Step 1 Install Android Data Recovery
As a powerful Backup & Restore software, Android Data Recovery always plays a significant role when in need. You need to download and install it at first, and connect your Android phone via USB cable to the computer. After that, launch it and go to "Data Backup & Restore" > "Backup" button.
Note that if your handset cannot get connected to computer, try to enable debugging.

That's all it takes. Really easy, right? However, things get less easy if you'd like to retrieve deleted data first, and then back up all the data. But, it just take you a few more minutes. Let's see how to retrieve deleted above all.

Now, you need to choose types of data and tap on "Next". Next, you should select a storage scanning mode. Please choose "Scan for all files" and click "Next".
Given that we're going to make a backup for existent data and soon-to-be recovered data, "Scan for all files" will be a better choice. However, it takes much time to finish scanning.
After that, all the data will be displayed on the interface with deleted files marked in red. Select all the data and hit the "Recover" button. After deciding on the location to which you're going to export all the data, all the files will be saved to your computer.
Note that if you prefer to scan for deleted files, you can as well back up all the files via the previous steps above.

Note that Advanced Mode will perform a further and thorough scanning thereby taking much time. You may try it lest you indeed find no deleted files.
After completing the scanning, you can preview and selectively choose items to export to your PC.
