iPhone Data Recovery

iPhone Data Recovery

If your phone has broken down and you no longer have access to your data, you could experience some serious consequences. A copy of a certain amount of your data might be stored in the “cloud,” but often, this is not really the case. iPhones can easily hold thousands of photos, sms messages, WhatsApp messages, phone contacts, etc.

Reasons Why Data Becomes Inaccessible

The following are some of the most common reasons why iPhone data becomes inaccessible:

  • Virus or Malware Infection- This is one of the most common factors that can easily damage data stored on your phone, making the files inaccessible. If your iPhone is jailbroken, there are chances your phone could be troubled by viruses or malware. Viruses can infect your device when you transfer files from an infected PC or download infected files from the Internet.
  • Factory Reset- There is a factory setting option available on your phone. If you do the factory reset on your phone, then it will completely delete data (messages, contacts, photos, videos and music files) stored on your device.
  • Unintentionally or accidental file deletion- You might be deleting files from your device to free up some space to add new data. In this case, it is possible to accidentally delete some of your important files. Also, if you mistakenly press the “Delete All” button, it will delete all your data.
  • Formatting iPhone- Accidentally or intentionally formatting the phone containing your important photos, videos, audio or other files could cause them to be deleted; therefore, you will not be able to access your files.
  • Other potential reasons include unsuccessful unlocking, loss or damage to the device, iOS updates and many more.

With any of the reasons mentioned above, the device’s data will be altered or corrupted. But, you do not have to worry at all, because you can easily retrieve data from your iOS device in Windows or Mac with the help of a proper iPhone data recovery program.

How do You Recover Data from iPhones?

It is often possible to recover deleted iPhone files if the files have been lost as a result of unlocking the iPhone. In addition to losing files after unsuccessful unlocking, you can lose critical files on iOS devices for many other reasons, such as an iOS update, restore to factory settings, loss or damage to the iOS device, and so on. No matter the type of problem you have, you can use iPhone data tools to easily find your files from an iPhone.

iPhones have become one of the most essential products of this era. The devices are used for a wide range of operations outside of communication, which is their most basic function. Some of the most common tasks that can be performed using iPhones are capturing photos, uploading audio or video media files, playing interactive games, creating documents, and surfing the net. In addition, smartphones are considered a stylish fashion statement, because they have elegant designs and amazing features. Unfortunately, data from your smartphone can get deleted or lost without your knowledge, which can get you in trouble. However, the good news is, you can easily recover lost data from your iPhone.

Intelligent Ways to Recover Data

There are actually a lot of recovery tools available online, but the important thing is that you have to go with a reliable one that can make a complete recovery of deleted data.

Use these tools to retrieve data from your device, like attractive images, songs, games, videos, etc. You can recover your data by integrating the data recovery modes provided below:

1. Recover Data Without a Backup

How do you restore lost iPhone data if you do not have an iTunes backup? iPhone Data Recovery undertakes a thorough analysis of your iOS apparel and directly retrieves all your lost data without backup files. When files on your iOS hardware are lost due to an inaccessible system, accidental deletion, or a forgotten screen unlock password, you can use any iPhone Data Recovery software to scan them and return them directly to your iPhone. If you are using an iPhone 5S or iPhone 4S, you will be able to retrieve text files including messages and contacts from the iPhone.

If you have an iPhone 4, you will be able to not only recover the text files mentioned, but 5 types of media file, including your photo gallery, voice memos, message attachments, photos, and videos.

2. Restore Data from an iTunes Backup

With iTunes, it takes just three clicks to restore your iPhone data, even if your device is stolen, lost or seriously damaged. That said, please make sure to make a regular backup. If your iOS device has been backed up to your PC via an iTunes backup, this recovery method will help you to find your deleted files from iTunes and put them back on your iPhone. If you have not been able to recover your lost files directly from iOS devices, but you have your iTunes backup, you can retrieve the previous data from your iTunes library. You will need to recover your iTunes backup files using this recovery mode in the following cases:

  • Failure in updating or unlocking your iPhone.
  • You have lost or broken your iOS device.
  • You have restored the factory settings on your device.

3. Extract the Data Saved on iCloud

Sign in to iCloud, and you can preview any saved files you want. All files can be selectively extracted. In addition to recovering your data from a backup to iDevices or iTunes, there is a third recovery mode: iCloud backup recovery. This recovery mode for iCloud is useful when dealing with the following problems:

  • None of your iPhone files has ever been backed up to iTunes, but they have been backed up to iCloud.
  • You use iTunes to back up, but iTunes backup data was lost due to a computer crash.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

        Advertising

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
