Data Recovery 2020: A Complete Guide
Recover data from a Huawei phone
The reason for the loss of photos or video from a mobile device can be: intentional or accidental formatting of the memory card, virus infection, improper operation of programs, failure, clearing the memory in order to free up space.
Mobile phones or smartphones store their data in two ways: in the device’s internal memory or on a memory card.
Recovering data from the internal memory of a Huawei phone
How to recover data that is deleted from the internal memory of a mobile device?
There are enough applications to recover photos or videos from the internal memory of an Android device in the Play Market. But, all of them require Root-rights (or Super-user rights) for their work. Because of this, many difficulties arise: it is the need to root the device and enable the debugging mode via USB, which is carefully hidden by the developers.
Some applications provide the ability to recover data from the internal memory of devices without Root rights (or Super user rights). But the quality of data recovery with their help will be significantly lower.
Recovering data from a memory card
How to recover data that is deleted from the memory card of a mobile device?
If your data was stored on a memory card, in this case:
1. Remove the memory card from your device and connect it to a computer or laptop using a card reader.
Note. In some cases, you can use a smartphone or tablet connected with a cable as a card reader. But keep in mind that data recovery programs may not always see a memory card connected to the computer in this way. There are reasons for this.
2. After the memory card appears in the “This computer” folder, start Hetman partition recovery. The program will automatically scan the PC and display all the connected hard drives and removable storage media, physical and local drives.
3. Find among them the right one. that is, your memory card. Click on it and select the type of analysis.

For starters, you can try to do Quick scan. After all, it runs faster and saves a directory tree (folder and file structure). Wait for the scan to complete.
As a result, the program will display all files that can be restored. The red cross marks those that are deleted.
Select the desired method of saving files and the folder, and click “Restore.”
Click the “Restore” button and the files will be saved to the specified folder.
If for some reason the program does not find the desired deleted file on the scanned memory card, then:
Click on function Deep Scan. Using in-depth analysis, the program will search for deleted photos and video files by signature, that is, by the contents of the files.
This is a more complex and lengthy process than Quick Scan. Therefore, it will take more time. But, if the reason for losing your data is not just deleting it, but formatting or crashing the memory card, then this method will be more effective.
The process of saving the files detected using the “Deep Analysis” is the same as with the “Quick Scan”.
