For a second, just give it a thought that you have captured fantastic moments with your smart phone, and it gets broken accidentally.
Have you ever broken or cracked your Smartphone's screen and failed to find a way to get data and media off the device? Or the data gets wiped accidentally? Worried? Well, you are at the right place then. 

What happens is when images are erased or formatted from your device, they are not forever lost. Just the space occupied is marked for reuse for new files, and you can still recover them. Moreover, there's, even more, the possibility of recovering data from a broken device using a data recovery and extraction software.

FoRecovery Android Data Extraction Review
Fortunately, today we're here to help you restore all those precious images, videos, and files from your broken or damaged Samsung Galaxy phone using the FORecovery Data Extraction Software. So, without any more discussion, let's get started.

Getting Started

FORecovery is a leading software company which provides data recovery and extraction software for Samsung Smartphones, other Android Smartphones, and iPhones as well. The FORecovery Data Extraction tool that we’re going to review today specializes in restoring photos, videos, contacts, documents, chats, and other important data and media files.

The need occurred when I accidentally dropped my Samsung Galaxy S6 on the floor and sadly, the screen got shattered. However, the phone is still booting up, but it doesn’t display anything on the screen. With so many important documents, and private photos, videos that I didn’t backup on the cloud.

Lucky for me, the software worked efficiently in multiple situations like if your smartphone is damaged from water, black screen, touch not responding or bricked devices during upgrades. Moreover, you can also extract data from the locked device after forgotten passwords.

Setup and Installation

Even though the company offers so many premium tools, it also provides the free trial for most of its data recovery tools. You can download the Data Extraction tool for Android free from the official FORecovery website. Currently, the tool exclusively supports Samsung smartphones.

The free trial is available for both Windows and Mac Powered systems and supports the latest Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP and Mac OS X 10.7 and later versions.

After downloading, FORecovery Android Data Extraction tool, the installation process only takes up few minutes and requires minimum specifications from your PC or MacBook. 

The Recovery Guide

After installing, open the Android Data Extraction tool and in the middle of the software and connect your Samsung Galaxy smartphone to the system via the USB cable. If you're able to see any notification on your phone requiring USB debugging allowance, just tap on “OK” to move on.

Select the files you want to recover, and there are eight sub-formats that you can select and restore, like Contacts, Call history, WhatsApp messages, Messaging, & attachments, Gallery, Audio, Video, and relevant documents.
