Lost the "sdbackup" file today which has all my pics and videos in it. Have never had this problem in 8 years of owning a samsung. What on earth have I done and can I retrieve all my stuff ? I cannot find the file in any trash folder. Please help !
Well here comes the "I'm an *****" bit.
The File has always been called 'sdcardbackup' in the MY FILES section of the phone.
But the S6 doesnt have an SD Memory Card Slot, otherwise I could just simply remove the cardand try it on another device, or retry on the S6.
Thats why I am confused.
Oh ok I skipped the S6 myself so didn't know about the SD card, did you have any backup setup on the phone like to the Samsung account or google that would have those backed up? (hopefully a S6 user may help on thread)
Well thats what I am hoping.
I am home on Saturday when I will have access to my laptop. Another user has suggested logging into Samsung Kies and it should all be there hopefully. I really need to educate myself on GOOGLE DRIVE storage etc so this never happens again.
Although I dont have all that I lost backed up on usb memory sticks, I do have most, so its not a complete disaster, just a rather harsh lesson in making sure my things are always backed up, and how 'Cloud Storage works'.
Thanku for taking the time to help and for not trashing me for my *****ity lol
