    The average person doesn't have forensic recovery software. Unless the user did backups or icloud backups some or most of the data would be unrecoverable... the only data that can be recovered are itunes purchases...

     

    Always back up your ios device!!!

    Yes, that's what I said.

     

    One can never back up too often!

    how do i recover lost data from iphone 4s after accidental restore. i had not backed it up, not recently synced and icloud was off.

     

    Be careful, you cannot restore back to the iPhone, (as some companies claim), but You CAN recover back to your PC/Laptop/MAC. Read ALL specs carefully and check their REVIEWS before anything else.

    The only one I have used is this guide: How to recover lost data from iPhone 4S. I’ve seen with some other companies, which even fake their own Reviews, to appear trustworthy. It's dirty business.

    However, with some good research, you should be able to get your stuff back.

    For iPhone 4s, it's hard to recover the data from device directly.

    Though, there are many easy iphone recovery software or tool or utility in the world, but the recovery process is limited. These software are sensitive to your device. For example, the easy iphone recovery software can recover iphone 3gs or 4, but it cannot for 4s or 5 in the same situation.

    If you want to recover your iPhone data, just keep reading this article. It provide you 2 simple ways to recover iPhone data: directly scan iPhone to recover the data and recover lost data from iTunes backup.

     

    Both programs admit you to restore your iPhone data and they do a good job with iPhone 4s after accidental restore.

    A) I haven't lost any data and B) if you're trying to sneak a link to "recovery software" in, you've failed.

    Some spammers are smarter than others. There's half a dozen messages from this one, none of them sneak in a link or reference to the crapware they are trying to get people to buy.

  • Meg St._Clair Level 8 Level 8 (37,445 points)

    What a bunch of them are doing is concealing the link. Unless you hover over the right word or phrase, you don't even see the link. Guess they're hoping for accidental clicks.

    yes, it is possible with iPhone data recovery program.

     

    Even from a factory restore? That's new to me.

    It's theoretically possible with (expensive) forensic recovery software. For all practical purposes, that data is gone.

     

    To recover lost data from iPhone without backup:
    1) Select the device to scan
    2) Enter the DFU mode and then scan your iPhone
    * Hold your iPhone and click "Start".
    * Press "Home" and "Power" button at the same time when you click "Start",and hold for 10 seconds. The program will count it for you.
    * After 10 seconds passing, release "Power" and keep pressing "Home" for another 10 seconds.
    3) Preview and recover deleted iPhone data

    When you synchronize your iPhone with iTunes then it automatically create backup of all data. As you say that you deleted your backup by yourself, then it can not be recovered with any manual method. There are also some reason by which stored data is deleted or corrupted due to some problem like storage disk failure, system problem and many more.
    So if your data is important for you and you really want to know how to recover data from iPhone and create backup of your iPhone easily.
