    So i accidentally deleted files from my voice recorder app that had recorded lectures I need.

    I know there are apps for rooted phones to recover files but mine is not rooted and I would guess rooting and downloading new apps would overwrite the deleted files still in the phone and they will be lost forever. They were saved in internal storage not SD card

    Does anyone know if I can download a file recovery on my computer and plug the phone in so I don't have to root? Or if the file will still be there if I root

    Im really freaking out here and appreciate any help.

    There's a bunch of different software available for doing this, I've never tried any of them so I won't link any specific ones but if you search for "recover deleted files android".. you'll get a bunch of results.
    This is one that I just randomly found if you wanna watch the tutorial:
    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    The most effective way would be to root, mount your internal SD, and hope a third party recovery utility could find them. Audio files may be a bit more difficult to recover opposed to something like photos or .txts.
