    How can the deleted files be retrieved on Android HTC Evo 4G?

    I deleted my ringtones on the phone while trying to clear the memory and I doubt I cleared the built in ones too as I canít find them. How can I get back the deleted folders?

    Your description of the issue does not mention whether your phone is stocked or rooted. If your phone is stocked, you will not be able to delete your built-in files. They would be still there, only a thorough check is needed to reveal them. In case you don’t find them still, go to ‘settings’ and then select ‘media’ from it. From ‘media’ select ‘audio’ followed by ‘notifications/ringtones’. You would find your ringtones in this folder. In case you do not find them, reboot your phone and search in the same folder they would be there. If you have a back up you could try the factory reset which would bring them back. In case of rooted phones, I’m not sure a restore would bring them back. You could search for apps that do the job at the app store. If it has been a long time since you have lost them, the chances to get them back are thin.

    hey friend..

    I am sorry to say this but its not possible to recover the ringtones from your phone once you have deleted them from it ...
    There is only one way to get back all your ringotnes again only if you have a backup of all your phone data into your phone or into your pc/laptop....
    However you can also try out by taking backup of your phone first and then factory reset your phone ..
    Might be possible you will get back all your ringtones..

    If you do have the backup into your pc/laptop then just connect your phone with the laptop/pc and then open the pc suite you use to connect your phone with the pc .... There you must be having an option of backup ..
    Just click there and click on restore backup ...
    Then search or browse for the backup file on your pc and then click ok to install it back into your phone ....

    Also i would like to suggest you not to use any 3rd party software or app for this purpose ...
    Using these type of apps or software can harm your phone in any way ..
    Try out these steps and also make sure to regularly take a backup of your phone's data..

    hope i helped..
    thanks ..

    Solution:


    1. If you have the previous backup then you can restored the device,

    so that you get the delete ringtone on your device.

    2. If you delete the ringtone which is coming with the OS,then you can

    factory reset the device ,so that all ringtone will back.
