"Hello, could anyone suggest how I can recover deleted data from OnePlus phones? In my case, I need an important audio file (*.aac). I have licensed data recovery software on my Windows laptop, but that software cannot identify my connected OnePlus device (7 Pro) as MTP rather than Mass Storage (drive).

Knowing the reasons that cause data loss on your OnePlus phone can help you avoid trapping into the same trouble next time. We conclude the possible culprits below:

  • Accidental deletion.
  • Factory reset.
  • SD card formatting.
  • Malware or virus attack.
  • Forget the screen lock passcode.

Yes. It's possible to recover deleted data from the OnePlus phone. When deleting something from your device, it was moved to an invisible section and made room for new files. That is to say, you still have a chance to get it back. However, you can only recover it via a professional recovery tool.

Besides, there are also some helpful things you should know before making OnePlus 6 data recovery:

  1. Stop accessing your phone as soon as possible since a single phone call or messaging will create new data to overwrite the old deleted content.
  2. Immediately turn off the Wi-Fi and mobile data or switch on the AirPlane mode.
  3. Power off your phone unless you find any way to get the deleted files back.
  4. Avoid downloading any recovery apps on the phone.

  • adb.exe
  • adb-windows.exe
  • AdbWinApi.dll
  • AdbWinUsbApi.dll
  • fastboot.exe

8. Connect your Android phone to the system and ensure that you have enabled the USB debugging beforehand.

12. Open a new command window and type in the following commands:

adb shell


mkfifo /cache/myfifo

ftpput -v -u qwer -p pass -p 40 mmcblk0p27.raw /cache/myfifo

Afterward, FileZilla will copy the phone data to folder 000, but the recovery process isn't completed yet.

14. Download a VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) tool from here to convert the RAW file into VHD format so that you can mount it on your computer.

15. Copy the VHDTool.exe file in the working folder 000 in our case.

16. Open a console window again, go to the folder, and type the following commands:

cd C:/cygwin64/000 VhdTool.exe /convert mmcblk0p27.raw

17. Head over to the Disk Management settings on your Windows PC > Settings > Action > Attach VHD.

18. Offer C:\cygwin\nexus\mmcblk0p12.raw when it asks for a location. Note that the file name may be different here.

19. Right-click it and choose the Initialize Disk option > GPT.

20. Right-click the empty space and pick New Simple Volume.

21. Assign a new letter to the drive and disable the partitioning to complete the wizard.
