Taking a page from another manufacturer, Samsung has added an improved Find My Mobile feature that lets you brick a phone remotely or track where it is and erase all the data from a stolen or lost phone. At this point, some of you may ask about the recovery function, like how to recover deleted files on Samsung Galaxy. If you have such kind of problems, you should turn to a third-party program, I think. Here I want to recommend a word-of-mouth program - Samsung Data Recovery.
Samsung Data Recovery can be your great assistant to retrieve your deleted contacts, messages, photos and videos on Samsung Galaxy. Please be noticed not to overwritten your files before they are recovered.
