    is there any possible way to undo a restore from backup?

    i never used used itunes before but my brother does all the time so when i connected the iphone to itunes i clicked that option and it deleted all my photos and notes

    is there any possible way to get at least the notes back? maybe the notes still in temp folder ?

    thank you

    I shouldn't have made any difference, whether your brother has been syncing and you haven't, as long as the device (Phone name) is different in iTunes. The fact that you had never synced, and had no backup to restore to is what wiped you out. Unless you had your data backed up in another location, it is gone.

    usually it does a backup before restoring. if so, do an option+click restore and choose the backup that was created when you wiped your device to restore it prior to the restore.

    If you are talking about the location of your backup, do an option + click restore as Oakie said, and choose your backup.

    There should be a backup, iTunes does a backup before it does a restore.

    Are you talking about a "screenshot" That would be in the camera roll, that you wiped out.

    There is no such thing! The iPhone does not make a backup of itself, on itself.

    I don't think you know what you're asking for....if you never backed up the phone there's no way for the information to be backed up.
