Last friday, my Samsung smartphone somehow performed a factory reset. I do not know why (it fell on the ground, or my son triggered something, but that does not matter now).
I noticed it when during booting, I saw the samsung letters and after that the 'let's get started' screen where I had to choose a language to setup the phone. I lost everything that was on my smartphone including some pictures. Most stupid of course, but I know I setup google photos to automatically backup my photos. However, when I checked google online, not 1 image was there so, I lost everything that was on my smartphone. I can live with that for most of the pictures but some I would like to get back somehow.
I tried to recover my data using several apps on my computer. dr fone for android, fonelab for android, easeus data recovery.
Dr Fone took some time before completing with saying nothing could be found because I do not have root access on my samsung smartphone.
I already looked into rooting the phone but as far as I could read, rooting would cause a data wipe which I do not.
Is there any chance / method to recover data from my phone and how should I do that? The device is a Samsung A6 SM-A600FN (2018).
