    Good program. Helped me find many contacts on my Galaxy S5. But it is a pity that it cannot recover all missing contacts, which I know were overwritten by new data. Thanks a lot, anyway.

      I also purchased this software. It is helpful to me for I get all contacts back with it. As far as I know, if the missing contacts are not found, they are probably overwritten by new data, so, it is normal that the program cannot recover them.
