Do you not have backups in case the tablet is lost or stolen?

It was my sons tablet and he factory reset it, he did not have the gmail backup option set up.  He has many family pictures he has taken and hoped I could get them back.

Unfortunately, no.  The pictures and everything else is gone.  When you do a factory reset it takes the device to how it was when it came fresh out of the box.

No backups, no pictures.

It's a hard lesson, but one I'm sure he won't make again.

There probably isn't much you can do short of sending it to a recovery agency. Or if the fotos were saved on a separate memory card (not the internal card), they should still be there.

In case you try a recovery service, contact several, and ask for their policy and fee; many have a “No recovery - no fee”policy

Here are a few links links:

I doubt anything can be recovered but here is the info just in case you want to give it a shot.

Be warned, these companies are quite expensive.

Also, they'd probably have to take the device apart so they can get to the memory. I don't know whether recovery includes reassembly after that, or whether the device itself will still operate.

I wouldn't even try.  Your son learned a very valuable lesson on making backups.  This is something that will be useful when he is working on papers and such for school.

I would stress this to him as well.

He is 11 years old and not a teenager.  Lesson or not can this be done?  I think you all are missing what this forum is about. "Technical help" not about parenting help.   I'm reading on other forums I just need to have it run as a thumb drive with memory access.

Your short answer...no this cannot be done by you.  If you connect it to another computer and run it as a thumb drive, you won't see any pictures becaue of the factory reset.

Your only chance is to send it to or contact a professional restore company and see of they can do anything for you.
