Default [Q] Question about M7 nandroid backups on M8

Before I got the M8 I made a nandroid backup because my M7 had just died. All of my pictures are in the backup. Is it safe to backup then restore the data partition from my M7? Or are my pictures just lost?

Those pictures were stored on the internal storage of the M7, and an nandroid doesn't back up the internal storage. I'm sorry, but they are lost unless you've saved them elsewhere.

I was under the impression that it backed up literally everything. Well, thank you for answering

Just system, data, and boot, the internal sd isn't included in any of those, data is just the apps and it's data. Sorry.

For the record, no it's NOT safe to restore an M7 Nandroid on the M8 so don't try it
OnePlus One (Sandstone Black) 64GB
ROM: CyanogenMod 11S (XNPH25R)

HTC One M8 (Gunmetal Grey) 16GB
ROM: 2.22.401.4 (KTU84L) | HBOOT: 3.18.0.0000 S-OFF | Recovery: Stock | Baseband: 1.19.2133147.09G_20.57.4196.01L_F | Kernel: Stock | CID: HTC__001

If you have a question, great - but DO NOT PM ME WITH IT!!! | [GUIDE] Return your EU M8 to 100% Stock (S-OFF Required) | [GUIDE] Return your OPO to 100% Stock

How did you manage to make a nandroid backup if your phone died?
