But when he returned it to me, he told me he had carelessly deleted one Photo Stream which is quite important for me. I have tried many ways yet finally turned out to be futile. If you know how to solve this problem, please contact me!

Well, it's not difficult to recover data from iPod touch 5/4 unless you choose good data-recovery software. For instance, iPhone Data Recovery (Mac) or iPhone Data Recovery (Windows), I recommend.

This software can help you recover your file by scanning your iPod touch 4/5 or extracting the lost photos out of your iTunes backup file depending on whether you have synced your iPod touch with iTunes before. iTunes can generate a backup for the data of your device, and update the backup next time when you sync your device again. But if you don't have iTunes backup file, do not worry, just using the software to scan your device directly. Further, this software is available for other devices like iPhone, iPad or iPod to recover various kinds of files. Now the article will detail every step of the tutorial on how to use iPhone Data Recovery.
