Recover Deleted Files from LG Phone with MiniTool Mobile Recovery
Way 1: Retrieve Data from LG Phone with MiniTool

If you want to recover the deleted data from your LG phone & SD card, I suggest using the MiniTool software.

If you want to recover deleted files from the SD card of your LG phone, you can use “Recover from SD-Card” module of MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android. At the same time, there are two more choices for you to do this work: MiniTool Power Data Recovery and MiniTool Photo Recovery. Just use the Free Editions of these programs to have a try first.

I will just show you how to use MiniTool Mobile Recovery to deal with the cases, as MiniTool Power Data Recovery can also solve the problem in most cases.

Case 1: How to retrieve deleted files from LG phone directly

This dedicated LG mobile recovery tool – MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android enables you to detect all the data on your LG phone including the deleted files which are not overwritten by new data.

Here, you need to note that, no matter which LG data recovery software you are using, you have to root your Android phone in advance. Otherwise, the software will be unable to visit your LG phone and detect all the data on the device. MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android is not an exception. So, please guarantee that you have rooted your LG phone before. If not, please follow this article to do this job: How to Root Your Android Device?

Meanwhile, to guarantee the normal operation of this software, you need to close any other Android management software during the operation process.

It is very easy to use this module to retrieve your deleted files from LG phone directly.

Step 1: You need to connect your LG phone to the computer and then open the software to enter its main interface. Next, click on “Recover from Phone“.

Step 2: You will skip this “Identify your Device” step unless the USB debugging of your LG phone has not been enabled and you have not allowed USB debugging from the computer you are going to use. If you encounter the following two interfaces, you should follow the prompts to complete the operation, and then you will enter the next step automatically.

Step 3: In this step, you will see the supported recoverable data types and two scan methods. Here, I will make a simple explanation:

1. “Quick Scan” method is available to recover your deleted text data, such as messages, contacts, call histories, and WhatsApp messages & documents. You are allowed to uncheck the unnecessary text data types if you want to.

2. “Deep Scan” method will scan the entire LG phone and more data including text data and media data will be detected and recovered. It will cost you a lot of time. And you are unable to uncheck yourself.

Just choose one scan method according to your own situation and then press “Next” button to continue. Here, I take “Deep Scan” as an example.


Step 4: After the scan process, you will enter the scan result interface as shown below. On the left side of this interface, you will see the data type list. You can choose one data type from the list and view the items one by one in this interface. For example, you want to recover the deleted photos from your LG phone, you can click on “Camera“, “Screenshot“, “App Picture” and “Picture” accordingly from the left list and then check the photos you want to recover. After that, you need to click on “Recover” button to continue.

Step 5: The software will pop out a small window with the software default storage path. You can choose to click on “Recover” button to save the selected files to that location directly. Of course, you can also click on “Browse” button to choose another path on your computer to save these files.

If you choose to recover more than 10 files with this free software, you will be refused to complete LG data recovery. You can upgrade this freeware to an advanced version and then retrieve the deleted data without limitations.
