Part 1: Can I Recover Data from LG Phone?
Nowadays, the smart phone is an indispensable part in your daily life. You can use your phone to make calls, take photos and videos, send and receive messages, and more. Without doubt, there must be some important data on your phone. If data loss issue happens, you will be in trouble.
Take LG phone as an example. If some of your important files are deleted from your LG phone by mistake, is it possible to do LG data recovery? It depends on the situation. Here, you need to pay attention to these three cases:
1. After you delete your data on your LG phone, the deleted items are not wiped from the device immediately. The spaces occupied by these deleted files are just marked as empty, thus any new data is allowed to write in. As long as these deleted files are not overwritten by new data, you can use a piece of professional Android data recovery software to get these deleted items back.
2. Some of you have the habit of backing up the data on the LG phone to the Google account. In this situation, if data loss issue happens, you can choose to restore your deleted data from your Google account.
3. If you have never backed up your LG phone data to your Google account and the deleted files are overwritten by new data, it will be a bad news: these deleted files become unrecoverable.
Now, you need to firstly find out which case you are facing, and then utilize a right way to get your deleted LG phone data back.
MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android is such a piece of Android data recovery software which is designed to get all kinds of lost and deleted data from your Android phone, such as Samsung and Nexus series.

Part 2: How to Recover Deleted Files from LG Phone
In this part, we will show you two ways to recover your deleted data from your LG phone: the first way is to recover data from your LG phone as well as SD card directly, and the other way is to restore your Android data from your Google backup. Please select one way according to your own situation.
Way 1: Retrieve Data from LG Phone with MiniTool
If you want to recover the deleted data from your LG phone & SD card, we suggest using the MiniTool software.
The MiniTool team develops more than one product to solve different kinds of issues. To recover your deleted data from your LG phone directly, you should use the professional LG recovery tool - MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android and its "Recover from Phone" module. The Free Edition of this software enables you to recover 10 files of one data type each time. You can download and install this software to your computer to have a try first.
If you want to recover deleted files from the SD card of your LG phone, you can use "Recover from SD-Card" module of MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android. At the same time, there are two more choices for you to do this work: MiniTool Power Data Recovery and MiniTool Photo Recovery. Just use the Free Editions of these programs to have a try first.
Next, we will show you two different cases as follows and you can read them to learn how to use MiniTool software to deal with these two cases separately.
Case 1: How to retrieve deleted files from LG phone directly
This dedicated LG mobile recovery tool - MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android enables you to detect all the data on your LG phone including the deleted files which are not overwritten by new data.
Here, you need to note that, no matter which LG data recovery software you are using, you have to root your Android phone in advance. Otherwise, the software will be unable to visit your LG phone and detect all the data on the device. MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android is not an exception. So, please guarantee that you have rooted your LG phone before. If not, please follow this article to do this job: How to Root Your Android Device?
Meanwhile, to guarantee the normal operation of this software, you need to close any other Android management software during the operation process.
Actually, it is very easy to use this module to retrieve your deleted files from LG phone directly.
Step 1: You need to connect your LG phone to the computer and then open the software to enter its main interface. Next, click on "Recover from Phone".
Step 2: You will skip this "Identify your Device" step unless the USB debugging of your LG phone has not been enabled and you have not allowed USB debugging from the computer you are going to use. If you encounter the following two interfaces, you should follow the prompts to complete the operation, and then you will enter the next step automatically.
Step 3: In this step, you will see the supported recoverable data types and two scan methods. Here, we will make a simple explanation:
1. "Quick Scan" method is available to recover your deleted text data, such as messages, contacts, call histories, and WhatsApp messages & documents. This scan method will cost you little time. If you only want to recover your deleted text data from your LG internal memory, we recommend you to use this scan method. In addition, you are allowed to uncheck the unnecessary text data types if you want to.
2. "Deep Scan" method will scan the entire LG phone and more data including text data and media data will be detected and recovered. Thus this scan method will cost you a lot of time. Besides, all the data types will be checked by default, and you are unable to uncheck them yourself.
Just choose one scan method according to your own situation and then press "Next" button to continue. Here, we take "Deep Scan" as an example.
Step 4: After the scan process, you will enter the scan result interface as shown below. On the left side of this interface, you will see the data type list. If there are detected items, the icon of the data type will be in light blue. Otherwise, the icon will be in light grey. Here, you can choose one data type from the list and view the items one by one in this interface. For example, you want to recover the deleted photos from your LG phone, you can click on "Camera", "Screenshot", "App Picture" and "Picture" accordingly from the left list and then check the photos you want to recover. After that, you need to click on "Recover" button to continue.
Step 5: The software will pop out a small window with the software default storage path. You can choose to click on "Recover" button to save the selected files to that location directly. Of course, you can also click on "Browse" button to choose another path on your computer to save these files.
If you choose to recover more than 10 files with this free software, you will be refused to complete LG data recovery. However, don't worry. You can upgrade this freeware to an advanced version and then retrieve your deleted data from LG phone without limitations.
Case 2: How to recover data from the SD card of your LG phone
Now, it's time to show you the ways to use MiniTool software to retrieve your deleted files from the SD card of your LG phone.

Step 1: Insert your SD card into an SD card reader and connect the SD card reader to your computer. Next, open the software to enter its main interface. After that, you need to choose "Recover from SD-Card" module to continue.
Step 2: When you see the following interface, you need to select the target SD card and click on "Next" button to start the scan process.
Step 3: After the scan process, you will see the scanned files in the following interface. To make this software only show you the deleted files in this interface, you can switch this button to "ON". Then, you can choose the files you want to recover from this interface, and then click on "Recover" button.
Step 4: Just like the step 5 of "Recover from Phone" module, you will see a pop-out window. Here, you can save the selected files to the software default storage path directly, or you can choose another location on your computer to store them.
Still, an advanced version of this software will allow you to recover more data without limitations. If you think this software can solve the issue you are facing, you can get an advanced one from the MiniTool official site.
