You cannot unless you backed it up to a computer.

Do not create multiple threads.

please help restore data, documents, pictures, etc. caused by unaware system wipe.

Did you back up your device to a computer prior to it being wiped?

There is no to recover wiped data unless you did a backup using desktop manager.
Do you have a media card in the BlackBerry? Your pictures *may* be on there.

And how did someone "mistakenly" wipe your BlackBerry. It's not that easy. You have to type the word Blackberry to allow it to wipe.

Yes that's why am surprised, he was just trying to send a scanned file from his PC to my fone, he didn't touch my fone, after connecting the usb then he sent, I didn't touch my fone either, all of a sudden I just saw 'wiping' I didn't even know what it was, he actually thought it was sending but I said it's not suppose to be like this 'cos copy and paste would have been easy, it took more than 30min for it to finish wiping and I couldn't stop it. After that I realised I had lost everything. Is it possible to have a security wipe without initiating the action?

When you connect to a PC the request for a password pops up. He either entered the wrong password multiple times or ketp hitting enter in an attempt to bypass the request.

KB10385-Multiple attempts to type in a password prompts a warning that data will be wiped from the BlackBerry smartphone

It is not a bug in the slightest. It is for data security.
