I performed a windows system recovery, without backing up my files. This appeared to return the laptop to its original factory set up.

After performing a Stellar Phoenix advance scan, I can see many of my files listed, but when I click on the file - I only a series of letters and numbers appearing in the profile.

This is the same for documents and photos....

Is this correct? or should I see the document content?

"Dear Rich,

File were showing you the hex information because of various factors like File is being damaged, Advance scan scans the drive and found files in partially raw situation, the file size were too big to be shown in preview section.

It would be great if you could take a screen shots of your scan results and mail it to us. You can also use different cloud hosting sites to host image and give us the link.

I'd recommend you to go for recovery for any selected set of files and see if the recovered files are in good condition. If so, you should recover all your files without any fear.

Good Luck!!!"
