It is common to see people deleted files from their Android phones by accident. Perhaps, you are maybe one of them. The most important thing to remember is that, once the deleting happens, don't use your Android phones again. Otherwise, the new file will overwrite the deleted files. And then, you may have no change to get them back.

Note: If you still get this window and the USB debugging has been enabled, please try to disable it and reset it again.
Step 3. Scan your Samsung Galaxy S3 for deleted text messages
Once your Samsung Galaxy S3 is detected, the program will ask you to click the "Start" button to start analyzing your phone's data.
