    Hi all!

    I am wondering if anyone can help me. I accidentally factory reset my old Note 3 that had a lot of important pictures on it. I feel like I have tried almost every data recovery program, but I'm running into a couple of problems:

    1. You can't root a Note 3. Well, you can, it's just not easy, and I'm trying not to overwrite any more deleted data by installing apps.

    2. As I'm sure you know, you can no longer mount an Android phone as anything other than a media device or camera, so I can't scan it as an external hard drive with Recuva or anything.

    Do I have any hope at all?

    Just a long shot but have you tried going to Google Photos? They're still holding photos I took with my T-mobile G1 back in the early days.

    Yes, unfortunately I've already tried that. :( Thanks for the idea though!
