Pitfalls to Avoid in DIY Tablet Data Recovery
When you have trouble with your tablet, whether it's an Android tablet by Samsung, an Amazon Kindle, an iPad, or any other smart tablet, your first reaction is to pray to the almighty Google. With the Internet’s help, you’re well on your way to figuring out what’s wrong with your tablet and what you can do from the comfort of your own home.
But when you go the do-it-yourself route, beware. One slip-up and you can easily render that data you’re trying to recover even harder to retrieve. Or you could even erase it for good!
If you need to recover deleted photos from Android internal storage (or from any other kind of tablet), follow these three steps:
- Only use data recovery software that installs to your PC, not the tablet itself.
- Turn Wi-Fi off.
- Do not use your tablet for any reason while attempting data recovery.
Once you delete files off of your tablet, those files don’t necessarily immediately vanish. Your tablet marks the data as “empty space” free to be used. As you download new data to your tablet—even app updates and temp files—and as you create new files (e.g., taking new photos and videos, recording audio, etc.) your tablet looks for somewhere to put that data. Uh-oh—those files you deleted count as “somewhere” now.
If you need to recover files from a tablet…
When does tablet data recovery software work?
When Do You Need Professional Tablet Data Recovery Services?
You need professional tablet data recovery services if you need photos, documents, or other types of data recovered from your phone that won’t turn on and you cannot gain access with tablet data recovery software.
Broken tablets can be difficult to recover data from without professional tools and techniques, especially when they’re too damaged to be turned on. This damage can happen due to excessive physical force, excessive exposure to water and other liquids, or other severe scenarios. The internal storage medium may also degrade and die over time. However, given how quickly we tend to trade in our smart devices for newer models, this is an uncommon scenario.
How do we recover data from a tablet?
The data on your tablet lives in a small flash memory chip buried deep inside the phone. In many cases, this flash memory chip can be accessed without dismantling the tablet using Gillware's powerful data recovery tools. Our software includes powerful analytical tools head and shoulders above any consumer-available or free tablet data recovery software in the world.
However, in some circumstances, to recover data from a broken tablet, our engineers must carefully remove this chip from the tablet's logic board. This procedure requires painstaking electrical engineering work. After all, this part of your tablet is not meant to come off. A strong epoxy holds it in place.
For the few tablet data recovery cases we see in our lab in which these steps are necessary, this is the most challenging part of the data recovery process.
Once we've removed your tablet flash memory chip, our technicians place it in a specially-designed chip reader. We read its contents using our custom data recovery software designed by our own data recovery engineers.
Many models of tablets have removable storage as well. MicroSD cards can sometimes stop working or have their contents deleted, without any of the data being recoverable by widely-available tools. This is where our SD card data recovery experts come in.
