DiskDigger for Android updates!

I'm thrilled to announce the latest update to the Android versions of DiskDigger and DiskDigger Pro (for rooted devices only)! This update features a redesigned and improved user interface, improved performance, and more powerful filtering options:

  • The user interface has been cleaned up and simplified to feature search results more prominently, while placing recovery options and settings into the Action Bar on top.
  • You may select between a List or Grid view for viewing recoverable files, as well as small, medium, or large thumbnails, for optimal browsing of search results (tap the Settings icon in the Action Bar).
  • Each search result now has an options menu for recovering the individual result, as well as a checkbox for selecting multiple recoverable files for recovery.
  • Tapping on a search result will bring up a Preview window with an enlarged thumbnail and additional information about the recoverable file.
  • You may now filter the search results by date, although this only applies to .JPG and .TIFF files (tap the Settings icon in the Action Bar).


DiskDigger for Android is available for free from the Google Play Store, and can recover photos (.JPG), images (.PNG), and videos (.MP4, .3GP). If you need to recover other types of files from your Android device, please try DiskDigger Pro!

Huge updates for Android!

I’m pleased to announce the release of DiskDigger Pro for Android!

This includes support for .JPG photos, .MP3 and .WAV audio, .MP4 and .3GP video, raw camera formats, Microsoft Office files (.DOC, .XLS, .PPT), and more!

More love for Linux users!

The latest release of DiskDigger focuses heavily on improved compatibility with Linux (using Mono).  Extensive testing was done on various flavors of Linux, as well as FreeBSD, and I’m happy to say that DiskDigger can now perform just as well on these platforms as it does in Windows.  Refer to this page for instructions on getting DiskDigger up and running in Linux.
