Brief Introduction to Samsung Galaxy Data Recovery


When a "delete" is performed, only the space that the file occupies is marked as blank and can be reused by new files, but the deleted file will be still there until new data overwrites it. Hence, if you've deleted some files accidently from Samsung Galaxy or find some important files are missing, you still can recover them with the help of Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android (desktop software) - a professional Samsung Galaxy Data Recovery tool that will help you get deleted text messages, contacts, photos, videos, and more from Samsung Galaxy. Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Ace and multiple phones are supported. Check to see whether your phone is in the list or not.

If you're using your Samsung Galaxy checking the information, please stop it and switch to a Windows computer. While you're using your Galaxy, new data will be generated and that will make deleted files on your phone gone forever. Use a Windows PC to download the Samsung Galaxy Recovery software to get deleted files back. The sooner the better.

Solution 2: How to Restore Deleted WhatsApp Messages on Samsung Galaxy (free but risky)

Though WhatsApp chat history is not stored on the official server, backups are automatically made on your phoneevery day at 4.am. The backup files are store on the microSD memory card of your Samsung Galaxy. After deleting WhatsApp Messages on your Samsung Galaxy, you can uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp to see whether you can retrieve these deleted WhatsApp messages or not. During the process of reinstallation, a prompt will ask you to restore you message history. You must need to click Restore to restore the missing chats.

Note:
1) if no prompt appear, it means you can recover deleted WhatsApp messages on your Samsung Galaxy any more, becuase your SD card chat history backup file is either corrupted or the backup file is too old to use.
2) When restoring WhatsApp messages on Samsung Galaxy, the current messages will be lost. And there are only up to 7 days worth of backup files, though after restoring WhatsApp chat history, you may not get the message you want.
3) If you're lucky enough, by using this way you can retrieve deleted WhatsApp messages. If you failed, then there is no way to recover the deleted whatsapp messages, even with the best recovery software - Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android, because the deleted WhatsApp messages on your Samsung Galaxy might have been overwritten by new data.

Tips & Tricks: How to backup WhatsApp messages on Samsung Galaxy

I've mentioned above that WhatsApp messages can be automatically backed up every day. And the backup file is stored on your phone's memory. However, to avoid losing WhatsApp messages, you might need to backup them manually:

1. Launch WhatsApp on your phone. Click the menu button > Settings > Chat Settings.
2.Tap Backup Conversations.

If you need to export a conversation to your computer to send to somebody else, use email to send it: tap and hold on the conversation > select Email conversation.

Sorry to tell you that I have not found any way to transfer recovered SMS back to Samsung. Anyway, you can view them on your computer or you can choose the print them out.

How can I export the recovered sms back onto my samsung s4?

Sure, but it depends on the phone you're using. Anyway, to learn whether it can be used for your Android devices or not, you just need to download the program and try it.

In this case, you need to root your phone first and this Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android to recover files later. On the website, http://forum.xda-developers.com/, tutorial for how to root phones are introduced.
