In today's video I will be showing you how to recover data that's been lost or deleted from an #iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and how to kick it out of Recovery Mode or Black Screen / Apple logo using a software called D-Back from iMyFone.
I usually get a lot of offers to review stuff like this and I turn them down because I either don't like the interface of the apps, or the apps are simply not working / not detecting anything, but it wasn't the case with D-Back and I had a quite good experience with their tech support.
The application is available for both #Windows and #macOS and compared to other Data #Recovery apps, it seem to have no problem with Sierra or High Sierra, the connection with the device is made in a couple of seconds (5-6 seconds) which is a bit slow in my opinion, but it does connect without compatibility errors.
I've tested D-Back in multiple scenarios and I was able to get some data back while some did not pop in the app. Now a quick note here, Data Recovery has always been a gambling thing, see when you delete something, for example a photo, it is not really removed from there, just hidden and the space it occupies in the memory is marked as free. If that space that is now marked "free" isn't required, your file remains intact and it can be recovered, but if for any reason that space is overwritten with stuff, you may never recover that file back or you might recover it corrupted, that's why is very important to STOP doing anything to the device (like taking new photos and installing apps) if you accidentally removed a file you need back. This is by no means a guaranteed way to get all removed files back and you can't get back files removed by a full erase restore.
This application is great and not because I am sponsored to make this video, but because they provide a FREE trial to the user which allows the user to scan the device and preview files for FREE, to recover the files, you need to buy a license, but by the time you buy the license, you already know for sure whether your files can or cannot be recovered, whereas some similar apps would force you to buy the app first before scanning.
Kicking the device out of the recovery mode was easily and swiftly done, no objections in this department. Apparently, the application can also restore the device (will erase data) in advanced mode if the iOS is destroyed beyond repair.
