A BlackBerry recovery is a process in which a BlackBerry mobile phone is restored to normal working conditions. It is a countermeasure used to recover important files and data from a BlackBerry device that experiences a crash, corruption or any other critical malfunction.
A BlackBerry device can be recovered through vendor provided utility or third-party data applications. The native BlackBerry Protect application allows a user to create a backup of contacts, calendars, messages, browser bookmarks and other device-specific personal data. Users can restore BlackBerry devices using this data or by copying it to a new device.
Moreover, third-party software and data stored on a local secure digital (SD) card can be recovered if it is accidentally deleted, formatted or removed through malicious activities.
