  1. Hi,

    I’ve purchased the full version of the software and followed all the directions. The scan begins and gets stuck at 29% and stays stuck for hours. I literally left it connected to my Mac to scan all night and it’s still stuck on 29% The timer keeps counting down and restarting. There is a photo that was accidentally deleted 2 days ago that I would really love to recover. Is there anything else I can do? Why is it stuck on 29% while scanning. Should I try something else and start over? Was the $59 price tag worth it? If it somehow recovers that one photo, then yes!!

    1. What’s your specific phone model number and Android version please? Can you please capture the screen of the recovery software and send us via email (support at

    1. If the touch screen of your LG phone is broken, you will not be able to enable the USB debugging. you will need to turn on the USB debugging option on the phone before this recovery software can scan your phone and retrieve files from it.
