How to Retrieve Deleted Data on Google Pixel

By Elsie Wesley, Friday, March 10, 2017

There is no doubt that the hot topic recently is MWC 2017, in which many new mobile phones and technology are released, like LG G6, HUAWEI P10, etc. Nevertheless, the Google Pixel can still be comparable with them. As the creation of Google, Pixel is filled with many Google elements. For instance, it is the first phone with the Google Assistant built in. If you got such phone and finished transferring the important data to it, please protect your data with high attention. Once the vital data is deleted mistakenly or lost suddenly, it is different from iPhone which will save part of data in 30 days while Pixel will not. So how comes?

To solve such cases of data losing, something you should get ready before recovering data:

1. A tool: FonePaw Android Data Recovery to extract the deleted data from your device.

2. Keep over 20% battery on your Pixel or Pixel XL.

3. A PC/Mac to save what you will retrieve.

4. Enough time to operate the recovery process.

5. A good mood for the recovery process and results.

Detailed Steps to Get Deleted Data Back to Google Pixel

Step 1. Get the Program on the PC

The following buttons allow you to download Android Data Recovery on your personal computer. Choose which one is suitable for you.


Step 2. Get Phone Connected

Connect your Pixel to PC/Mac with a USB cable. Then go to set up the debugging mode on the Android phone. If this step costs a little more time, please check whether you have ticked "MTP" mode allowing the files to be scanned from the Pixel.

When you choose the data, the brief summary is on the bottom: "Total: 194 item(s) 478.86 MB  selected: 194 item(s) 478.86 MB".

Once you have confirmed what you chose, click "Recover" to get them back on the Pixel phone. Those recovered data are saved on the computer, not smartphone, so if you want to move them to device, copy and paste via using mouse can deal with this.

Tips for Avoiding Data Lost Again

Tip 1. Do a backup for your Pixel phone regularly.

Option One: Actually, you must log in Google account on your Pixel/XL, so just back up the data via Gmail.

Option Two: Every time you connect phone to PC, you can copy the data to PC, which is really simple with drag-and-drop to switch the files.

Option Three: If you have no PC, to transfer the part of the data to the old device if it is in good condition is not bad.

Tip 2. When data is deleted, please stop to use the device lest the caches is overwritten. Otherwise, you cannot regain the data back.
