I accidentally did a factory reset, thinking it was a restore point. Is there a way to undo this? Ive lost all pictures and music. Any help would be appreciated

The "way to undo this" is to restore your last backup. (I run Macrium Reflect Free (home version) every weekend. Takes about an hour but, you can use the computer while it's doing its thing).

If you don't have a backup, you're probably out of luck. You could try something like Recuva but, it will only be able to recover what hasn't been overwritten.

Look and see if there is a Windows,old folder.
It will contain all of your data and OS files.

Open Windows Explorer and it will be listed at the root of the C drive.
You can then click it and it will show you ALL of the folders.
Browse to the wanted files and folder and select them and drag to the wanted location in the new OS.



DO NOT try and copy back any of the system files or folders.
