Note: There is no limit to the number of times this process can be carried out. It can be done as much time as you want. This software is not limited to Android smartphones but can be used on computers.

It has a friendly user interface that looks like a file explorer on a smartphone. The only constraint is that you must root your phone. On the bright side, all the files you need can be recovered.

DiskDrill also allows you to save the scan session to enable you to pick up from where you left off. It has a feature that allows you to sort files by hidden, non-hidden and also the files you are looking for (pictures, video, audio, and document).


However, DiskDrill comes in two packages, the free version allows you to make a scan of your device and it makes sure that it’s possible to recover the files you want but restricts the recovery process, while the pro version allows you to complete the recovery process.
