First of all, you’d better stop using the android phone and tablet once you realize that files are deleted. This is because that the new files could be saved over the space of deleted files and make them unrecoverable. Now, follow the steps below.


Step 1: Connect your Android device to your computer

Install and run Dr. Fone for Android, then connect your Huawei device to the computer via an USB cable. Please DO NOT start any other Android phone manager during the recovery time.


Step 2: Enable USB debugging

If you have enabled USB debugging on your Huawei phone before, go to step 3 straightly. If not, follow the below 3 ways to enable USB debugging according to the different Android OS version:

1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < “Applications” < “Development” < “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < “Developer options” < “USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < “About Phone” < Tap “Build number” for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < “Developer options” < “USB debugging”


Step 3: Analyze and Scan the data on Huawei

Connect your phone to the computer again. Click “Next” to start analyzing the data on your Huawei phone.

After analyzing, you need to allow the program Superuser authorization on the screen of your Huawei device before the scan. Just click the pop-up “Allow” button on your device’s screen until it doesn’t appear again. Then return to the computer, and click “Start” on the software’s screen to start scanning the phone.


Step 4: Select file types to scan

For saving time, there will be list contents like gallery, video, messaging, contacts, etc. Just mark the items that you need to recover, of course, you can select all, and then click “Next“.


After then, you can choose to scan for “deleted files”, “all files” in Standard Mode or Advanced Mode as you need, and then click “Next“.



Step 5: Preview and recover deleted files from Huawei phone

The scanning process will take some time. After then, you can preview all recoverable contents, such as contacts, photos and text messages, but the videos are the exception. Tick off those you need and press “Recover” to save on your computer in just 1 click.


Don’t hesitate to download the best Huawei Recovery tool now.

    Hey, I am in need of serious help. I had a lot of memories created, all stored in gallery. However by accidentally approximately 2 weeks ago I deleted everything. Literally everything. Since then I continued using my phone. Downloading apps taking pics etc. Because I didn’t know you could restore on Huawei Phones. Now I wish to restore them, is there anyway that I could? Please let me know. I was deeply saddened thinking I couldn’t.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
