    Ahh!
    My brother owns the Samsung Galaxy S but it has decided to delete everything off both the internal storage and his SD card!
    Total nightmare

    In his words:

    He is going to try and use some recovery software (Recuva from Piriform) on the SD card, fingers crossed it might be able to get back some of the stuff but is there anything that can be done about the internal storage? Will Recuva work on that too?

    Any help with this would be incredibly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Sounds like he did a hard reset. But even so it shouldn't touch the SD card.

    It's difficult to get things off flash memories once they are deleted....

    The exact same thing happened to me yesterday. I'm on my second galaxy S, the first one froze and was not able to boot anymore and had no recovery mode. Since last month with the new one, everything was fine, but yesterday, it froze up, and I had to remove battery to restart it. It took like 10 minutes to boot. Everything else was fine, and I went to listen some music, but the internal SD was empty, no more music, photos... These phones have a serious problem with their internal SD.
