These are the problems that I collected from the Internet, and I believe many people have the same problem. And I also noticed that there are several programs, one of the program named Stellar Photo recovery which promised to do the job, but, in fact not, I noticed that many people complained about it, just look at the following example:
"Hi I have deleted all my photo's from my Galaxy S3 GT-I9300, it does not pick up my internal storage with Stellar Photo recovery ? I can't seem to mount my internal storage to look like mass storage? Can you help please. "
Therefore, a reliable program will be necessary, after tried many programs online, I finally come accross a data recovery software named Dr.Fone for Android which is a powerful Samsung Galaxy S3 data recovery software that is able to recover deleted or lost data such as contacts, messages, photos and video from Samsung Galaxy S3 and other Samsung devices or other devices.
If you want to recover photos, video and music not only from the SD card inside your mobile phone, but also from computer, or other storage devices like external hard drives, cameras, camcorders, USB drives, iPod, MP3/MP4 players, etc you can use Photo Recovery, or Photo Recovery for Mac
Below are the detailed steps for you to recover deleted data from Samsung Galaxy S3:
Connect your Samsung Galaxy S3 to the computer with a USB cable. Then run the program and you'll get the main interface below.
Then you need to enable USB debugging before scanning your device. There are three options for you to follow. Choose the right Android OS vesion for your phone, and follow to set it.
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter "Settings" < Click "Applications" < Click"Development" < Check "USB debugging"
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check"USB debugging"
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter "Settings" < Click "About Phone" < Tap"Build number" for several times until getting a note "You are under developer mode" < Back to "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check "USB debugging"
When your device is connected and detected by the program, click "Start"button in the screen below to start analyzing it. Before doing this, make sure that your phone battery is more than 20% charged, so that you can get a smooth scan
After the analyzing, you need to turn to your device's homescreen to click"Allow", so that the scan can be started. Then click "Start" to scan your device now.
Note: For some devices, they may ask you to click "Allow" more than one time on your device's homescreen. It's normal. Just do it if it askes.
The scan will take you some time. When messages and contacts are scanned out, it will remind you. And you can stop the scan to get them back if you only want to recover deleted messages and contacts. For photos and video, it will take you more time to scan out all of them.
After the scan, you can check details of all the found data one by one. Mark those you want and click "Recover" to save them on your computer.
