  • Photo Transfer from iPhone 6s/7 to New Galaxy S8
  • Upload Photos/Videos/Files from Android to OneDrive

  • Please note that you would be better to stop using your smartphone once you lose the important files and want to retrieve them back. As if your deleted data has been overwritten by the new adding contents, you cannot recover them even with the recovery tool.
