How to Recover Deleted Files from Samsung Tablet

Why deleted files on Samsung tablet can be retrieved

When deleting files bypassing recycle bin or trash on a computer, you still can get them back if the hard drive where deleted files stayed isn't overwritten by new files. Similarly, you also can recover deleted files from Samsung tablets, like photos, video, contacts, and messages. When you deleted them, they become invisible, but only the place they occupied  is marked as reusable for new files. Deleted files can be really erased only when overwriting happens. Hence, you can recover contacts, messages, photos and videos deleted by mistake.
