Smartphones have opened up the opportunity to take pictures on the fly, chat with friends or colleagues, and even quickly capture a video when needed. Along with these great advancements has come the issue of losing or accidentally deleting these items from your phone. If you currently use a Samsung Galaxy S5 to capture or store important videos, then a little additional protection is needed for those unexpected instances where something disappears.
Losing videos or an accidental deletion is a heart wrenching experience, as it is difficult to know how to get this information back from an Android phone or device. One option is to use a recovery tool designed for various types of data retrieval on these devices. Dr.Fone for Android is a great option to keep handy during these unexpected circumstances. If you have recently lost or accidentally remove one or more videos from a Samsung Galaxy S5, then Dr.Fone can help!
This utility may be used to locate and restore one, multiple, or all deleted items from your smartphone or an Android tablet. How does it work? When a file is deleted or lost on any device, it is not physically removed, but rather overwritten. The location information sits in an address table, which the operating system uses to open and display the information. However, if this address is lost or deleted, the file appears to be gone. A recovery tool is able to scan for these items and restore them from the device.
