    I did something very daft. I restored factory settings on my phone due to the screen flickering. And didn't back it up.
    Now I've lost all my photos, music...everything. Now I think they're saved on the sd card inserted but I can't access them. Is there any way to restore them. :(
    What I don't understand is when I go to gallery, it still shows 1500+ photos and 270 camera images but when I select them I simply get a black square with a mountain and an exclamation mark...but I can view the details of them...date they were taken etc. When I go to my files it lists all the photos but instead of seeing the mini photo I see the standard yellow flower icon. It also says that 3.5GB is being used for images? Is there anything I can do?
