Hi,

My device Samsung S9 SM-G960F was running low on space but my bad that I didn't clear enough space and now my phone is stuck in recovery mode.

Android Recovery

Reboot system now
Reboot to bootloader

I have tried wiping cache partition but it didn't help. My phone is not rooted and I have very less experience about recovery mode. I don't have complete backup of the data on my phone so I really want to avoid factory reset. Can someone please help me to get this issue resolved?

Many Many Thanks In Advance!

A factory reset will not remove data, such as pictures, videos, music or downloads. It will remove your settings and any apps you have installed and any data associated with those apps. I don't see what other choice you have. It is too late to backup now.

I thought factory reset means deleting everything??

Is there a way I can get into my phone and delete some files so the phone can start normally?

No, a factory reset doesn't delete your personal data. You can try plugging your USB cable into a PC, but I doubt that it will connect from recovery menu.
