Connection

Q: Why my Android device can't be detected by the program?
A: First of all, please install the right USB driver for your Android on your computer and enable USB debugging on your device. Then, if there is a message box popping up on your phone screen to ask whether to allow USB debugging when running the program, click "OK" to always allow USB debugging on your phone. If the problem still exists, check if it is caused by broken USB cable or PC port. To check this, please change another USB cable or computer to have a try.
Q: How to install correct driver for my Android device?
A: When connecting your device to the program, if there's no driver detected, there will be a pop-up prompt which will remind you to install the driver first. Click "Install". If the driver has been installed successfully but it still can’t be detected, please check whether the driver is disabled under "Device Manager". You can find the driver in Computer>Properties>Device Manager>Potable Device>Android Phone. Right click the certain node and check whether it is disabled. If it is, click "Enable" and the device will be connected to the computer successfully.

If there is no prompt to remind you, you can find the corresponding drivers from the official website of the phone manufactures. For example:

A: Please make sure your device is rooted and connected to your computer all the time when running the software. You can check your device with “Root Checker” app to see whether it has been rooted or not:
http://root-checker.en.uptodown.com/android

If it isn’t rooted successfully, please root your device again. After that, you can turn off the software, unplug your device and then try it again step by step.
Sometimes, it may be caused by multiple operations at one time in running different programs. Please turn off all the programs and then reopen our program to see if it works. If it still doesn’t work, please uninstall and install our program again and then launch it.
Q: I have already rooted my phone, but I still cannot find my lost files. Why is that?
