How to recover data after factory reset


Two options before you perform a factory reset

What is a factory reset?

You go for a factory reset to restore your device’s software to its original manufacturer settings. In the process, all the information stored on the device will be lost. The reset will then reinstall Windows and all applications that were originally installed by your PC manufacturer. Most people opt for factory reset if their system is slow or has been infected by a virus. If you are planning to sell your device, you do a factory reset to not leave any trace of data behind. A factory reset ensures that your system is clean and performs at an optimum level.

Whatever be the reason, you affected a factory reset of your system. You had some important data stored on your system but forgot to take a backup before performing a factory reset. All is not lost yet. With Remo Recover software, you can still restore all your lost data even after doing a factory reset.

Do not overwrite!

The files have not disappeared forever. Despite doing a factory reset, files are still present on your hard drives. The address pointers of the files are removed. Do not add any new files to your drives after factory reset. It overwrites data present on the drive and the recovery process is difficult.

With an easy user interface, Remo Recover software helps you recover files after factory restore.

All kinds of files including images, documents, videos can be recovered using Remo Recover software.
