How to Recover Lost Data from iPad Mini

-- Wednesday, January 29, 2014
For me, I like to have numerous videos stored in my iPad so that I could obtain amusement whenever I feel bored. However, when last night I tried to transfer new movie series to my iPad Air2 , it got stuck and automatically restart. When trying again to copy videos, I found my old ones are missing. Sad! But luckily I have iOS Data Recovery.
Now try the free trial version and you know it's worthy!
