What is Dr Fone: Toolkit review

Dr Fone is one of the most easy-to-use, user-friendly Android recovery apps, and no wonder Dr Fone Toolkit is that popular among users who lost their mobile data.

Since recently, you can download Dr Fone App as a Toolkit which has a variety of functional modules such as: Data Recovery for Android, Data Backup & Restore, Root Manager, Data Extraction, Data Eraser and some others.

Basically, the Data Recovery module mentioned above is responsible for data recovery on Android.

Data Recovery Module characteristics

Data Recovery module resources are focused on scanning for most of the data types lost on phones and tablets most frequently:

  • videos and photos taken with a phone and deleted from Android Gallery
  • text notes plus incoming/outgoing text messages
  • documents and books
  • contacts from Address Book and Call log

Where Dr Fone looks for your files

This software handles both micro SD and internal memory of a device. Despite the fact that internal memory doesn’t get scanned too deeply (due to Android system restrictions), there is a chance to find data deleted not long ago, at least unless it was overwritten. 

How Dr Fone recovery module works 

Dr Fone software provides step-by-step recovery (and it’s an obvious benefit for inexperienced users). The steps are as follows:

1. Connect your smartphone or tablet to the computer

You need to connect your phone to PC via USB cable with enabled USB debugging. As a rule, it’s enough to accept it on your phone.

2. Select a memory scan method

Dr Fone suggests ticking several data types (listed above). A user chooses between Standard and Advanced Modes (the latter one requires root access). The developer of the app reminds that rooting can lead to your losing a warranty and other technical issues; so we’d suggest getting started with the Standard one to manage simple cases.

3. Start scanning

Another thing affected by the scan mode is scan speed; however, the difference is literally several minutes. Like MobiSaver and other Android data recovery software, Wondershare Dr Fone has Preview for all types of data so you can recover only the files you need.

4. Preview results of the scanning

All file types are available for Preview before you save them. As the trial version of Dr Fone has limits, Preview also gives you an opportunity to assess how effective this tool is before you buy it.

5. Save files to any disk or device

It can and should be done securely without overwriting the files.

Where to download Dr Fone for Android

There are versions for Mac OS and Windows users. Their features are identical on condition that your mobile device can be connected to PC using a USB cable (make sure your handset has necessary drivers installed).

The app functions in a trial mode so its features can be tested right before you start recovering files. Download Dr Fone free trial from developer’s website.

When the free trial expires, you’ll be offered to buy Dr Fone Toolkit Full Version - $39.95 for a One-year License and $49.95 for a Lifetime License.
