Part 2: Notes of the Files Recovery

1. Please stop using your device when you find out that the deleted files are important for you. Otherwise it may effect the result of files recovery. Actually when your files are deleted, they still exist on the device of the internal memory. But if you keep using your device when the deleting happens, you may overwrite the deleted files.

2. Then files are restored on your computer rather than on your device. If you want the files on your device, please move the files yourself.

3. Sometimes the reason why we delete the files is because we don't get enough storage space of our device. So one of the solutions is to get a ZTE phone with large storage capacity. Of cause for the important files, it is better to make a backup copy on your computer.
