Wondershare Data Recovery Review: Recover Lost Files On Windows PC

Managing our digital data in today's computer era has become a challenge. It doesn't matter how we manage it, most of the times we loose our precious files. Sometimes it happens that the computer crashes and the entire hard drive gets wiped. An unknown viruses formatted the computer hard drive and you lost all the files. You were upgrading the computer's OS and accidently deleted the partition where all your files were stored. While carrying the hard drive you dropped it and a sudden mechanical shock wiped the hard disk.

Once the data is lost it cannot be easily recovered. But most people treat this situation as final. But actually data can be recovered from a wiped hard drive. Deleting the data means only removing the references. When the OS doesn't find any valid reference to that file it considers it as deleted. But the file still exists on the hard drive without a reference. When you copy new file to the disk then the deleted file will be overwritten. In this case it can't be recovered. So it is advised not to copy new files to the hard drive when its partitions get wiped. Because if you continuously writing new files then old files will get replaced and get corrupted. If this happens the chances of file recovery will be greatly reduced.

Wondershare Data Recovery Review: Recover Lost Files On Windows PC

Wondershare Data Recovery is a data recovery software for Microsoft Windows which provides in depth file recovery options on almost all types of storage devices. With this recovery software you can recover your deleted photos, music, videos, emails, office documents and files having unknown extensions. Unlike other recovery software Wondershare provides scanning the lost partitions which are not user accessible.

If you are not sure which partition to scan for deleted files then there is also an option to scan the whole computer. Before starting a lost file scan Wondershare Data Rec will ask you to enable 'Deep Scan' which will scan every bit of the hard drive to get the deleted files. However this function takes lot more time then the normal scanning. For a successful recovery rate you should enable 'Deep Scan'. Deep Scanning the computer may take hours so you don't need to sit in front of your PC all the time.  Below is a tutorial on using this software.

  • Download Wondershare Data  Recovery. The trial version only recovers 100 MB of data but if you want to fully use the software then buy pro version.
  • After installing open it. You will be asked to select a file type. Select the file type which you want to recover.
  • If you want to recover all files then select 'All File Types'. Then click 'Next'.
  • Then select the location which you want to scan for deleted files. Click browse and choose the location.
  • You can select 'Recycle Bin', 'Desktop', 'Removable Drives' or your entire computer. If you can't see hard drive partitions then select 'I can't find my partitions'. Then select the desired partition volume to scan.
  • After selecting the location click 'Next'. The put a check in 'Enable Deep Scan' and also check 'Enable RAW File Recovery' if you are recovering photos. Then click 'Start' to begin scanning.
  • Deep Scanning take several hours to scan the entire computer and will greatly depend on storage size. 
  • When the scan finishes it will show you list of files. On the left pane you can select the file types.
  • Files with a green dot can only be recovered. Click on any file to see its preview.
  • To recover a single file right click on it and select 'Recover highlighted' then select the recovery location either C, D, E or F drive. Finally click 'Recover'.
  • Now go to the recovery location and find a folder named 'Data Recovery' followed by current date. Open this folder, it will contain sub folders. Keep opening the folders unless you see your recovered files.
  • You can recover all other file types by following the above procedure. 

Wondershare Data Recovery Pros

  • Easy to use user interface.
  • Allow scanning of lost partitions.
  • Can scan the computer's desktop and recycle bin.
  • Provides an easy approach to recover lost photos, videos, emails, documents and unknown file types.
  • Supports majority of storage devices like hard drives, flash drives, SDcards, removable drives and digital camera.
  • Allows you to pause the recovery so that you can turn off the PC and later resume it. It will ask you to save the current scan before closing the program.
  • Supports FAT16, FAT32, exFAT and NTFS file systems.

Wondershare Data Recovery Cons

It recover files according to their actual storage location. So when you access the file after recovery you will need to open multiple sub folders. This creates a long directory of recovered files. Deep Scan may take hours to finish but it crucial since you are recovering a larger amount of data and data recovery is not just like twisting a magic wand to get the deleted files back. You can always pause the scan and resume it later. This feature is currently present in Wondershare Data Recovery only. Another cons is that the trial version only recovers 100 MB of data.

Is It Worth Buying Wondershare Data Recovery

If you ask a professional data recovery company then they may charge you anywhere between $1000-$1500 for recovering lost data on a 50 GB hard drive. It is too expensive, but they assure you 100% recovery of files even damaged files. But if you can't spend that much money then yes I can say that Wondershare Data Recovery is worth buying.

The 1 year license for this software costs only $29.95 for 1 PC and a lifetime license can be purchased for 1 PC at just $39.95 and they support all major payment options. It also comes with 30 day money back guarantee.

WhatsApp Security Code Has Changed: What Does This Mean

Recently WhatsApp came with the end-to-end encryption feature. Now messages, calls and files sent on WhatsApp are by default encrypted. To avail this security feature you should update the app to its latest version. After updating, encryption will be automatically activated. Now sometimes you may see a notification message in the chat that your "contact's security code changed". If you are seeing this message then you may be thinking that why does it appear in the chat. Did you do something wrong? Or does it signify that your WhatsApp encryption has stopped working.

Whatsapp security code chnaged

Well, whenever this notification appears in any chat section then this means that your friend or the person whom you are chatting with has re-installed WhatsApp. Which means that the old security key that was shared between you and your WhatsApp contact has changed. This key is only the visible version of the actual key that always remains a secret. The security code can be compared between two contacts either by scanning a QR code or matching the 60 digit number.

How To Scan WhatsApp Security Code

If you are getting the "contact's security code changed" notification then you shouldn't worry. WhatsApp will automatically adapt the new security key and therefore your chats with other contacts will become encrypted again. However, if you want to confirm this action then you can scan the new security code. To scan the code follow the steps below.

  • Go to profile information of that contact. Here tap 'Encryption'.
  • A code will be generated.
  • Now ask your friend to open your profile information on his/her WhatsApp.
  • At this point both contacts should be displaying the QR code.
  • Now tap 'SCAN CODE' from any phone.
  • If scanning is not possible then you can share the code. The user with whom you shared the code should match the 60 digit number.
  • This code is unique for every WhatsApp contact and will not work for others.

Wondershare MobileGo Review: Manage Your Android Phone With Ease

Android is known for setting new trends. There were times when phones used to have very low internal storage. At that time we relied on microSD cards for storing our data that we want to access through our phones. But today android phones feature larger internal storage. The most common storage configuration for any android phone is 16 GB. Out of which we can access around 10 GB to store our data.

Android's internal storage is very different from mass storage. Years ago with the launch of android 4.0 Google removed the mass storage mode for security reasons. Now on today's phone we can only access the internal storage as portable storage and can only use the copy/paste function. Accessing the internal information is not available without special apps or tools like we can't directly copy or create a backup of an installed app.

If you mostly store your data on your phone's internal storage then you should always have a backup of it. Without a backup you will not be able to recover your data in the case when your phone stops working or you did a factory reset. In this case you can't even recover files from the phone because the for that you have to root your phone and use a recovery software to recover files from the internal storage. During this process your phone's memory will perform read/write operations and most of the data will be gone for forever.

But managing a large data backup is really a pain when you need to find files and copy them to and fro from the phone. Basically we only have backups of our photos, videos and files. But we never take backup of installed apps, call logs, SMS messages and contacts. These files can't be directly copied from the phone. For this you will need an android manager software.

Wondershare MobileGo Review: Manage Your Android Phone With Ease

Wondershare MobileGo is such an android manager that you can install on your Windows PC and manage apps, contacts, storage, files and multimedia on your android phone. It is the best utility for your android phone that lets you take entire backup of your phone except the OS and later restore it. Below is a brief review of Wondershare MobileGo for Microsoft Windows.

There are two set of important functions that are present in this android manager software. One is the 'My Device' which includes basic functions like app backup, SMS backup, multimedia backup and file backup. Another is the 'Super Toolkit' which includes one click root, mirror go, data recovery, data eraser, one click backup and restore, de-duplicate contacts, install apps, import outlook contacts and send SMS.

  • Download Wondershare MobileGo and install it on your PC. It comes with 15 days trial and later you can purchase it.
  • On your android go to 'Developer options' and enable 'USB debugging'.
  • Launch the program on your PC and connect your phone via USB. Let the program identify your phone.
  • On successful connection you will be able to manage your apps, contacts, sms, music, photos, videos and files all at one place.
  • Using the manager doesn't require any special skills and is self explanatory which provides step by step instructions to get the things done.
  • Suppose you want to backup your photos or export them to PC. Then tap the photos tab on the left pane in Wondershare MobileGo. Select the photos which you want to copy to PC. Finally click 'Export'. Its so easy.

Wondershare Mobile Go Important Features

1. One-Click Root: Wondershare MobileGo also provides some important features like one click root. If you want to root your phone then you can safely do this. You don't need to download any third party apps or use ADB. Its so easy.

2. Data Recovery: Recovering lost data from android phone's internal storage is not easy. Because it requires root level access. But MobileGo can easily help you recover your lost contacts, SMS, photos, videos and other files from the internal storage. You just need to go to the 'Super Toolkit' and download the 'Data Recovery' component.

3. Data Eraser: Whenever you want to sell or donate your phone then it is a wise decision to wipe it completely. But wiping only removes file references and actual data can be recovered in most cases. One way to properly wipe your phone is to first encrypt it then do a factory reset. But this process is time consuming and encryption can take hours on an android phone. But Wondershare MobileGo will do this for you within few minutes. After securely erasing your phone's internal storage you can either donate it, sell it or just throw it away. It's so simple again.

3. Android Screen Recording: A built in software component known as 'MirrorGo' lets you record your phone's screen. This also has to be downloaded from 'Super Toolkit' section.

4. Install Apps From PC: If you have stored android apps on your PC then after installing the Wondershare MobileGo you will see an android icon on every app. Clicking on this icon will ask you to install the app from PC to phone. It can also install the app on sdcard if allowed by the phone's OS.

5. Transfer Data Between Phones: You can make an entire copy of your existing data from one phone to another. 'Phone Transfer' lets you transfer data between phones regardless of their make or network.

6. Transfer Data From Android Phone To PC: You can transfer your data from your android phone to PC in just few clicks. You can copy entire files like music, photos, and videos. You can even backup android apps and their data to PC. Later you can restore them from the backup.

Verdict

Overall Wondershare MobileGo is the best manager for android phones. It has some very useful features like the built in data recovery, data backup and restore, record android screen, manage complete android storage with ease. All these features come in one software. It supports around majority of android phones including Samsung, HTC, Sony, Huawei, Google Nexus, Lenovo, and LG. Even android 2.3 phones are supported.

I highly recommend this software if you want to manage your android phone on an expert level but want to save your time and money. By using Wondershare MobileGo you are actually securing your phone's data from accidental deletions. Because when you have the backup then you can restore it on almost every new phone.

Use it in trial mode then go on purchasing it for just $24.95 for one year or you can purchase a lifetime license for only $29.95. To purchase go here. It comes with 30-day money back guarantee.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Not Charging: How To Fix

Galaxy S7 is the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung which is IP68 certified. An IP68 certified android smartphone is dust proof and water resistant. Most people get it wrong when we talk about water proof and water resistant. Both are different features. A water proof phone can't be damaged even put under water for a long time. While water resistant phones can only resist water based damage for up to 30 minutes. Galaxy S7 is water resistant over 1.5 meter and 30 minutes.

galaxy s7 not charging

This means that your Galaxy S7 is pretty safe from water spills and is also safe when it gets submerged in water. Your Galaxy S7 has an ability to prevent damage cause by water. Since it can't easily get inside the phone's circuits because the phone is completely sealed. But do note that the micro USB charging port of Galaxy S7 can give charging related problems when it gets wet.

When there is water or moisture on the charging port then Galaxy S7 will return a "Moisture has been detected" message on the screen when you connect the charger. In this case the phone doesn't charge to prevent electrical damages to the phone's circuit board. This is a build in safety feature.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Not Charging: How To Fix

It is uncommon for your phone to not charge on connecting the charger. When this happens you should immediately disconnect the charger to prevent any damages. Its a sign that moisture is still present on the charging port since the time you had dropped it in water and forgot to dry it. In this case Galaxy S7 will notify you.

If this happens then your phone will not charge and it is unusual to do so. Because moisture and electric charge from the charger can seriously damage your phone. It may damage the battery because charging the phone from a moist port can make the battery very hot. Wireless charging is not affected by moisture but in case you do not have any wireless charger then you have to fix the problem as soon as possible.

It is also not necessary that moisture being always responsible. Other problems may arise like defective charger, defective USB cable or defective phone. In this case you should check the charger first whether it is working on other phones or not. Also check the USB cable. If everything is okay then sometimes restarting a Galaxy S7 also fixes charging related problems.

Basically moisture doesn't deposit on the charging port under normal room temperature. But it may happen that you dropped the phone in water and forgot to dry it completely. Moisture may also deposit if your phone is sitting idle in a cool room whose temperature has gone below normal.

How To Dry A Wet Charging Port On Galaxy S7

  • Do not use any object to clean the port as it may damage it.
  • Simply shake the device to remove any water droplets.
  • You can also blow air to remove moisture.

The moisture on the charging port will automatically dry out on its own within a day. So till the time you can use a wireless charger to power your device. Because cleaning the port with sharp object or thick cotton swab may result in a broken port.
