Restoring Deleted Files on Ipad and IPhone

Unlike Android phones and PCs that have an internal memory, the data on iPhones and iPads is stored directly in the internal memory of the device. This makes it a little more difficult for users to restore or recover lost files for the users of those programs.

Yes, it is possible to restore data if you backed up your device, from iTunes, but let’s face it: who has the time and patience to backup the phone every day? It is not important how you lose data. This happens, and the fact that you can recover it with some smart solutions.

The forums are discouraging. If you have the curiosity to read a forum about lost data on Apple devices, you will be disappointed by the number of people saying that it can’t be done. This statement was true in the past, but as this became an important and stringent problem for owners, the software developers strived to offer reliable solutions lately. One of those solutions is Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS, an app that can be downloaded in a free trial version for Windows and Mac. An iPhone app on Windows? Well, many of us have iPhones and iPads, but we still prefer the old-fashioned Windows for our PCs, so it is normal to have an application on our Windows Desktop that allows us to recover data from Apple devices.

Recovering from iTunes

We already discussed the possibility to recover files from iTunes when you have backup. It can be done in several ways, but the simplest of them is to use Dr Fone for that. The program has the option Recover from iTunes Backup File. Once you start it, you need to hit Start Scan, and the program will try to find all the files of the respective restore point. You can choose the exact files that you want to recover, and that is it! The Recover command will put the files back in their original place. You even have the possibility to select what type of files you want to save. The files are divided into categories, under a tree structure: you have messages, call history, notes, and even reminders that can be recovered with a click.
