"Yesterday, while I was cleaning my message box, I took the 'clean all' operation by mistake! It can't be undone and I've got some very important information within my messages. My model is Samsung Galaxy S8. Is there any way to retrieve them?"-Johny
SMS plays an important role in our lives. We keep in touch with our family and friends through these or those conversations in our Android phone. However, day by day, we have accumulated a great deal of messages in the SMS box, so we have to clean the box periodically. Some day you might clean some messages that you want to keep carelessly, and trust me, you are not alone. Therefore, we need a tool to help us prevent losing the valuable SMS, like Android Data Recovery.
Restore Deleted SMS from Samsung Galaxy S8
Cases like what Johny went through happen every day. So here I would like to introduce an excellent tool to you-Android Data Recovery, which is designed for recovering deleted SMS professionally. Besides, with this tool, almost all kinds of data can be recovered including contacts, photos, videos, notes, WhatsApp, documents, etc. In addition, it also works well while we are intended to factory reset our phone, flash the ROM, etc. Within a few simple step, you can retrieve all you lost back. What's more, it's fit for nearly all versions of Samsung Android system.
How to Restore Deleted SMS from Samsung Galaxy S8
Step 1. Connect Samsung Galaxy S8 Phone
Launch Android Data Recovery on your computer, and select "Data Recovery" in the home page.
Connect your Samsung phone to the computer using a USB cable. Please make sure you have enabled USB debugging on your Samsung phone.
If your Android OS version is 4.2.2 or above, there will be a pop up message on your Android phone, tap on OK to allow USB debugging.
Step 2. Select File Types to be Scanned
Once the phone is connected successfully, Android Data Recovery will show all the data types it supports to recover. By default, it has checked all the file types. You can just select "Messaging". And then click "Next" to continue the data recovery process.
Step 3. Scan Samsung to Find the Text Message
Here are two scanning modes. You can read the description and choose the "Standard Mode" or the "Advanced Mode" here to continue according to your need. We recommend you to try "Standard Mode" first, which works faster. If it doesn't find the files you are looking for, you can then try "Advanced Mode".
Now, click "Start" to start analyzing and scanning your Samsung device.
Now, Android Data Recovery is scanning the lost data from your device. This process will take a few minutes.
Note: There might be a Superuser authorization appearing on your device during the scan. If you get it, click "Allow" to continue. If not, just skip this step.
Step 4. Preview and Recover Deleted SMS on Samsung
When the scan is complete, you are allowed to preview the found data one by one. Check the data you want and click "Recover" to save the selected data on your computer.
