Noobie with file recovery/reload problem
Just picked up my Xoom today and was really excited to have it.
I started playing around with it and saw it had already 'loaded' in an entire photo album from Picasa. I wanted to remove it so connected to pc & deleted the files but the folder was still showing up on my Xoom. So, stupidly, I went and deleted the overall folder it was in. Now when I try & go to gallery it says external storage not available & I can't see any photos. I think the file was something like com.google.android.3 something. It was in the android folder in another folder (possible a cache folder). I wanted to know if I could recover or re-make that folder again to solve the problem.
But since then I started trying to follow the reset instructions in the booklet and now my screen has frozen at the 'starting fastboot protocol support' stage and I can't turn the Xoom off or do anything with it... Help!!
What an idiot - not even had it for a day.

Thanks for the info on how to reboot though. May need that in the future!
