    Sorry if this has been posted. I tried searching and didn't see this topic.

    Is there a way to get my photos back? (I don't think so. But I am human, ergo hope springs eternal).

    I am *usually* very smart about my backups. However last night I got all excited to jump into the 8.1 preview update and was working on it both late at night and also early in the morning. This caused a major brain malfunction and I totally spaced about saving my photos/videos from my 920 to my computer.

    Here is a summary of the status of my phone:
    - updated it to latest developer preview 8.1
    - performed a hard reset (wiping all settings and data etch) (because I read this is recommended to solve many bugs)
    - remembered that I had a bunch of photos and videos that it sure would be nice to get back

    Are photos backed up automatically? (I think the answer is no. I think you have to tell your phone to back them up to OneDrive. I had not taken this step).
    Is there a way to kickoff a restore that would get the photos back (or have I killed my ability to restore when I did the hard reset)?

    Log into your one drive and check and see if your photos where backed up. If you did not back tgem up to either one drive or PC then most likely gone

    Yes you can, go to YouTube there you will find alot of videos to know how.
    Here in Saudi Arabia it's so important, because when they sell the phone asked has some personal photos they want to make sure that no one can teach them
