You could try 'Undelete for Root Users' in Play. I've never used it.

Try Recuva. Works very well.

I haven't had an N7 for a while. Try going to developer options and checking USB Debugging and see if your laptop will recognize it.

Ok, try the Nexus 7 TOOLKIT. Install it and then use option #1 to install drivers.

ok, did that. nexus drive still won't show up in recuva or wondershare recovery as a drive although it seems to be connected everywhere else. & yes i've restarted my computer & reconnected/restarted my nexus several times.

Ok, I think the problem is going to be assigning a drive letter to an MTP device. There isn't an easy way that I know of. There is supposedly some apps that say they will do it but you have to be rooted. I haven't tried any of them.

ok thanx anyway. i don't think my little file is worth all that trouble. i'll just make another one lol. i've since installed the dumpster program to make it easier to avoid accidental deletions in the future.

Sorry to reply such an old thread. I just want to know whether you have any successful Nexus 7 data recovery case. I cleared all the text messages on my Nexus 7 LTE by a stupid mistake. Any reply will be appreciated.
