What is LOST.DIR folder? How can I retrieve my files from lost.dir files with the easiest way? LOST.DIR file folder in Android devices performs like the Recycle Bin on Windows platforms, from which you are allowed to retrieve files like documents and photos. Usually, as you were saving files but suddenly the devices just turned off, or you pulled out the external sd card while the read-write process is carrying on, Android phones or tablets will create the LOST.DIR directory so that the files can be recovered the next time you boot up the device.

But it’s not an easy job to recover the lost files from LOST.DIR just like you do from Windows Recycle Bin. Why is that? You’ll have difficulty in finding the specific files that you’re trying to recover, because the files in LOST.DIR are named with random numbers instead of the original names as given. To overcome this difficulty, you need the help of a proficient data recovery solution.
