Using Recuva with Fire Tablet


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been trying to use Recuva with a Fire 7 tablet, but for some reason the tablet isn't detected by Recuva. I've searched around, and apparently I need to find a way to assign the Fire Tablet a drive letter? I've tried the basic way of doing so through Device Manager, but it doesn't seem to have an option to assign a letter for a portable device, either. Has anyone ever run into this problem? How did you manage to use Recuva with your Fire?

I assume, like regular Android, the Fire doesn't have the ability to mount as a drive.  This feature was removed from Android during Ice Cream, if I remember right.

Does that mean that there is no way to recover deleted files from the Fire using Recuva?

Perhaps look for help on the official Amazon Forum:

Supposedly "there is a way with paid for software" going by results in this search (I haven't tried it, so I don't know the results):

One thing I do know since my mother has umpteen different Amazon Fire Tablets is you can re-download your files (pictures, etc.,) if you synced/backed them up on Amazon cloud servers (I haven't a clue if it does that automatically on it's own accord, or if it was something you had to be doing manually all along so good luck) -- anyways that's what I remember my mother doing when she bought her new Fire Tablet,  she just had it re-downloaded/sync everything which it was able to do automatically.

Not sure it if applies in your case (I don't know if the Fires have a memory card), but a few years back I recovered photos from an old phone by popping out the memory card, sticking into my laptop (with an adapter) and Recuva recovered everything.  If your device does not have a removable memory card, or the files you wanted to recover were on the device storage (and you don't have any sort of cloud sync enabled) then ... 😞
