Question [Q] Backup form Clockwork Recovery Deleted all phone contents?


I have an LG Optimus F7 and I recently rooted the device. After I installed ROM manager from Clockworrk, I pressed "Backup current ROM". I thought this would be to backup an image of my system that I could use for recovery if I were to run into trouble. It simply asked me for a name of the backup, and I entered the current date.

As soon as I hit "Ok", the phone automatically rebooted. When the phone turned on, I realized a whole system wipe had been performed. Is this supposed to happen?

Oddly enough, SU is still installed on my phone, but everything else is gone. All the apps, contacts, music. Everything.

Can I fix this somehow?

Hi there!

There is no section for your device on XDA, so the best place to ask your question would be here.... >*Android Development and Hacking*>*Android Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting

Hopefully someone can help!
