Default Files before factory default process?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I entered wrong password accidentally and my 9900 bold device installed the factory defaults. I had importand pictures that I strongly need. Is there a way to get them back?
Note: The factory default process was 1-2 hours ago.

Thank you...

If they were on the SD memory card, they should be there.
If they were in device memory, they are gone.

You have to enter the wrong password 10 times. How did that occur?

Too bad for me...

I had a security password enabled with 5 time attempt selected.
When I was entering that password, somehow it was not asterisked and it did not accept my password entered. Then wanted me to enter "blackberry", then password again. I used up all my attempts so...

Anyway, I will no more keep my files in the phone and will not keep important information in Password Keeper.

Perhaps you should think of performing device/ card backups, instead of not using the Password Keeper and not storing important files on the device. That would be a much safer and smarter practice.

Back up your data?
What a silly idea.
