Default Restoring phone data/contacts/apps from PC to Galaxy Note

Hi there
I connected my Galaxy Note N7000 to my laptop using the USB cable. I copied the entire phone data and pasted it onto a folder on my laptop. Then I restored the phone to original settings. After this, I copied the entire data from the folder I created on laptop, and pasted this data back onto the phone. Now, this data sits in a folder "Misc" on my phone; it includes contacts and everything. I was thinking if I copy-paste it back from laptop to phone, all files will automatically restore to original condition. But it did not happen. What should I do now?
Can anyone help me with the above situation please?
Cheers

Hi, welcome to Android Forums! If you had a Google account that you were signed into on the device before you reset it, you should be able to just sign in and things (gmail, contacts, calendar) should sync back

Welcome, in the future you might try an app such as Airdroid, it makes it simple to send and receive files between your pc and device. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid&feature=nav_result
