Nothing is more annoying, to music lovers at least when you find that one or more of your favorite songs is missing from your playlist. You check to see if it’s the player that is messing with you but no, the file is actually gone. This can happen for lots of reasons chief among them being accidental deletion. If you had a backup of all your music, then the solution is as easy as simply restoring the backup. But if you didn’t, you need an alternative.

In this article we are going to be looking at the best way to recover lost music files on your Android device. Let’s begin with where music files are stored on your device.

Part 1: Where is Music Saved on Android Device?

Most people will either store music on their device’s storage or on an external SD card. The choice typically depends on where you want to store your music files as well as how many music files you have. If you have a large collection of music files, then it makes sense to store the files on an SD card. There should be a folder on both your device’s storage and the SD card that is labeled “Music.”

Part 2: How to Recover Deleted Music Files from Android?

There are so many data recovery tools in the market but by far the best is Dr.Fone - Data Recovery (Android).

Part 3: How to Prevent Music from Deleting on Your Android Device?

Sometimes your music files can disappear from your device out of no fault on your part. Maybe it was due to damage to your device or a software update that didn’t go according to plan. But there are ways that you can prevent data loss of any kind, not just music. The following are a few things you can do:

  • We know that you hear this a lot, but the best way to prevent data loss is to have a backup. Therefore it is very important that you regularly update your backups. It may not hurt to have a copy of your music library on your computer.
  • Before you undertake any software update or rooting procedure, backup all the data on your device, you never know what may happen.
  • As much as you can, avoid letting children play with your device. Many accidental deletion incidents are caused by children tapping the wrong option.
  • If you want to keep your Deezer music, you can also download Deezer music, and save it on your computer or smartphone.

As important as backups are, they are never completely foolproof. But thanks to Dr.Fone for Android, now you have a solution for those rare times when you lose music files that are not on any of your backups.
