    Sorry to say but unless you got it backed up somewhere then it's gone.

    Even though I'm pretty good about saving backups on my pc. I still lose data once in a blue moon and lemme tell ya, it sux! Especially when it's important things that can be replaced.

    You can restore deleted internal from a backup bro. Just as you can restore apps and data from a backup without restoring the entire backup. Gotta know what you're doing though. There are rules to what you can and cannot due.

    As for a fully deleted internal. It is what it is bro..... deleted. Unless there's something new or different about the S3 that is. If so, I have yet to read about it.

    Ok, this might be too little too late but if you haven't done anything to your SD card, you may able to get some data back.

    First, down load and install Recuva to your PC


    Then put the micro SD card to a card reader and put it into your PC/Laptop. Run the Recuca program and scan the SD card. If nothing has been over written, you can get the deleted files/data.

    I deleted a back up file from titanium back up by pressing delete instead of restore. I ran the above instruction and recovered my deleted files. This is from my experience doing data recovery in the past. :D

    Good luck...hope it's not too late or for future use. :)

    If your SD card is corrupted that your laptop can't recognize or read the SD drive then you have a bigger issue. You'll need to run some additional steps such as chkdsk, TestDisk (recovery program), and etc. There are a lot of other programs but TestDisk is simple but great DOS program I have used in the past with good results. If the step by step below is complicated try searching on Youtube for how to guide. Good luck.
