Default [Q] S3 nandroid doesn't restore everything

Ok, so I made a nandroid backup before trying out a new rom.
Had some problems (bootloop etc.) so decided to restore everything.
Now here's my problem: The backup I made is fully fuctioning.
However, everything that was on my internal storage is gone... Pictures, music, videos; everything.
The internal storage was pretty much filled with those.
Now, there's only 2gb used, and it's just for apps.

Any help?

At some point you preformed a factory reset, which wipes the internal storage. Nandroid can backup everything, but only if you tell it to -default only includes system and data partitions.
Note: This quote doesn't automatically apply to everyone, decide for yourself if it might apply to you.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Aaaahh, I thought it'd be something like that.
Thanks for answering
