How to recover deleted Kindle books

Does it sound amazing to own a Kindle by yourself? When you decide to purchase a Kindle Fire HD or Kindle Paperwhite, the device's storage altogether has the capacity classification of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. For many users who bought 8GB and 16GB, their Kindle device is easy to get to full. To release some space, they usually deleted the books they've read, or clear some less important pictures, videos or other data files from it.

Meanwhile, that's how the Kindle recovery tool now becomes popular these days. In addition, users might delete files by mistake, Kindle data can be gone for other reasons, like the format, virus infection, or some unknown external SD card format problems.

Do not despair if you happen to be the one who lost Kindle files by accident. Generally, we would suggest two viable solutions to retrieve Kindle files.

If you deleted files straight from Kindle, they should have gone into your archives collection. To find the folder and redownload it, follow the steps behind.

  • Step 1: Turn on your Kindle, and press the HOME button.
  • Step 2: Press MENU and then select View Archived Items. There you'll see all your files purchased from Amazon.
  • Step 3: Find the book you want and either click it to download and open (the device will probably ask you to turn on your wireless) or flick right and "add to home".

Method 2. Download Kindle recovery tool to restore deleted Kindle files

Another way, which should be direct and fast, to recover files on Kindle is to find a powerful Kindle recovery tool that supports to recover files of ebook file format EPUB, pictures jpg, jpeg, png, git, etc. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is what we recommend. If you don't feel certain about the recovery result, you can try its free data recovery software first, which allows you to recover 2GB data for free.

The lost Kindle files must have been downloaded to Kindle, online file recovery is not supported. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard supports Kindle 2018/2019/2020 and later versions.
