Can I recover deleted files from Kindle Fire HD?

Question:

I gave my Kindle Fire to my son and he accidentally erased some of my favarite contents including those PDF documents, photos, movies, songs, and more files. I am wondering if there is a way to recover data lost from my Amazon Kindle device. Please help…

Answer:

Well, since there is no SD port on the Kindle Fire. In addition to the local 16 GB (or 32GB) of flash storage, the Kindle Fire uses sophisticated techniques of splitting processing and storage between the device and the cloud (remote storage). All Kindles now allow unlimited cloud storage for Amazon content.

So, if you have backed up those files in the cloud server, it’s easy to restore all your items.

But if you didn’t have any copies, then:

  • If your Kindle Fire is unlocked (which means you can access your device thorugh a PC or Mac in a way similar to external disk), you can try a data recovery program and see if some of your files can be retrieved.
  • If your Kindle Fire is normal, then it’s almost sure there is no way to recover the data. Because the Kindle Fire is a mini tablet computer version of Amazon.com’s Kindle e-book reader which runs a forked version of Google’s Android operating system.
