    Forget about it.
    After being reset 8 times, I doubt even the most advanced data recovery could rescue you.

    even if i reset it in a short amount of time, it may have even been 5 or 6 times not a 100% sure

    You need to take charge of that going cray, cray business.

    You're right, this isn't the right sub-forum. Report your first post by clicking the exclamation point at the bottom of the post box. Ask that the thread be moved to the appropriate sub-forum.

    Good luck.

    Samsung huh? Wrong thread as said, but log into your google account from a PC and see if you have any data that was backed up for you. Google's sneaky..... You may find some stuff. Especially if you were using google photos .... Messages? They're gone for sure.

    after 8 factory resets and the device re-installing its software / firmware 8 times over itself and its data sectors - then sorry but no ....

    Time to forget it and




    In future use Google Photo's to back up your photos to your google account. It's free. Just use the experience as a lesson.

    Buddy....I think 1 or 2 resets should be sufficient. But, once you get started, why stop? It sounds like your on a role....go for 21 resets. I am sure whatever the problem is will be fixed at that point.
