Stuffed up and deleted a folder called "storage" from my phone today whilst "cleaning" up (storage folder was empty). However, when I deleted that, I lost everything on my phone. Need help recovering please :(. Thanks.

Was the folder on an SD card?
If so, remove the card, put it into a reader on your PC, and recover using one of the many free undelete programs available.

Thanks. Sorry forgot to mention that it wasn't on an external SD card. Phone is a Nexus. Not sure of any apps that will restore straight from phone.

Try using a data recovery app from the play store. There are many there.

Thanks. Yea trying diskdigger and undeleter but wondering if flashing my current ROM back would "display" my data back as the data is still theoretically there right? Just that I deleted the storage folder which is the virtual sd card (right?). Not too technical but am wondering whether I should try flashing the ROM again. Or would I be reducing my chances of a file recovery if I did this and didn't work...hmm.

Im not sure if it works with a phone, because you can't access it as a Mass Storage Device, but the program PhotoRec has done wonderful services for me.
I always keep it in my toolbox of important programs.
