    I was wondering if doing a factory reset from the note 3 settings will delete all the music and photos i added directly to the device folders.

    It will wipe the internal storage. I don't think it wipes the sd card but you can take that out if you have one.
    If you're rooted and have a custom recovery, you can use that to wipe the data partition. It's the equivalent of a factory reset but it leaves the internal storage alone

    Are you rooted if so don't do the factory reset from the settings menu . only perform from the recovery such as twrp or clockworkmod

    I just did my factory reset and it didn't erase my files on the SD card and all my scrapbooks were backed up through drop box and Samsung's cloud
