How does Deep Scan Recovery work?
Deep Scan Recovery utilizes cutting-edge technology to scan your entire device for lost images, videos and audio files. It's able to that by analyzing the following locations on the device:
- Hidden Folders
In computing, a hidden folder (sometimes hidden directory) or hidden file is a folder or file which filesystem utilities do not display by default when showing a directory listing. They are commonly used for storing user preferences or preserving the state of a utility, and are frequently created implicitly by using various utilities. They are not a security mechanism because access is not restricted - usually the intent is simply to not "clutter" the display of the contents of a directory listing with files the user did not directly create (source: Wikipedia).
- Cache Folders
As you use applications, they start storing files to reference later. These files are stored in an app "cache." For instance: When you're using a web browser, it'll save images you've seen so that they don't have to be downloaded every single time the app needs them. This cache saves you time and data (source: Android Police)
Deep Scan Recovery analyzes the files contents and checks for lost images, videos or audio files.
