Before starting the procedure, please ensure to have the latest iTunes version installed. To avoid the automatical sync, don’t launch iTunes when running dr.fone.

To start off, you may connect your device to the computer using the original USB cable that came with the device when you bought it. Then launch dr.fone on your computer and choose “Recover”. (You can download dr.fone here)

Once it’s all connected, the program will detect your device, and will show you the window as follows.


From this step you may choose which data dr.fone should scan, but you can leave them all checked and launch the scan clicking the button on the bottom right. Once you click the program will scan the device for lost data. It may take a while before you see what you’re looking for, mostly depending on the amount of data present on the device before the breaking stop, but if you see something you’re interested about, you can freely pause or stop the scan using the buttons on the top right.


As mentioned before, the scan will take a while, and once finished the program will show you both actual and lost content. To filter out the deleted data found on the device, you can swipe the option “Only display the deleted items” to ON. By clicking the file type in the left side, you can preview the found data, and you can look for a specific file by typing a keyword in the search box. Then to save the data to your computer or your device click the “Recover to computer” button.

In this specific case, when recovering contacts a pop-up will ask you to “Recover to Computer” or “Recover to Device”.

That’s it! If you successfully completed the steps above you should be good to go.
