    Part 2. Protect Your Data on Android from Deleting

    As the data and information on your Android device should be really important for you, to prevent it from getting deleted or lost, there are few things you need to pay attention to:

    1. Do not reset your device easily. The factory reset would wipe out all of your data, so please do not do the reset thing except you are going to sell it and decide to discard it.

    2. Back up data. Actually, it would be better to back up your Android phone regularly so that you can easily get back anything from Xiaomi or Redmi one day when encountering data loss.And if you decide to update or root your Android, it is necessary to back it up before you start the stuff.

    3. Set up the lock screen password to prevent data from deleting by others. Sometimes your friends may pick up you device and play a trick on it. Unfortunately, some of the important data lost and you could do nothing. And what's more, setting up the screen lock can also avoiding the children to play your device as a funny toy.

    You are done! By the way, you can also retrieve other Android files, such as contacts, messages, call history, WhatsApp, WhatsApp attachments, audio, and documents. And you can directly recover photos/videos from external SD card with Android Photo Recovery.
