Recovering Lost Recordings

If you accidentally delete an important recording, there are a few ways to recover the recording if a backup of your device has been made that contains the lost file.

Do not backup or sync your phone after you have lost your files. You risk overwriting your backup that contains the lost files.

About iTunes Backups

iTunes makes a backup of your devices data each day when you sync your device with your computer. This backup contains your devices settings, and some application data. iRecorder recordings are backed-up with the phone backup.
