Re: Deleted SMS recovery

i've tried by using X-plorer instead of FExplorer (it's same isn't it?), i've search on all drive C: and D: (memory card) but i did'nt find system folder mentioned. What could be wrong? it's the same version of symbian S60 3rd.

Re: Deleted SMS recovery

done. i've found it.

i've done a little trick. Maybe this could help others in future.

1. i change message store folder from C: to the memory card D:

2. then connect my e63 to computer using USB data cable.

3. i choose mass storage as connection type so the memory card will shown as removable USB mass storage.

4. then from windows explorer, start to search message storage folder (one folder by one folder) in that memory card, don't forget to uncheck the hide hidden file... and hide protected operating system on folders and search option, located in view tab.

5. in my case, i found it in folder named private. Maybe location may vary on other phone. the message folder was named mail2. It's not in system folder like they mentioned.

Dear Sagat,

 

I changed my memory from C: to D: memory card and connected the e63 via USB as suggested and mass storage as connection type but the memory card does not show as removable USB mass storage. Can you let me know where you found this?

 

thanks!

Anya

I HAVE UNCHECKED TEH HIDDEN FILE TAB BUT COULD NOT LOCATE HIDE PROTECTED OPERATING SYSTEMS ON FOLDERS OR THE SEARCH OPTION.... THANK YOU..... PROPER GRATEFUL IF ANYONE CAN HELP.......

Re: Deleted SMS recovery

Ask your local or supreme court. Normally, they have a forensic guy who is called in important trials. That guy might do this job for money for individuals, as well. Its worth a try. However, in some cases he might have to destroy your phone physically to get that information.
