Lost some important files after factory reset?
Most of the computers & other devices like camera or mobile phones, come preconfigured with some settings, which is important for the working of a device. There are occasions when you might accidentally or intentionally reset your digital camera to its original factory settings. You might intentionally reset your camera either to get rid of the virus infection or while selling off your camera, so that no one can access your personal pictures. But the problem starts when you find that you did not take a backup or the backup is not updated with the recent files or the device holding the backup got corrupted & you are not able to access any of the files.
Consider a real life scenario to understand the scenario. You reset your Samsung digital camera to its original factory settings after taking a proper backup of all the pictures & videos on an external storage device. You then sold your camera to a friend. When you tried to open the backup files, you found that all the files are just shortcuts of the original files. No, matter how hard you tried, you were not able to locate the original files. This situation can be very painful as you might have many pictures & videos of your memorable moments.
Now you might be thinking that “How to get data back after factory reset?”. Don’t worry as the files lost after factory reset are still recoverable. The file that you think are permanently removed after resetting your Samsung camera to original factory settings, are actually not removed. The data is still present on your memory card, only the access to the files is lost. That is why the files are not visible.
