TAZLUV_4,

We definitely want you to have all your saved content, especially your messages. Have you noticed any pattern in messages that were not backed up? Do they come from specific contacts? Are they recent messages, old messages or a mixture?

They seem to be a mix of older messages and newer ones. Some of them had pictures in them and some of them didnt. They were mainly from specific contacts that i can see at this point. I havent backed any recent messages up at this point until i can figure out what happened. I dont understand why it happened. The weird thing was the day it happened my phone restarted on its own and then when it came back up everything in my inbox was gone so I went to restore messages from my cloud and thats when i noticed there was content missing, that i never deleted.

TAZLUV_4, I am sorry to learn that you are having trouble with the information deleted. Have you checked the trash can online? When you log into the Cloud, hover over settings, and click trash.

No I haven't checked that. I will though but why would they go there if they weren't deleted to begin with??? I will see if they are there can they be restored?

TAZLUV_4, we appreciate all of your efforts and certainly want to get to the bottom of what occurred to the information from the device and I'm happy to continue helping.

Just for clarification, what is the make/model of your phone? Are you restoring contacts from a previous device to a new phone?

My phone is the galaxy s7 edge. No i am not restoring from a  previous phone.  My phone acted up one day and restarted. the cloud backed up the night before. however when i went to restore my messages from my cloud a ton of my messages were missing. important ones that contained pictures of my newborn niece and nephew, along with some other messages that were previously backed up to the cloud.  I checked the trash and there is nothing there and i have not had my messages back up since this has happened. Im really lost on what to do.

Does anyone have any other suggestions on what to do? I have not backed up any messages or anything other than contacts since this has happened because I am afraid of losing more important information like i have already lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
