FonePaw Android Data Recovery is a Windows tool that provides you with a solution for restoring lost or deleted Android files directly from your PC. The program helps you recover various types of files, is compatible with many Android device models, and allows you to preview the found data before restoring it.

The first thing you need to do after launching the utility is to connect your Android gadget to your PC. You will need to enable the USB debugging option from your device (it can be found in the Developer Options window) and grant permission to FonePaw Android Data Recovery for accessing your gadget files.

The next step consists of selecting the types of files you wish to restore. You can recover photos, WhatsApp data, videos, documents, etc. Then, click the "Next" button. Here's where things get a little fishy. You will need to install several root tools on your Android device so that FonePaw Android Data Recovery can find and restore lost files from your gadget. Installing these tools lead to the loss of your gadget's warranty. Still, if your device is already rooted, then you can install the aforementioned tools and use FonePaw Android Data Recovery for restoring your data.

Furthermore, the program is missing an option to immediately eject the connected Android device. Another thing that bothers me is the fact that you cannot restore any files as long as you're using the trial version of the tool.

However, if none of the drawbacks mean anything to you, then you should give FonePaw Android Data Recovery a try. It might prove to be of good use if you lost or deleted important files from your Android device.
