STARTING THE APP :

DiskDigger for Android is an outstanding file recovery app that not only works but does so in a very simple way. After installing the app it unveils two options one is “Basic scan” while the other one is “Full Scan”. The “full” scan functionality is available only on rooted devices, whereas the “basic” functionality is available for all devices whether it is rooted or not.

If your device is rooted, the app lets you choose the memory partition to scan. Generally, Your device’s internal memory appears as “/data”, and the device’s SD card appears as “/mnt/sdcard“.

Suppose if your device is not rooted click on the “Start basic photo scan” button to continue. After that proceed over to “Scanning for files” section which is shown below.

When you are using this app in a rooted device, you will get a request of “Superuser window” is displayed. Later on, you have to select the memory device to scan, next you have to choose which types of files that you like to recover.

1.SCANNING FOR FILES :

When the app starts scanning for deleted files, the main DiskDigger window appears on the screen. Here you can find the deleted files. According to your requirement restore the deleted files by tapping on it.

You may also tap on the overflow menu (three dots) on each of the files, to see recovery options for each individual file.

2.FILTERING FILES : 

By clicking on the options(gear icon) button you can filter the recoverable files based on the file size and file type. If you want to impose a minimum size on the files shown, press the checkbox next to “Minimum file size”, and enter the minimum number of bytes below. By default, a minimum size is enabled when recovering photos, to filter out most other (non-photo) images that may be on your device’s memory (from browser cache, bitmaps from other apps, etc).

3. SAVING FILES : 

you can save your recoverable files in three different ways i. e Save to an appSave to device, and FTP upload. To recover one or more files, tap the check mark next to the recoverable files you want to recover, then tap the “Recover” button in the top toolbar.

a) Saving to an app :

The first and most recommended method allows you to send the recoverable files to another app on your device. For example, you can send the files to your Email app, so that you could email the files to yourself. You can also send the files to a cloud storage app such as Dropbox or Google Drive. Your device will automatically allow you to select the app to which the files will be sent.

b) Saving Locally :

The second option allows you to save the recoverable files back to the local device (to the internal memory or SD card of the same device from which the files are being recovered).

c) Saving on Android 5( Lollipop) and above :

The standard android folder picker allows you to select the folder into which the files have to be saved. Using standard picker for the first time is a little bit difficult. f you see an empty screen with an “Open from” which is displayed in the below screenshot, then follow these steps:

  • Swipe away the “Open from” panel to the left.
  • Tap the overflow menu (three dots) in the top right corner, and select “Show SD card” or “Show internal memory”.
  • Tap the navigation menu (three lines in the top left corner, and you should now be able to pick the SD card or Internal memory and navigate to the exact location where you want to save the files.

You will be lead to choose the directory where files should be saved. By default, the location of the memory card on your device is like “/mnt/sdcard“. At the end the directory picker allows you to navigate through the directory structure of your device

e) Saving by FTP uploading

In this last step, you will be allowed to upload the recoverable files to an FTP server. For this, you have to need access to an FTP server that is online, with the correct credentials for accessing and uploading to the server. DiskDigger enables a dialogue box for entering the FTP server hostname and your user name and password for logging on to the server.

Click on the ok button for commencing the uploading process. If your login details are successful you will get status updates at the bottom of the screen, The files will be named based on the location where they were found.

4) Cleaning up :

Besides recovering your files, DiskDigger helps you in deleting the files permanently, so that there will be no chance for recovering again. Next, to the “Recover” button, you can find the “clean up” button which will take you to clean up mode.

The cleanup mode is divided into two sections one is “Thumbnail caches” and while the other one is “photos”. This is because a thumbnail cache (a file that contains multiple thumbnails) must be deleted as a whole, which would delete all the thumbnails contained in it.  Therefore the app allows you to examine these thumbnail caches, as well as individual photos, and select which ones you want to delete.

5. Wiping free space :

With the help of wiping free space feature, you can easily remove free spaces in your devices. Once the files are removed means none of them cannot be recoverable again, even using tools like DiskDigger. The “Wipe free space” feature can be accessed directly from the main screen of the DiskDigger app. Even while performing a full scan it can get accessed only just by clicking the cleanup button.

DiskDigger For Android

There are some limitations which you should aware of it while using wiping free space feature. 

  • Wiping of free space is done by creating a temporary file and filling it with random data until it consumes the entire amount of free space on your device. When the temporary file begins to reach the limit of free space, the Android system will usually display a notification that your available space is running out. You should ignore this notification until the wipe process is complete. When it finishes, it will delete the temporary file and free up the remaining space again.
  • The wiping is done only on the internal memory of the device. The ability to wipe an external SD card will be added in a future version
  • It’s important to note that because the wiping is done by overwriting all the free space, it means that the process inflicts a significant amount of wear on the device’s memory. This can potentially shorten the life span of the memory and should be performed sparingly, and only when necessary
