@Pistol I  know this advice won't help you right now but hopefully it can be useful next time around ...

 

There is a 'backup' option in Whatsapp that saves your messages to Google Drive. But unfortunately it needs to be activated before you lose your messages Smiley Sad

 

You can activate it under Settings >> Chats >> Chat backup >> and then specify exactly what you would like to backup and how often ...

 

I think to backup SMS you probably need to install a 3rd party app - Look for an SMS backup app in the Google Play store.

@Pistol In addition to my previous post - I just came across this article

https://www.recovery-android.com/recover-data-from-android.html

 

It shows you how you can scan your phone for lost files from your computer - Perhaps you can have some luck with that?
