How to Recover Data on Android via Recuva Alternatives

Posted by Aimee , Sep 04, 2020

"Before I bought the Xiaomi phone, I used the iPhone 8 mobile phone. So I don't know much about Android. Yesterday, I accidentally deleted the Camera folder on the phone. This is a mistake.
If it is an iPhone, I can restore data for the iPhone via cloud backup files. Unfortunately, I have never backed up files on my Android phone. The Android device does not have an external storage card, so all data is stored on the phone. I plan to try Recuva. Can it be used on Xiaomi?
In addition, Recuva may not be the best Android data recovery tool. Are there other better alternatives to Recuva? Any help will be greatly appreciated. "
Recuva is a free file recovery program originally developed by Piriform. However, it can only be used on Windows. Not applicable to operating systems such as Android, iOS, macOS, or Linux. Therefore, there is no Android version of Recuva. The user guide claiming that Recuva can retrieve data from Android is misleading. If you urgently need this free data recovery tool, Recuva can only help users recover data from mobile SD cards but cannot directly extract data from Android devices. We have recently found several alternatives to Recuva for Android. You will be able to get tips from this article.
