    I want to delete videos taken with my phone and saved to the videos… there doesn’t seem to be an option to delete and they are not in my gallery to delete either.

      Tiffany. I had the same issue. 7 steps VERY Easy. Here is the quick solution:
      1-Tap> Applications (lower right side of the main Home screen. Picture of box with 4 smaller boxes inside.)
      2-Tap> My Files (picture of a yellow file folder)
      Scroll Down> to Download (list of yellow folders)
      3-Tap> Download (downloaded files such as photos and videos will appear)
      4-Tap> Menu button (lower left hand side, very bottom, of the phone. Its 1 of the 4 items that are always available. Looks like a small box with 2 lines inside)
      5-Tap> Delete (little garbage can image, and all downloaded items will now show a check box next to each item)

      Root your Galaxy SGH-i577 Exhilarate, then install DiskDigger undelete/ recover files / photos Android Application. If the deleted texts (document) were deleted from SD card or internal memory, you have high chance on getting it back.

      Link for the app: Disk Digger on Play Store

      You can also use another application that has the same function on getting back your data file from Android or SD card. There are quite plenty of them. Hexamob Recovery for example.
