Samsung Galaxy S :: Deleted All Folders - Files - How To Recover
Nov 10, 2010
I purchased an unlocked and unbranded Samsung Galaxy S i9000 from Amazon.
After playing around with it for some time, installing all sorts and getting to know how to use it I decided I would perform a factory reset to "clean" it before continuing to use it "properly".
Before performing the factory reset I navigated to "My Files", selected delete, then selected every single folder and file and deleted them.
I then performed the factory reset.
Now I am missing 4 images which were available as wallpaper in "gallery" and probably several other files/folders.
I thought the factory reset would return the phone to its original state and reproduce any folders/files I may have deleted in the process. I thought they might be stored in a hidden "partition" or similar which I had no access to.
Anyway my questions are how can I restore my phone to its original state and which other files/folders would have been present initially but have now been deleted by me?
I thought i was messaging myself some videos of my 3 year old, but apparently they did not attach to the messages i was emailing myself... I deleted them... Does anyone know of a way to recover deleted video files?
I need to recover deleted files from my Android Tablet internal storage folder ( /mnt/sdcard ). This is mounted like a fuse filesystem. I've run Hexamob Recovery PRO from Android Market in my smartphone and it recovered very good some deleted files from my vfat storage folders (both internal and external sd card).
But the smartphone version is not running correctly in my Motorola Xoom because it don't detect internal storage (fuse). I asked to developers about a tablet version and they said me they are working in a tablet version but fuse file system is very hard to manage. Any other app to recover my deleted files from a fuse file system?
I'm using a galaxy nexus, with jellybean, yakju (not rooted) I accidentally deleted all my photos and i really want them back i searched around but most of the recoveris need it to be in mass storage mode, but the galaxy nexus has internal memory and uses MTP. How can I recover my files??
I have a Galaxy S3, and I noticed that my thumbnails cache was absolutely massive. It grew to 9.6 GB in size. Using Root Explorer, I deleted the .thumbdata3 file and replaced it with a blank file. I noticed that my free space remained 550 MB. I rebooted the device, and it was still reporting only 550 MB free, but there is no sign of the 9.6 GB file anymore. The new .thumbdata3 file reports that it is 0 kb. Next, I tried deleting the .thumbnails folder entirely, thinking maybe the old file was still there someplace. I created a new .thumbnails folder, and created a new .thumbdata3 folder inside of it. After deleting the 9.6 GB thumb file, and the approximately 750 MB worth of photos that were in .thumbnails, my device still shows that only 550 MB is free.
How can this be? I searched the entire device using Root Explorer for any files or folders containing ".thumb," and the 9.6 GB file is definitely gone.
my wife deleted all her photos trying to upload them all onto dropbox. I have downloaded many data recovery programs like stella phoenix and dr fone but i am unable to make the programs see my phone. I need to try enable mass storage but i know when we upgraded to 4.3 that setting went to mtp and ptp but no mass storage.
I've searched high and low for a location of deleted items but have been unsuccessful. I'm just trying to recover a video I accidentally deleted (a "home movie" I made with the phone itself). Anyone know how to recover a deleted file or at least know where to find them?
I recently bought the Samsung Vibrant phone. I am a little intimidated by it but trying to learn things, but have two questions I need to find answers for quickly - for business reasons.
I found out how to put a file on my computer, but not how to name it...i.e. clients...that type of thing....
AND the guy that talked me into this said that I would be able to access my home computer with this phone so if I needed to send a file while away from the house, I could do that. BUT I cant seem to find that.
AND LASTLY...there seem to be a lot of aps on the phone already that I done want or wont use, but the TMobile guy (who uses a blackberry) could not seem to figure out how to get rid of them.
ALSO...for anyone looking for some cool covers for the phone...decalgirl.com has some great skins for the phone AND the Realook screne protector is wonderful...changes nothing and cant tell it is there, but do follow the directions as to the water to take all dust out of the air.
I are following this guide: RECOVERY V4.6.2 (Page 1) - Release - Android and other StuffBut I get a problem when i run the "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" command. ADB is up and working, and do find my phone when i do a adb devices command. When ADB is < Waiting for device >, I press call and power on at the same time tio enter fastboot mode, but the adb doesnt react, and the phone boots normaly. Ive also tried to enter the fastboot flash command just after ive enterd fastboot mode with my phone, but nothing happends.I have have rectools and the img in the tools folder. anyone know what could be wrong?
I'm trying to recover deleted photos from my android phone so I downloaded the Remo Recover for Android software. Problem is when I plug in my phone, open the usb mass storage, and click Recover Deleted Files, it says, "Android device not connected! A Cable might be unplugged!" My computer is recognizing the device, but for some reason it's still saying this but I know it doesn't have anything to do with the cable.
I have a Bell Mobility Galaxy S Vibrant I9000m. For some reason today, it won't successfully boot. I have not rooted, unlocked, etc. I can boot it into recovery mode volume/home/power, but before I try a hard reset, I'd like to get the photos and videos of my son's birthday off. I believe the default of those apps is to save to phone. I am able to connect to ADB, I think. Well, it connected to something.
One more time the Samsung kies has fail to update my galaxy s. I have done the below mentioned procedure. Firstly, make sure to backup all the important data present on your device. Download Samsung Kies version 184.108.40.20674_45 or something that is not the latest, you will need to uninstall the latest then install this one.
1. Connect your phone and open Samsung Kies and let you phone be detected as usual. 2. Keep Kies open, minimize it and run regedit in windows. 3. Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSamsungKiesDeviceDB 4. You should see some folders, named 1,2,3 etc in that folder, look for the one that mentions your current firmware, IMEI number, etc. 5. Once you find the correct folder (only one folder mentions this information), you need to modify 3 strings by simply double-clicking on them. 6. Locate the following 3 entries and change their value to the ones shown below. (You may first like to backup their value data to a notepad file).
SoftwareRevision = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3 ProductCode = GT-I9000HKDXEE HIDSWVER = I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3 Now close the Registry editor and do a Refresh. So, while Kies is minimized and still open and connected to your phone, you have changed these 3 strings.
7. Click on "Firmware Upgrade" button in Kies and you should now see Kies saying there is one upgrade for JP6. Now wait and let the upgrade process to complete. Note: "The above procedure is said to be working perfectly but try it at your own risk. Also, flashing will result in loosing the root if you were rooted."
After doing all this thing my kies has given message that upgrade is not done please remove the cable from your phone and recover software.
I have a SAMSUNG Galaxy SII, and a Sandisc 16 GB HD micro SD card, 3 days ago I noticed a notification that says:"SD card blank or has unsupported filesystem"
I tried several times to take it off and put it back but with no luck, I put the card in the card reader & connected it to my laptop, the laptop (windows 7) did't recognized it either, and it suggested to do FORMAT to the card, So I did, and choose to format to FAT32 system..I was sure that recovery programs will recover my photos and videos...
I tried 4 programs to recover them, no single photo was recovered, it just looks like a brand new Sd card now...the card now is working normally now...
All pictures on my Samsung Galaxy S2 have accidentally been deleted. The files were on the mobiles internal memory & not a memory card. The mobile has not been rooted.

I am using Galaxy S i9000 for over a month now and have noticed that videos getting automatically deleted from the phone. This has been happening for quite sometime now, earlier thought it might be overwritten while transferring but there on always made sure that the data is copied by browsing phone as a mass storage.
I am using Samsung galaxy S2 (jelly bean 4.1.2). My question is if I delete a contact from my phone that is also on what's app then while deleting that contact android shows this message:-"This contact contains information from multiple accounts. Information from read only accounts will be hidden in your contacts lists, not deleted". This means that contact is not being deleted but hidden somewhere in contacts lists. I want to know how can I recover those hidden contacts.
I just learned how to root my Droid X tonight and was going through the "pre-approved' list of "deletable file" and ended up deleting my Text Messages icon and have been unable to open texting and this sucks. HOw can I get it back on my phone so I can send/receive text?
Had my Samsung Galaxy S this week and love it......my mates in work have iPhones and they say they can create folders on thier pages, name them accordinaly (music, pictures, apps etc.....) and then place the corresponding data, media etc..... in them, so they are all placed in specific folders.. Is this avaiable to do on the Galaxy S? Is there a app out there for it?
