Default Pictures deleted after reboot

So I had a weird problem. After doing a reboot, my phone deleted all my pictures from my camera roll. I ran Disk Digger to recover deleted photos, but all it recovered were pictures the pictures I had sent via MMS. And only the camera roll pictures were deleted--pictures from other albums like screenshots and downloads are still there. But the ones I actually want are apparently gone without a trace.

Any ideas for me?

Sorry to say, but if you have already tried to run a file recovery program and it didn't retrieve them, they are likely gone forever.

I can't shed any light on how or why this happened, but I do know a good bit about file recovery. If somehow the partition index was damaged, the filesystem would "believe" that those files no longer exist, and if the RAW data still exists on the flash memory, it can get "over-written" very quickly. This is my best GUESS on what happened to you...

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.

If you try flashing your exact same firmware again...without erasing userdata with fastboot.... Sometimes it fixes issues and they will magically reappear. Sometimes.

"icare data recovery" does -exactly- the same thing as "Disk Digger" - which the OP has already used. He already advised that it only recovered some MMS pictures...

Likely, the data has already been subsequently overwritten, which make the files permanently irretrievable.

Anyone is welcome to try, but if one has already tried with diskdigger and the files weren't retrieved, I can guarantee that icare can't recover them either.

It's weird that virtually all of his pictures were instantly overwritten. I played with DiskDigger for fun a while ago and found pictures I had deleted months earlier.
