You accidentally deleted some files that are valuable, say a contact, a picture, or other information, in a moment of madness - regardless of the warning of confirmation for deletion. Apparently this is an imminently disastrous situation. Thankfully, deleted data files are recoverable, and there're a couple of ways in an effort to recover data from Note 10/ Note 10+ to get back any important things, one using the previously-created backups, and one using third-party file recovery tool.

Accessing Samsung Cloud Backup

If you already completed a backup of all files with it, you could go back in time to restore lost data from Samsung Galaxy Note10 device. Learn how to use Samsung Cloud backup to retrieve contacts, text messages, calendar, call logs, music, voice recordings, clock settings, documents, apps, home screen layouts and settings. This is also useful if you would rather recover data from a lost Samsung device.

All-in-One Data Recovery Solution

While Samsung Cloud does a great job of saving and retrieving deleted data from the Galaxy Note10 (Plus), it makes no sense in the event you have no backed-up data on the server—maybe you never made the archive, or perhaps the files are missing right before the time when the backup copy was created. Nevertheless, you can still recover lost data files as long as the items haven't been overwritten by any new data on the phone memory, and Android Data Recovery is a surprisingly robust option for that purpose.
