Mising bb playbook icons...pictures, video, voice notes etc

The media icons on my playbook are missing. I had all my media in one folder, my Pictures/YouTube/Voice Recorder/Podcasts/videos/music and now they're all missing. The applications themselves haven't been deleted cause I can still access my pictures and video recording through the file manager but the icons for any of it don't appear on my playbook.

 

I tried restarting, I checked everywhere to make sure they weren't accidently somehow moved to a different folder and I swiped up and down and left and right to make sure they weren't moved to a row that I didn't realize was there and I even tried a few things I found on google like putting icons in the dock row and restarting and checking for software updates and nothing is working.

Re: Mising bb playbook icons...pictures, video, voice notes etc

You're sure you've scrolled down and swiped to the next panels left and right?

Do you have any folders or new folders among the icons?

Yes, I'm absolutly sure and no, I don't have any new anything...I've double checked everything and even swiped all over about a million times.

What was the name of the folder in which those icons were located?

Is that folder still present, and if so, is the folder empty?

I put all those things together in a folder called Media and no, the folder is not there any longer either, it's gone too.

Re: Mising bb playbook icons...pictures, video, voice notes etc

It makes me wonder if you had the icon screen in edit mode at some point (you know, where all the icons are pulsating and have the small trash can icon on each) and you might have accidentally deleted the folder?

Re: Mising bb playbook icons...pictures, video, voice notes etc

I know what you mean yes and no I didn't delete the folder. And even if I had've deleted the folder, as you know, those are icons that it won't let you delete that way normally so if the folder was deleted then the icons would have all just showed back up on the main screen.

Also, like I say, I can still access the pics and stuff through the file manager so therefore they weren't actually deleted completly.

Let's see if any one else has some feedback on this.

 

I know you can backup and reload the OS, but perhaps another user has something less drastic than that, first.
