General Data Recovery Notes
inG8 cannot guarantee any specific data will be recovered. Deleted data is volatile and may simply not exist anymore for recovery. Sometimes, partial data recovery is possible. In these cases, inG8 may only be able to recover a portion of a message or photo. inG8 attempts to remove duplicate data that has been recovered. This means that if a text message was deleted but several copies of the message are recovered, inG8 will only display one copy of the recovered message. Exceptions to this occur when partial messages are recovered. If a message has a duplicate that was recovered but only a portion of the message was recovered, inG8 will display both or all copies of the messages that do not match exactly.
