    Question Have deleted all folders/files. How to recover?

    Hi please can somebody help me?.......

    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?

    Many thanks for any help.

    Flash it with a new (or same) firmware and make sure re-partition is checked.

    Hi! I may be in over my head . . . but, I was attempting to delete several images in my gallery, and thought I was deleting them, when in fact, I ended up deleting ALL of my images . . . mainly photos, but a couple of videos. Is there any way to recover them, or am I "toast"?

    Where they the ones you put on the phone.

    I'd say toast, but there are file recovery programs out there that may be able to recover the lost data. Rule 1: Don't add any more data to the area you deleted the data as you may overwrite the deleted data.

    You have to rely on the third party data recovery program if you want to recover deleted all folders files from Samsung Galaxy. I recommend Samsung Data Recovery for Windows for you. easy to use with good function.
