    So when I had Android I used my PC's Data Recovery software like EaseUS Data Recovery to easily get back deleted stuff from SD Card. And my Lumia 640XL with Windows 8.1 isn't getting detected by any of the PC Recovery Softwares. Any chance Windows 10 Mobile MIGHT HAVE THIS FEATURE IN THE FUTURE ?? Or is it hardware related?? Cause seriously I hate it when I accidentally delete photos and media files that I didn't keep in my PC (And DON'T tell me to backup to OneDrive lol) . . Not asking for much, just enough to Live in the WindowsPhone life

    Can't you still do that if your media is stored on the microSD card by default? You can always connect the microSD card to your PC and use any recovery software to scan for accidently deleted files.

    And for stuff on the internal memory forget it. This is not hardware related but security.

    Dayuuum really?? But the only way I found was by taking the SD Card out and THEN using a Card Reader to plug it on PC and THEN trying to Recover. Or was I googling wrong? (No good WP articles found)

    Also EaseUS Data Recovery as well as a few more software can't detect my Phone's Internal OR Memory Card Drive when I plug it in my PC. Am I doing it wrong or do I need some other plugin or something?

    Just to be clear.
    You will not be able to recover deleted data on the internal memory of your phone. Actual nobody can access the internal memory of a windows phone (maybe NSA like organizations and Bill G excluded)

    On a SD card it should be possible if you put the card in your PC and use a recovery program. But are you saying that your SD card is not detected at all by your PC?
    If so then your card is broken or you use XP (without a hotfix for SDXC cards) or your card reader is broken or does not support SDXC cards.

    You can't access the card when its plugged into the phone. You'll have to plug in the card directly to the PC.

    Now your SD card is still in your phone.
    But what if you (physically) get your SD card out your phone and put it in the card reader from your PC what doe you see then.

    Lol.... I thought you were trying all this time by removing your card from your phone and using a card reader. xandros9 and Harrie-S are correct, you won't be able to use any recovery software till you remove it from your phone and use a card reader

    Then I fear you will loose the bet. There is no reason why in W10 the security standard will be lowered.
    But anyway good luck.

    Ok so I researched alittle bit more and found the problem. Reason why it's not detecting my phone because Lumia 8.1 aren't natively considered to be a Mass Storage USB Device. So as far these 2 verified articles state, USB Mass Storage will be supported on Windows 10 Mobiles. But when that's gonna happen no one knows lol. Still, Microsoft shouldn't keep it's Users in the shadows all the time. Jeez I'm losing hope hahaha.
