    Without even knowing what sort of files you are talking about that's impossible to answer. Though a simple reboot certainly shouldn't remove any files.

    Just to be sure, where were you storing these files: on the device or on removable storage? Were any synced with any cloud service (check, there may be cloud services enabled by default)? And if they are stored on a removable card, is it a new one and are you certain it is what it's supposed to be (there are a lot of fakes out there)?

    I don't have an answer, those are just a few things that come to mind.

    Deleted files were like videos and pictures and i saved them in internal storage... i deleted them like week ago and they just showed up again after i restarted my phone due to 4g not working properly. And i disabled all the photo/video sync

    Check your Google and/or Samsung Cloud backup and restore settings. Oops! I just noticed that Hadron had already identified this potential problem.
