Most of us have lost our phone’s data in one way or another. There are times when people accidentally lose their data.

In this post, we will provide an in-depth tutorial for you to perform Samsung Galaxy S7 edge data recovery in no time.

Part 1: Why the deleted data can still be recovered?

A lot of people think that data files once deleted from an Android phone can’t be recovered. Needless to say, this is a highly misinterpreted concept. Whenever a file is deleted from your device, it isn’t removed immediately. For all the files stored in your phone’s memory, there is a directory (of pointers) that keeps a track of these files. Whenever a file is deleted, the pointer that was allocated to it gets free and is assigned to something else. The data remains intact in the memory for a while.

Therefore, if you perform an immediate recovery, then you can easily retrieve it back. It is only after when you store new information on your device, the original data gets overwritten by something else. Henceforth, if you wish to get desirable results from Samsung S7 data recovery, then you should be quite prompt and tech-savvy.
