Best iPhone data recovery software at no cost

If you are in search of best iPhone data recovery software free of cost out there for recovering lost data from your iPhone then you have probably hit upon the right article. Here in this post I am going to share information about two best iPhone data recovery software namely, ‘iPhone Backup Extractor’ and ‘EaseUS MobiSaver Free’, which are truly effective for recovering deleted contents from all Apple iDevices i.e. iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Best thing about the programs are that they are free for non-commercial personal use.

With increasing popularity of iPhone and other Apple devices, iPhone users are often seen to search for good and effective iPhone data recovery software, free of any charges to safeguard against unforeseen loss of data from their devices. You may find some iPhone recovery free programs out there that claim to retrieve and restore deleted contents efficiently back to your device. But I would suggest not to rely on these untried programs because after all your data are very valuable to you and there can not be any compromise with them. Your deleted information, therefore, certainly warrant a trustworthy program that will genuinely work for successful recovery of your valuable data and not for spoiling them. After going through several data recovery software reviews the above two programs eventually grabbed my attention. In fact, one of the above two programs once saved my day from an extremely agonizing situation when I accidentally deleted all my contents from my iPhone which included number of rare family photos, videos, scarce songs and important contacts. Read on….

Once when I was carrying out up-gradation of my iPhone by restoration process, may be mistakenly without taking any backup of my data, it was discovered to my utter surprise that all my valuable data including rare media files and important contacts and messages disappeared from my iPhone and I was left in an absolute shattered state. Luckily, on my intense search of the web I stumbled upon one of the above free iPhone data recovery software, which eventually came to my rescue and salvaged my situation. With the help of the software I could restore all my precious data and media files, which I believed had gone for ever, with click of a mouse. Before I go into the details of these free programs, let me first explain how third party software help in data restoration process in Apple i-devices.

The process of iPhone data recovery by third party software

When iPhone or any other Apple i-devices is connected to your computer onto a Mac or Windows system and synchronized with iTunes for the first time, iTunes automatically creates a folder where it backs up the entire data on the iPhone. The backed up files are stored in the ‘Mobile-sync’ folder hidden in the user folder on either of the operating platforms. Once the folder is created, each time the device is synced with the iTunes, it automatically updates the files in the folder. In short during first synchronization iTunes takes a full backup of the entire data on the device and subsequently it only backs up and overwrite the contents which are modified. iTunes also initiates automatic backup of the Apple i-device in a folder whenever it is upgraded or restored. This file folder can not be viewed or taken out unless you use a good third party software which is specially designed for it.You can select both backup methods through iTunes under the ‘Summary tab of your device and it is recommended that you run the backup process manually by right clicking on your device and clicking on ‘Back Up.

For any reason if you didn't do such backup of your data, you can use third-party programs to get back the data from your iPhone. It has been proved that data lost due to upgrade or downgrade of system or for any other reasons, are not erased permanently. It only means the storage place which is used to save the deleted data before are marked rewritable again, and you can load new data into these places. In other words, that means as long as you don't have to overwrite the data, then your lost data will be still saved in the position without any change. You can take help of a professional data recovery program to get them back.

The two free best iPhone data recovery software mentioned earlier use advanced algorithms to retrieve any lost data from your iPhone by extracting them from the files stored in the folder, created by iTunes.

It works with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 5c and 5s. The iPhone Backup Extractor can recover contacts, pictures, call histories, SMS and text messages, video, voice-mail, calendar entries, saved games, debug information and data that might otherwise be inaccessible.

The best thing about this application is that it is totally free for non-commercial use although the registered users can avail few additional benefits. This free iPhone data recovery software uses an advance scanning algorithms which enables it to retrieve data in a fast and easiest way. You do not require any technical skills to use this program, which in my opinion is one among the best iPhone data recovery software out there on the net.

What should be done in case of data loss?

When it comes to data recovery, the first thing to bear in mind is that there are no guarantees. Data that's gone from your Apple device may very well be gone for good, especially if the device has been used and connected to iTunes. Therefore, make it sure that you do not connect your phone to iTunes after the data loss otherwise iTunes may take a new backup of the device overwriting your old one. If the old backup gets overwritten none of the data recovery software, free or paid, will be able to find your lost data from the Apple devices.


So, if you are in distress due to accidental loss of data from your iPhone or for that matter from any of your Apple devices you need not worry any longer and lose peace of mind. With a little patience, there is every possibility of recovering all your lost data with the help of one of the above two programs, which are among the best iPhone recovery software out there, unless of course the data have been over written or the hard disk containing the backup folder is totally damaged.

With increasing popularity, more and more people have become dependent on Apple mobile devices and the incidences of data losses have also consequently gone up considerably. Although Apple devices show minimum data losses among similar electronic products in the market, nobody can guarantee that no data would ever be lost from these devices. The two best free iPhone data recovery software described above can, therefore, be a real saviour in such situation as these programs provides complete extraction of any lost data from iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS be it Photos, Videos, Songs, Safari's bookmarks, Calendar entries, Call History, Contacts, Notes or anything else.
