I have accidentally deleted a file from my kindle fire, do you know how I can recover it? I've tryed with Stellar Phoenix for windows but my laptop does not see the kindle as an external memories and I cannot scan it. Do you know any other software or app to recover deleted files?
do you know any app which creates a recycle bin?
Thanks to each of you that may help

Is it a personal document or a Kindle book? If it's a Kindle book, just download it again from the cloud/archives.

I don't have an suggestions if it was a personal document.

I did that a few weeks ago ... <blush> But, you say "a file". If you mean a book ...

Immediately called Kindle support, explained what happened and told them the book title. They fixed it in about 10 seconds.

If you're talking about some other kind of file (PDF, etc.), I think you're probably SOL. Don't know of any "recycle bin" apps.

If it's not content you bought from Amazon, for example personal documents or other files (MP3s, MP4s, pictures, etc.) that you transferred over yourself, as far as I know there is no way to recover those documents.

Thanks guys, yes, actually it's a personal document I created with the KF, not a book. Soooo, no way to get it back, right?

Nope. If you did not back up the document somewhere then it is gone for good when you delete it.

but will they go back to the same levels she was on?

I'm not sure on that - if they were just deleted by pressing on them and selecting remove from device, the levels may be stored.

No. They will be at level 1.

Edited to correct typo.

No the games will all start over unless the games were a part of Game Circle and she backed them up. By the way, this is not instant chat, you need to be patient and wait for people to answer you.

My Kindle Fire was stolen and pawned for cash. The thief apparently cleared most of my applications and photos from the Kindle. Is there any way to restore it to the pre-theft condition. The Kindle was recovered by the Police and returned to me.
