Cellular Phones/Question ab. lost Searches



I am using a year and a half-old google nexus 7 tablet. I just accidentally hit the setting that says: "Erase ALL Searches on device" - and it did what it said.

I have all kinds of (advanced) file explorers on this thing. Could the list of all the searches (that I lost) possibly be in HEX form, or something, in one of all these folders, hidden deep-down, somewhere?

Thank you very much.
(I'll tip you if I can retrieve them)


Im afraid that once you deleted the searches, they are now gone. Unlike a computer's operating system, where you can retrieve deleted information in many cases, the same is not true with the operating systems on tablets and/or cell phones/SmartPhones. I am very sorry that you inadvertently deleted your searches. Thanks.
