"Help. I thought I've copied all my music, recordings and videos to the computer before I deleted them. But it was my illusion and actually, I forgot to back up. It costs me a long time to collect these media files. So, is there any way to recover them from my Samsung Galaxy S5? By the way, I've upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Thank you."
