Windows 8 File Recovery after OS Reset

Hello. I had an issue restarting my Windows 8 PC and ended up resetting to the original factory condition without backing up anything. I thought it was restoring to an earlier checkpoint, but it was a full reset. All of my pictures, documents, favorites are gone. My computer is working perfectly fine, with the exception of my lost files. Is there any way to recover all of my files? If possible, can I do it myself or do I need to take it to any system admin? Thank you!

This is like doing a factory restore / recovery on a purchased computer; however resetting is done little faster. Resetting your Windows 8 PC works like this:

  • Your Windows 8 PC boots into the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE)
  • This Windows RE erases and formats only the hard drive partition on which Windows 8 and your personal data (user folders) reside

  • After which your PC restarts into the newly installed copy of Windows 8

When you reset your PC, the drive will be completely reset and all your apps and files will be removed from it.
