    Hey Guys, I was doing some cleaning up on my internal storage and something has went terribly wrong. I was deleting some folders that had nothing in them and during that process POOF! Everything on my internal storage is GONE! All Pics, downloads, everything.... OMG


    Did I delete a folder that links to all my stuff? I know that using ES Explorer app I was always in the directory called 0/emulated/etc... (I don't know the exact wording) but I know I didn't delete 28GB worth because it would take a few minutes to delete all that and all the folders I was deleting would delete in 1-2 seconds.

    I know my stuff has to be on my phone but I can not get back to it. Does anybody have a fix? OMG I pray that all my stuff is still on my phone but I can't find anymore.... HELP!

    Should I boot into TWRP and fix permissions or something or use an app of some kind?

    BTW, where did the "Nexus 5/all things root" forum go to?

    This is very strange... my games can see the .obb file that it needs to be able to run (which is /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/obb but I can not see it anymore so it still has to be on my phone along with all my pics, music, etc but I can no longer see it but any game that uses .obb files can see it... I don't know what happened when I was cleaning up my Internal Memory? Could I have deleted a .folder (which are hidden)?


    I think I deleted the .estrongs folder because the one that is there now has today as the creation date and I don't have a backup of the old one. That folder keeps a database of the folder it's in, right?

    I just opened my alarm clock and it can select my music that I copied to my phone and it plays the music fine but when I open my Internal SD card using a file explorer my music doesn't show up and under my android system setting the storage space says that I have 23 GB free! So what gives? How can I get my lost files/folders back to where they should be? It seems like a link is broken or something? I just don't know...
