    Ok.. the obvious question is where did you have them backed up to?

    misc files are usually not important anyway. what files are you missing in the first place?

    If you didn't backup, then they're all gone. You can recover something when there's nothing to recover them from.

    Where were they to begin with? Were they stored on the devices internal memory or on an external SD Card.

    If the latter, you can try an app called recuva to get them back. If the former, they're gone.

    No offence, but I'm not sure what you'd expect if you deleted them without having a backup?

    If you want a cloud backup, take a look at Dropbox or Google Photos. Both can automatically backup media files on your device to the cloud when you're connected to a wifi network.

    There are utilities like Disk Digger and others on Google Play that you can try. To be completely honest, I have not had much luck using them, but maybe you will have more success than I had.

    Do a search in the Play Store using the key words "File Recovery" and there may be more utilities to try.
