My phone crashed during software updates. It took me hours to get it back to work. However, all the contacts were gone after a reboot. There are a couple of business contacts that are very important for me. How can i recover those deleted contacts on my android phone

Did you turn on auto backups for your contact info? If so it should be as easy as logging in with the same Google account and resyncing. Occasionally I've had to manually kick of the sync from the settings menu as it hasn't automatically ran for some reason.

It seems rooting is required to recover the contacts.

Hey there smile

Recovering data from SD card is far more complicated than recovering data from a failed HDD. I would turn to a data recovery company if the data is valuable as the guys there have the highest chances of getting the data back to you. Mind that their services can be quite costly. However, you can go with this tutorial first:

Hi, I just saw a video talking about this. Here is the address:
Check it. See if it works.

Inadvertently or intentionally deleting data is a common thing, as long as you can find them before data is overwritten, maybe they're hiding somewhere on the phone, but we can't see it, they will only be found if you scan the phone,no matter what data , like the SMS , image , contacts ,videos ,and other files ,
