Hello,

My phone was stolen a few days ago and reset. Luckily i found it, but i had backups of EasyMoney on it.
I just learned that LG decided to call the hard reset, a complete wipe. Although it is my fault i did not back up, i`m sure i might be able to recover one or more of the BAK files on the internal storage.

Any suggestions on how i could look for the BAK files?
You should be able to set a password for hard reset, so that it is not that easy for someone to ruin your day!

Thanks

p.s: I`m tech savvy. Although i did search for some recovery options, i did not have time to try them all.

Sorry to hear. G2 has like 5 partitions - System, Data, Dalvik, Cache, Internal Storage. If they wiped the Internal Storage (Hard Reset?) there is no way of you getting your old files back. I don't know the reason why they are gonna do that. If you did have a custom recovery (TWRP,CWM) before the Hard Reset, you have at least the option to select which partition/s you want to wipe out. If your internal storage wasn't wiped out just try to search for apk files using a file explorer like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gs.android.pop.
