Galaxy Note 5 Data Recovery: Recover Data on Samsung Note 5

Why Need to Do Data Recovery for Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Data files saved on the mobile phones (such as Samsung Galaxy Note 5) are vulnerable, and there are many reasons that may cause data loss on your phone, like the faulty update, virus attacks, system corruption and so on. But you don’t need to worry too much about it. After reading this article, you will find it easy to get back the data you lost.

In the first place, you need a professional data recovery tool – Galaxy Note 5 Data Recovery for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to help you. The tool I highly recommend is the Dr.Fone Toolkit – Android Data Recovery, which is a professional recovery tool for all kinds of Android devices including the mobile phones and the tablets, such as Samsung Note 5. You can use it to recover the text messages, Whatsapp history, contacts, videos, photos, audio files, and documents. It can directly scan the internal storage space of your Android device, but it is safe so that you have no need to worry about the divulgence of personal information.

Here is a step-to-step Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Data Recovery tutorial for your reference.

Step 1. Download and install this Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Data Recovery application on your computer. And it is noticeable that there are two versions of this application both for the Windows users and the Mac users. You’d better pay attention to that.

Step 2. Connect your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to your computer. And on your phone, follow the instructions below to enable the “USB Debugging” mode.

Step 3. Once you finish enabling, you can prepare for the scanning process now. Just click “Next” after your phone is detected by this application. And, you need to make sure that the battery is well charged, or at least it is not less than 20 %.

Step 4. Then, you can start to select the item or items that you want to recover. Also, you can choose “Select All” if necessary. But, if you only want to recover a few kinds of data, you’d better choose the item separately to save time. From “Scan for Deleted files” and “Scan for All files” choose one mode that you like. The later can make the scanning deeper so it takes more time. After you finish settings before scanning, make it start to scan.

Step 5. You can preview all the items of scanning results. And you can choose to recover all of the items or just some of them after preview. If you have made your choice, tap on the “Recover” button and choose a destination for the recovered data.
