While recovery tools have taken the software market by storm in the last few years, and many of us have started to think there are too many of them, nobody can deny their usefulness in times of crisis.

Shining Samsung Data Recovery is one such application whose purpose is to retrieve inaccessible data from your Samsung phone or tablet in an approachable environment that requires minimal effort on your side.

First of all, users should know that the application sports an intuitive GUI that makes navigation a breeze. The familiar user interface it proposes comes in handy especially if you are not that tech-savvy and simply want to salvage your data from an Android device.

Once you have connected your Samsung phone or tablet to the PC using a USB cable, and the application has recognized it, you are asked to choose the types of files you want to recover. Your options in this regard are contacts, messages, message attachments, call history, gallery, picture library, videos, audio, and documents.

When this step is complete, you are free to preview any of your files so that you only save the ones that are relevant to you. Note that you can do that even though the scan has not been completed, and further items can be added along the way, which is great since it saves time.

Aside from that, before starting the recovery process, all that’s left for you to do is indicate an output folder.

On an ending note, Shining Samsung Data Recovery is a handy program designed to help you regain access to your lost data. The program is aimed at Samsung device owners only, which is quite a narrow purpose in itself, but the performance it has proved during our tests along with its characteristic ease of use recommend it as a solution anyone could benefit from.
