So how do you recover data on a mobile phone, I have it connected, but the software doesn't detect

Matt,

You'd have to use something like the IUWEshare iPhone Data Recovery they advertise, or perhaps something similar for Android, or check the Apple or Google stores to get something that runs on the phone itself rather than in Windows.

This sort of software searches data storage that uses a Windows file system, finding any data & trying to assemble that into usable files. The data itself is stored in small chunks, & when a file's deleted, or something goes wrong, what's more-or-less a table of contents for the storage no longer knows what's stored where, although that data is usually still there until it's overwritten.

With a cell phone a few things make that more difficult... One, it doesn't use a Windows file system, and two, unless the phone's rooted you don't have access to all of the files. Then you have the difficulties connecting a phone to a Windows device [PC/laptop] etc. If what you want to recover is stored on a micro SD card, you can always remove it & use a card reader. If what you want to recover, e.g. photos, is in the cloud, you *may* be able to recover stuff you've deleted depending on the cloud services provider.

Matt, It appears that you may have to download iPhone Data Recovery if you are trying to recover items from your Phone instead of this software which appears to be for Photos only.

The statement "IUWEshare Photo Recovery Wizard provides you the safest way to get all your lost or deleted photos and images files back without any loss."
is untrue as the SAFEST known method is to read the data source drive into an image file stored on a known good drive and then do all further scanning and data recovery from the image file and not on the potentially failing source drive which could lose more and more data the longer the drive is in use!

It also revalidates the license over the network to a China hosted website using a subdomain of hong kong registered but anonymised domain. And can check for updates but has no setting to disable the check.

And the setup.exe and the program executables are all not digitally signed by the authors.

For me it provides nothing new, and some old risks of license deactivation at an indeterminate future date and no method to check executable integrity and unwanted update checks. And a vendor that conceals their identity. Uninstalling.

TK, as usual, we are not allowed to update the giveaway. But it will check for updates anyhow. In the programme folder you will see the file Config.dat with an entry lastUpdateTs=131506388417370000. I changed the first 1 in that number to 9 to make certain it will not update. It is sufficient to keep that folder.

[ TK ],

Actually, the "safest" would be a program that WRITE PROTECTS the medium being recovered, like SD-card switches, and floppy diskette sliders and stickers.

I suppose we could use [ diskpart ] to accomplish that, but it WRITES to the media to accomplish write protection.

Does anyone know of an operating system "switch" that write protects any medium?

Peter Blaise, technically it does not have to formally write protect anything all it has to do is unmount the drive and access it directly denying all other operating system processes from even seeing the drive or partition then it can effectively create a drive image... it's the same sort of thing that happens when you do a boot time defragment of a drive or a scheduled boot time chkdsk on the system drive because chkdsk cannot repair a filesystem that is in use by other processes. The only process that can access the chosen drive/s is the one that unmounts it and blocks the other bootup process activity until it is finished.
If the program has exclusive access to a partition and performs no write operation on the locked partition then it is practically write protected for the exclusive access duration.

TK, Very nice details here! Thanks for doing all the work!!! I also do not like several problems you have discovered here!

I'm just responding to your comment on "safety", which you missed by saying that a program that dismounts the drive or looks at a drive not that Windows has not mounted yet can WRITE to the drive, such as ChkDsk and various boot defraggers.
___________

Does anyone know of a way to write protect media, mechanically or via software settings?

Thanks.

Peter Blaise, I did not miss anything. Those other boot time operations are examples of how a system drive is accessed exclusively by a program, from then on it's upto the program if the drive ever gets written to as windows filesystem driver no longer has access to the drive.

Fact is what you are wanting to achieve, which is not necesary for the safe image making process, is a forensic operating system which windows is NOT and cannot be without severly hacking drivers.

If you really want to make a normal read/write drive read only you would have to create a custom driver that by default prohibits writes to the attached device. The file disk.sys could be hacked to have an additional RO parameter that is enabled on a disk being installed on the system and then if you want it to be read/write enabled you'd go into device manager and deselect the RO advanced setting.The big problem with this and other driver inf file hacking is it breaks driver WHQL signing so the system has to run either with manual advanced disabled driver signature enforcement or windows would need to be configured for test signing mode to permit the use of self-signed drivers and system files. You could also hack the firmware on a USB hard drive caddy so it keeps any attached drive unwritten to. But to my knowledge there is no built in simple software switch to enforce read-only on normal drives in any released version of microsoft windows.

Once again I have to ask the obvious questions:
1. Is this 6-month license, a lifetime license? Free updates?
2. What OS's are supported? Win7, XP, iOS, etc.?
3. Your website says it's $39.99, originally $69.99.
Your website doesn't give much more info:

In view of the plethora of data retrieval software out there -- and especially of the kind exemplified by today's giveaway -- computer users who aren't geeks might appreciate the insights provided here by PhotoRec, one of the longest-established and well-known Photo (graph) Rec(overy) apps out there:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

created by an Open Source developer and always available free of charge.

In practice, I've not found any commercial program that out-performs PhotoRec. It may be that IUWEshare Photo Recovery is the exception to the rule: I simply don't have time today to run them back to back.

That said, having 'benchmark' software against which to compare alternative products is always a good thing, so for those who don't have anything of that nature on their computer, downloading both today's giveaway to assess its performance and PhotoRec wouldn't be a waste of time.

As ever and always though, the rule where data retrieval is concerned is, if at all possible, NOT to get into a position where retrieval was ever necessary in the first place.

Today's software, for example, is said by its developer to carry a retail price of $70. That's a heck of a sum to fork out seeing as the cost of an external hard drive on which to back up or sync data is considerably less.

Yes, accidents will happen; files of any kind can be lost or damaged; hard drives will ultimately fail . . . but users who put their faith in regular back-ups or syncing to external archives are always going to be better insulated against misfortune than those who simply cross their fingers that some software or other will retrieve that which may well have been irrecoverably lost.

MikeR,

Hi, please correct me if I'm wrong. About PhotoRec.. You say 'computer users who aren't geeks might appreciate the insights provided here by PhotoRec', etc. AREN'T GEEKS(??)) To me it looks every inch 'geeky'!:) Imagine every day life situation when one goes to hospital because there's something wrong with them, the doctors perform an X-ray of their body and present it asking: show me where the the pain is, AND - you can either fix it yourself, OR we'll fix it for you!? Now, most sensible thing would (surely) be to go under general anaesthetic, let them deal with that X-ray, fix what's wrong, and wake up happy:)??

In other words - PhotoRec, as clever and efficient as it might be, or indeed is - is not a Tool most users are familiar with, unless they know exactly what they're doing conducting this D.I.Y operation.. Am I little bit right?:) Looking at 'step-by step' on that website You provided the link for - gave me (and perhaps others) that very impression.. Not for the first time, and nothing has changed there since I looked at it last time and attempted to use it.. Shame, I would gladly donate some money to them if they could kindly change that 'DOS-like' GUI for something more 'modern' and approachable!?

Finally - I too find IUWEshare Photo Recovery Wizard 1.8.8.8, rather useless. After hours (and hours) of searching for 'lost photo Files' - it found nothing in Folders with missing images, some remaining DB Files at best. Have to uninstall.
