A few days ago, I synced my iPod Touch to my compmuter and it deleted all my content there! I had no idea what happened! What’s worst, I had no backup for my stuff! What to do? All my music and apps were purchased from Apple store. I didn’t wanna lose them. So, I posted questions on Yahoo. answers and some forums to ask for help. Thank god! Finally, after several days of effort, I found out a solution and got all my stuff back! Here I would like to share you how I recover deleted photos, videos and music from iPod Touch.
People told me that there were some iPod recovery software that could recover data you deleted, lost on iPod. The experts claim that why the recovery software can do such job for us iPod users. When I sync your iPod Touch to my computer at the very first time, iTunes will creat a backup file is a kind of .db file to save all my content on computer. Then everytime I sync it with computer, this backup file will be updated to the latest date. But this backup file is inaccessible and unvisible for me and you. So, to make use of it, I need a third party utility, which is called iPod data recovery software that allow me extract data from the back file. Tenorshare Data Recovery for Mac is such an iPod recovery software that enables me to preview and recover all contents from the backup file, including your photos, videos, notes, calendar and contacts. Besides, it is available for iPhone, iPad data recovery too. The last and not least, it even can extract all your files after the iOS devices are stolen or broken(can’t be used any more). That’s amazing!
Now, here I shows steps to recover deleted content from iPod Touch.
Step 1. I downloaded this recovery software (from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/ipod-data-recovery.html ) onto my computer and lauched it.
Step 2. Selected “iTunes Data Recovery”. All backup files of my iOS devices were listed on the interface. Highlighted my iPod Touch and clicked “Scan” to start.
Step 3. The scanned result separately was listed in categories including Contacts, Call History, Messages, Notes and Photos, etc. I previewed the photos and ticked the ones I would like to recover. Ticked the things I want to get bcak to continue.
Step 4. Clicked “Recover” in the top of the interface to go on the data recovery process.
Step 5. I set a destination floder to save all my stuff.
All done. Seems so easy. But there are still some details you need to know.
1. Remember, to prevent the lost data from being written over, do not sync your iPod Touch to your computer again after you lost data. Because the backup file will still be updated when iPod syncing after data loss happens.
2. This recovery software is not free, but if you really want your data back, then the money might be worth it. That is to say, the software you download is just a free trial version. You need to get a licen from the company.
In case you may encounter such kind of data loss situations, I shared my personal experience here for all your guys. If you have any problem to recover ipod data, please let me know!
