    I tried your software, but I couldn’t get all my voice memos is because I have not purchased a license yet? I need to know b4 I purchase a license. Please help Asap.

    • No, it has nothing to do with the free trial version. actually what the free trial version can find is what the full version can recover.
      I suggest you to use iMyfone D-Back again to confirm whether your voice memos can be found. If still without good result, I guess your voice memos have been overwritten.
