Default Recovering photos

Please Login to Remove!

Hi I am new and didn't think the threads already about recovering data were quite as specific to my problems.

I somehow deleted a picture by accident from my photos folder and data recovery software has not been able to recover the photo in it's entirety. the recovered picture is only a small section of the picture and the rest is grey.

However I used this picture or at least a zoomed in close up of the picture as my home screen. The picture is no longer in the photo folder but is still on my home screen.

surely the blackberry has stored the picture somewhere if it is still using it.

The picture is of my daughter standing for the first time so you can understand that I really want to retrieve this picture.

If anyone can be of any help that would be fantastic.

I think you are out of luck. But do a full backup right now and copy it to a backup disk or CD or whatever.

I looked and I don't see a way to export the wallpaper image, or otherwise access it, except as the file that was selected and then set as the wallpaper/homescreen image. Furthermore, from experience I'm pretty sure if you were to do a battery pull, your wallpaper would revert to the default. For that reason it probably won't be saved with the backup, either.

Maybe there is something I'm missing or don't know.
