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 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?

cheers

"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!!!"

Hello,

I don't know if I can post this question here but I would love if someone can help me out of this unrelated subject.

Well, I have an HDD drive that I have been using with my Macbook (OS journaled), after that I removed that drive and plug it in a windows, then formatted it (NTFS) and installed windows 10 on it. After a period of use I wanted to recover some files such images and docs using a data recovery software from that drive. Do I can recover files that were copied when I was using the drive on macbook under windows or I need to to put it on mac again to recover that data?

Any help will be appreciated, thank you

Please help me.
I am using window 7, my fan first developed a problem and later affected the hard disk. I have tried several times to boot the laptop but it continues to stand still whenever it gets 'starting windows'.

However, I removed the hard disk, cased it and tried assessing the files using another laptop, yet it refused to open. The last option is to format it by installing new windows (8 or 10). Can be able to recover my files after the installation of the new Windows.

Finally, isn't it a form of overwriting the disk when new softwares (including the recovery software) are installed on it before the recovery process?

Thank you very much for the anticipated help.
