    It is a good tool to recover S5 deleted text messages, however, a pity is that it cannot put back the SMS to the Galaxy S5. Hope it to be upgraded soon.

    Tried this software to recover deleted text messages from Samsung Galaxy S5, but some messages are not found. Why?

    • Hi, any data that is overwritten by new data cannot be recovered by this Android Data Recovery. So, the missing SMS should have been overwritten by new files.
