I accidentally factory reset my laptop and lost all my files. But the only file i need is the music file. B.c on itunes all my music says untitled for some reason. Is there a way to get my files back from factory reset @e.mccormick

You need a fire recovery tool that will look for the unlined files on the drive.

Will test disk bring back my files from before factory reset b.c i didnt back up
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yes. You just need a large enough drive to backup to that is not the same drive.. or that is generally how these things work.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
What you mean by that. Like a flash drive. I used recova and it didnt bring the files before factory reset
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Usually it needs to have the ability to do a deep scan to find the files themselves, not just old file tables, and yes, like a flash drive to recover to.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So if i download test disk. Just do deep scan and plug in a flash drive?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Basically. What I use is this: http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm I have had a licence for it for years. So I can't say exactly how other software works.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Oh Can this bring back my file before factory reset. I went to factory restore but the first point it had was 7/30 and i did this 7/29
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Factry restore and restore points are generally different things. Restore points look for program changes but should leave data alone. Fatory resore wipes out the OS and restores the factory software.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Oh ok. So the link u gave me. That might bring back the files?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
It is commercial software. As in, you would ahve to buy it. But it does a good job. However, there are lots of free options out there these days that might also work.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Oh seems like it only has the files after the factory reset D:
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yah, factory reset is a way to get rid of things and bring the machine back to "like new" condition.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So there is no way to get them back..?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
There is. I went through a ist of 20 or so programs and found 5 free ones that do format recovery: http://www.pcinspector.de/default.htm?language=1 http://www.boot-disk.com/ http://www.file-recovery.com/ http://www.ntfs.com/recovery-toolkit.htm http://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/free-data-recovery-software.htm Any of those should work. Look at what they say about them and picj the one you think will be easist for you to use.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
But you said it starts like new. So there put somewhere else incase you need them or there gone forever
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
The partition table and File Allocation Table and similar things are gone. However, the 1 and 0 marks on the disk are still there until a full wipe is done. Most factory resores are still there. Lets say you have a house. The house is no longer needed. You remover the location of the hoise from the map. The house is still there, you just do not know how to get to it. Now, if someone else bulds there, they tear down the old house and build the new house. Until that happens, the old how is fine. THat is how file systems work. The data is there but nothing points to it. So you need a program that can scan the drive and find the start and stop points of the files.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
I mean that in most factory restores, they do not wipe so the data is actually still there. They just kill the file tables. not the files themselves.

i am using the PC inspector and will do deep scan and hope this works.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yah, where it says "Recovers files, even when a header entry is no longer available. Competition products cannot recover such files. The "Special Recovery Function" supports the following disk formats:" is the type of thing that is needed.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
However, they are wrong about the competition. Several companies do this. Hehe.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So the PC inspector can do the job? I leave in 8 mins and i want to leave my laptop on and charging with deep scan so when i come back, ill see it done
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Well, you will see what it finds. To be honest, it is usually best to run on another machine and scan the drive... but it does not sould like you have that option.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
what u mean.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Every temproary file made by the internet has a chance of wiping out a critical file area... so it is best to pull a drive and use another machine to scan it.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Pull a drive??? And i dont understand PC inspector so i am going to use the one u use and see what happens
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Most of these are made for technicians, not users, so they tend to be a little more obtuse. And yes, hard drives come out of computers. They are a part. But that means having more than one computer and a laptop drive adapter or to use a boot CD/DVD.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So can u help me step by step in 10mins? Ok i opened your "Get back data" So i click disk and the first one. So i insert a cd?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
I can't really describe these things easily. I can point out a few programs, but you need to read and follow the instructions no matter which one you use.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
This is what i am doing right now https://gyazo.com/362ff37b249e587d1e2a4c50a981e372
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So i just leave it to finish and hope the file is there
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
The files didnt come back -_-@e.mccormick please help
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
If tools that do a deep scan are not able to detect the file, then the file may have been overwritten.
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
D: this sucks
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Well i am just going thru all them and going to name them
