        But I it was failed because root login.

        I’m using MAC 10.10.3 with LG G3 (5.0).

        • MJ Post authorReply

          Hi Sung,
          If you are using a guest account to run this software then it is advisable to try using the admin login.
          Free version has only limited options but if you really need all your deleted information back then you should certainly go for the licensed version.
          Do let me know if you need any further assistance.
          Good Luck

    I was in the middle of an audio recording and had just paused it (not yet saved) and the phone rang. Once I hung up I went back to the recording and it had disappeared. Is there any way to recover this?? 1.5 hours of recording 🙁

    • MJ Post authorReply

      Hi Niki,
      If this information was stored on to your mobile and then got erased then there is a chance of retrieving it. If it didn’t get saved then it is not possible.
      You can try our trial version to see whether it recovers your deleted files.

      Hey Stefan,
      Can you see the output path given in the software itself?
      Can you try to do it again if it still doesn’t work can you share your screen through team viewer?

    I’ve connected my phone and turned on USB debugging mode
    but it won’t recognize my phone and stuck on “Identify your Device”
    Whenever I press “Open? Next…”, it tries to connect but comes back to the same page of Identify your device and not recognizing my phone

    • MJ Post authorReply

      Hey Brian,
      Can you ensure that there is no issue with the USB Cable and it gets connected properly?
      If it doesn’t then it won’t proceed further.
      Also double check whether the USB Debugging is Enabled.

    It’s been a day since my phone reset. I have my contacts synced back, but that’s about it. Can I still recover my photos?

    • MJ Post authorReply

      Hi Win,
      yes you can certainly recover the photos but do understand that this is a paid software but you can try the trial version before you actually purchase the premium version.

    I have purchased the recovery program but cannot get past the trial version. I have an LG but find the program can only be used for Samsung. I have deleted photographs in error. What next?

      Hi Gerald,
      Nope this is not just for Samsung… This software will work with all device which works on latest version of android.
