Step 3. Scan your Sony Xperia for deleted files
After your Sony Xperia is connected and detected by the program, click “Start” to start analyzing your device.
Note: Before doing this, make sure that your phone battery is more than 20% charged, so that you can get a smooth scan
If your device is not rooted before, the program will directly scan it after the analysis.
Note: For the device that Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android doesn’t support currently, it may lead you to set USB Mass Storage on your device to scan photos, videos, music and documents, or to root your device by yourself (if there is no USB Mass Storage option). All rooted Android devices are supported well. You can choose to do it or not by yourself.
If you rooted your device before, you need to allow the program Superuser authorization on the screen of your device. Just click “Allow” when the message pops out on your device’s home screen. Then back to your computer, and click “Start” on the program’s screen to scan your device.
Note: For some devices, they may ask you to click “Allow” more than one time on your device’s homescreen. It’s normal. Just do it if it askes. It doesn’t matter. Just click it until it doesn’t appear again or the program has begun its real scan.
Do not disconnect your device during the scan, or the scan will fail.
