What To Do When You Lose Data At The Very Beginning

There are important things to consider in order to prevent total data loss on your iPhone.

1 First, you need to ensure that you do not use the iPhone from which you have lost the data just after the data gets lost. Using your iPhone after the data disappears is putting the data at total risk. For instance, if you want to scan and recover videos from your iPhone directly, you can do it successfully unless you use your iPhone causing you to tamper with lost data that could be restored back.

2 Secondly, you should not sync your iPhone with iTunes anymore after you find that your important data is lost. When your videos disappear from your iPhone mysteriously, you always have the chance to restore them all back again but when you sync your iPhone with iTunes the backup file of your lost videos will be updated and this makes it impossible to recover the lost videos.

3 Lastly, you should not restart your iPhone. When you accidentally delete some of the data then again restart your iPhone you will loose the data completely from your iPhone making it hard to get them back
