Is there a way to restore deleted songs and pictures from my iPod Touch 4G?
How do I recover music and pictures lost in an update to an iPod Touch?
I accidentally deleted some of my favorite music off of my iPod Touch 4th generation (8g) And I can’t figure out how to get it back. Thanks for the help.
As a iPod Touch holder, we usually open it up to listen to some music on the way to work. But a iPod without songs is about as useless as a screen door on a submarine. For some reasons your iPod songs are gone. That’s maybe you accidentally deleted them off your iPod, or perhaps you attempted to sync the iPod with a different computer, or lost your songs due to any other reason.
First I can tell you that the music you wrongly deleted doesn’t actually get permanently erased. You can manually recover music from your iPod Touch 4G or use a third-party recovery software to do the heavy lifting for you. Either way, if you’ve synced new songs to your iTouch since the deletion happened, you might risk losing the old songs forever.
Maybe some people recommend you to re-sync your iPod to iTunes. But believe me, you should stop using your iPod immediately once you discover that songs have been deleted. Do not plug it into any computer to sync with iTunes until you recover the files.
Here I’ll describe the whole iPod music recovery process for you with a recovery software – iPod Touch Data Recovery. It is specially designed to recover lost or deleted files directly from iPod Touch 4G, as well as iPhone 5/4S, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1. Or it can recover music and photos from iPod Touch and other iOS devices by extracting the previous iTunes backup files. It supports the newest iOS 6 when you use this recovery mode! No matter what situation your iPod is in, e.g. corrupt, formatted, etc. No matter what files you want to find back, e.g Camera Roll Photos, Camera Roll Videos, Photo Stream, Contacts, Messages, Message attachments, Call history, Calendar, Notes, Reminder, Safari bookmark, Voice memos, etc.
