storage. So, if you have already lost the videos or other data and want to get it back, a data recovery application is required if you need to retrieve videos files which has been marked as permanently deleted by Android system.
