If you have factory reset your Huawei phone or accidentally deleted some files that you later realized you needed, this article will help you figure out how to restore your lost data. I will take you through some of the most reliable Huawei data recovery solutions that you can use depending on the tools you have at your disposal.
The five Huawei phone data recovery methods I am about to share work depending on your situation. Most of the methods on this list require you to have made a backup before you deleted the data you want to recover. However, I will also share a solution that doesn’t require backups to recover your deleted files. Without wasting any more of your time, let’s jump right in!
If your Huawei phone has an SD Card slot, you can always back up some of your files on the SD card. For instance, you may choose to save all your photos and videos captured by your camera on your SD Card instead of the phone storage. You can also create copies of your most important files on both your phone’s storage and the SD card.
Here's how to do it:
Insert the SD Card into your device if it is not in yet.
Copy the files you want to recover from the SD Card back to your phone storage.
HiSuite is an application Huawei developed to help users manage their devices via a computer. This tool can also be used to back up and recover data on Huawei phones. Using this method requires you to have backed up (using this tool) your Huawei phone before deleting the files you intend to recover.
Install HiSuite on your PC or Mac. Open the application and use a reliable USB cable to connect your phone to the computer.
Once the phone is detected, click the Restore button.
You can now choose files from any of the backups you made and click Restore to retrieve them back to your device.
All Huawei devices come with a backup app installed by default, so you don’t need to install any third-party backup app. This app allows you to create backups for your most important files that you can’t afford to lose in case you accidentally delete them from your device. The backup files can be saved on your phone’s storage or the SD Card.
Follow the steps below to complete:
Open the Backup app from your app drawer.
Tap the Restore button and choose the location where your backup is saved.
Choose the type of files you want to restore and tap Start Restoration. All these files will be saved back to your device.
If you had backed up your Huawei phone with Google, you can use this backup to restore the files you deleted. The files that can be backed up on your Google Account include App data, Call history, Contacts, Settings, SMS messages, Pictures and videos, and MMS messages. It should be noted that restoring files from your Google Account backup requires factory resetting your phone. You also need a stable and fast internet connection to restore the backup.
Reset your phone by going to Settings>System>Reset and choose the Erase all data (factory reset) option.
Set up your phone and sign in using the Google account with your backup.
You will be prompted to restore your phone from a backup. Accept the prompt. Once the setup is done, all the files backed up on your Google account will be saved on your device.
