  • Amy

    Awesome! Good program!

    • Thanks for your feedback. Glad our software helps you

  • We have confidence in our software. And we think we can make the software support new Android system in a short time after it is released.

  • Jessica

    Is there a limit to recover lost photos,videos with your software, for example, 1GB file one time? I put a lot of short videos and photos about my family in my new S8, but unfortunately, they are deleted by my little daughter.

    • Hi. Jessica. Sorry to hear that. But we have not yet test a limit on the software when it recovers data. So, just try it to restore your photos and videos, if there is a limit, tell us. Enjoy your use. Note: Do not add new files to your phone, or your deleted files will be in danger.

  • Lisa

    So, why did you recommend the second software to retrieve deleted photos from Samsung Galaxy S8 memory card? I tried the first one, it can do the job as well. I want to get back lost photos from the SD card in the phone. Please tell me why. Thanks.

    • Windows Data Recovery can recover more than 550 types of files, including but not limited to photos, videos, documents, Excel, PDF, etc., while Android Data Recovery is not that powerful. If you only need to restore photos and videos from Galaxy S8 internal memory and the SD card, Android data recovery is better, for it can recover contacts, text messages, etc. which Windows Data Recovery cannot do.

  • Mike

    Hi, after I download your software and try to connect my S8 to the program, it asks me to root the phone. Are you sure rooting the phone will not cause data loss?

    • Hi, Mike. Do not worry about rooting, it does not cause data. I am quite sure about that. Go ahead.

  • Rose

    Not receive the key after I purchased the software, please help.

    • IN ten minutes, you will receive the key. Please be patient.

    • Patricia

      How long did you wait before you received the key? I meet the same problem now.

  • Ivy

    I am happy to purchase your software because I want to recover deleted some photos from my Samsung Galaxy S8 +, but I am afraid my photos are overwritten by some new texts and calls because I sent some text messages and made some calls after I find some precious photos were gone. Does that matter?

    • Hi, IVY. Thanks for your question. But do not worry about your texts and phone calls, they are small in volume, and they may occupy little data. Most of your deleted photos should be safe.

  • Bruce

    Really helpful. Thanks.

  • Jessica

    • Robert

      Did you purchase the software? I am using the free version, but it seems not able to recover any photos. Do I have to purchase before I can use it to recover deleted photos from my Samsung Galaxy S8 +?

      • Cynthia S. Francis

        Sure. The free version cannot recover lost photos, which has limited features compared to the full version.

    Purchased your software, but not receive the licence. Please help.

  • Ken Roberts

    I accidentally deleted 2 “Stories” from the Gallery on my Galaxy S8, not realizing the videos shot those days would be deleted. Tried your app and the Kingo Root, both failed. This is an AT&T phone. Any help would be a huge blessing!

    • Hi Ken. Please hold, we will try to find a solution and tell you soon. Thank you.

      • Ken Roberts

        I hope you can help, I am crushed I have lost these videos!

        • Hi , Ken. I am sorry but we cannot root the AT&T S8. Maybe you need to search on Google for solutions.

          • Ken Roberts

            I have tried but the only thing found refers me to your software. Thanks for checking. Now I know to NOT delete the “Stories” in the Gallery app, it deletes the pics as well.
