Learn to Add Recycle Bin on Android with Dumpster

Things are pretty simple with your computer: when you accidentally erase any file, then you go to recycle bin and restore that file and relapse back in your internal storage. But what about your Android device? This works on the Linux-based operating system, so when you delete any file, then it gets permanently deleted from your device as there is no recycle bin there to revert back the file that you have deleted.

Do you dream of a Recycle Bin even in such conditions? There is a way to add some sort of a recycle bin feature in your Android device in order to make your data secure from being deleted by yourself or any other person too. And the process is extremely easy as it is just based on a simple Android app that will temporary store all sorts of deleted files that you can restore.

For that to be possible, you’ll need to use the Dumpster App which is available on Google Play Store for free. Let me tell you from the start that no rooting is needed, but if you choose to root your Android device, then you will get improved performance. No internet connection is required either and yet, you can restore deleted pictures, music files, videos and pretty much almost any file type (pdf, mp3, doc, Avi, mp4, jpg, png, rar, ogg, txt and even apps.
