Step 3: Enable USB Debugging on Your Android (optional)

Don't worry this is easy and can improve text recovery rates.

The program will show you what to do on your phone. This will grant the software additional access to the memory on your phone. You might want to disable this again afterwards for security.

Step 4: Scan the Android Handset

Follow the options on screen to scan your Android handset for deleted data. Ideally make sure that your phone has enough battery to stay on throughout the scan (suggested 20%).

You can enable "Deep Scan" mode to look harder for deleted data but it can take longer. This is suggested if you don't find anything on the first scan or you need to retrieve messages from a while ago.
