Re: pictures

The only way is if you had done a previous backup. If you have not previously backed up, and they were wiped, no way to retrieve them.
For the future, I suggest you connect the PlayBook to the computer, close out Desktop Manager when it starts. Go to Windows Explorer. Locate the PlayBook (Drive Z usually ). Then you can drag all your pictures from one platform to another, as well as music and most other files. You have to be careful when using Desktop Manager. After you have used it a few times, it is no problem but initially it can lead you downloaded the garden path if you are not careful.
