My ZMAX Z970 can't be rooted, at least by me. I can't find where to do that.

I accidentally deleted some videos which were on my sd card.

I have not used the card too much since then and don't plan to until I get this resolved.

I can't find any undelete utility or method that a) is not a scam b) doens't need root access and c) actually works.

How can I do it?


If you think this is a duplicate question, please make sure the duplicate actually has a viable answer to my question. Thanks!

The question pointed to as duplicate does not explain how to use the software on an Android phone or make it see the disk from the PC. I tried the software mentioned in that article and it does not see my phone, only local PC disks. Please enable a fresh answer that breaks it down step by step for SD card on no root android phone. Thanks.

  • @Firelord, that's for a rooted phone. Right?

  • android.stackexchange.com/questions/7069/… I added that in garb of this one. Apologies for that since you demanded no root method. But anyway, its still duplicate in reference to this new link.

  • Photorec (a part of Testdisk collection)(Windows application) did the job for me when I tested it on my friend's micro SD Card once. You may try it.

  • @Firelord, I'm glad it worked for you. Photorec does not see my SD card when I have my phone connected to the PC via USB. What should I do to make it see it? Thanks.
