How To Recover Data After Factory Reset From Android Mobile?

A Factory reset is nothing but resuming the Android device back to its original settings when it was originally bought. If you apply factory setting to an Android phone, whatever data is stored in its built-in memory as well as its external memory will be erased completely. It is same as formatting a computer hard-drive. In some scenarios such as software bugs, phone hanging, freezing etc, it is unavoidable to apply factory settings.

There can be many reasons why factory setting gets applied in your Android phone.

  • Sometimes, you might accidentally press Reset to Factory settings and lose all your data.
  • Virus attack or Malware which can corrupt the entire data
  • You might unintentionally format the drive when you are performing some operation by connecting your mobile to your computer
  • When you are using the same SD card in more than one device, or when you are removing the SD card when some of its files are still being accessed, it might lead to data loss.

Luckily, there is a solution to your problem. There is powerful software that can perform a recovery operation in your Android device and get all your data back without any data loss or loss of quality.

How to recover data from Android after Factory Reset?

          Hi Sruthi,
          If you are looking for data which is deleted an year back then it is highly impossible as those data might have easily overwritten.
          You can anyway give it a try and if lucky you should get your data back.
