    Hi, My Mi phone is not restarting and when i took it to a repair shop, they said its a software issue and all the data is lost. they will install a new software, will i still be able to get the data lost after reinstalling a new software to the phone? by the above process? Kindly help.

    • MJ Post authorReply

      Hi Shri,
      Yes you will get it but do ensure that you start with the recovery process as soon as you install the software. If you continue using your device then the chance of the old data getting erased gets high.
      Let me know if you need any help.
