Recover deleted events from Samsung S5 calendar app?

I hit 'sync now' in the Samsung S5 calendar app thinking it would upload all of my events to the Google calendar and it promptly deleted months worth of events I had entered into my phone. Is there any way I can recover those deleted events?. I have tried: Looking online, pressing sync now again, restarting the phone, adding and subtracting different calendars on my list, looking through the settings and help. I think it was caused by: I think it erased all the locally entered data because Samsung calendar app has a problem communicating with Google calendar - it can read but can't upload for some reason. Unfortunately, I didn't know that before hitting 'sync now' and hadn't created a Samsung account yet.

Unfortunately information that is deleted from a Samsung calendar cannot be retrieve unless you have backed up your calendar events on the SD card or on your laptop or desktop on a program like Kies. You might also want to make sure that your Samsung calendar is set to "Show Events"; make sure that there are no filters hiding events on the Google calendar that you are syncing from as well.

Samsung Galaxy S5 was running very slowly and sometimes freezing up. Completed a factory reset but can't figure out how to restore calendar entries (past, present and future) or previously installed apps?

I need a succinct but complete explanation of how to save data/info/music, etc. from my S5 Active, and then update, which hasn't been done in about a year?

S5 Active hasn't updated to marshmallow or anything subsequent, works poorly.
