    24 hours ago my V20 did a factory reset as it wouldn't accept my fingerprints and I had no idea what the pattern lock was.

    The last ten days of VZW messages were not uploaded to the VZW cloud and all of my photos and videos 100GB worth were deleted from the micro SD card in phone.

    Is there anyway I can retrieve this information by either rooting the phone and using a software to "undelete" everything or am I just F'ed hard here

    I have the majority of my pics but none of the videos of flying around Mt Denali in Alaska last Thursday nor the videos I took while in Homer. Seriously pissed here. All pics went to Google Photos but not the majority of videos

    Did you rely solely on Verizon Cloud for photo backup?

    Photo backup was Google Photos. I have a 1 TB package. VZW cloud is strictly for my 55k+ text messages

    Your videos should be backed up to Photos too, even on the free plan.

    Was it a case of videos being set to back up only on WiFi and you weren't on WiFi?

    I'd try using a data recovery tool on the micro SD card. Would be best if you haven't written anything new to it since the reset.

    I'm on a unlimited plan with VZW so I always upload on their network. I was in Alaska flying around Denali. One video uploaded but the others didn't from the rest if the trip.

    Appreciate the advice. Any thoughts on which data recovery tool is best for the micro SD attempt

    A factory reset does not normally wipe out an SD card.

    Did you have the SD Card encrypted? If so, I can see how the factory reset would have cleared it.
