    I did a factory reset as my Samsung DVD recorder wasn't working too well. Model is BD-E8500A. Because I did a factory reset, I was shocked to find that all of my files on the DVD HDD were deleted. Is there any way I can get them back myself?

    First of all, IF the data is important, you make multiple backups on different media. ALL drives fail; it is only a question of when the drive will fail.
    To answer the question, probably however it depends on how much money you want to spend. A very simple data recovery using just software generally runs $200 or so plus the cost of whatever media you want the data recovery to; ie you cannot recover data to the same drive you are scanning so you need to purchase another external, NAS, whatever. If you cannot recover using just software, the price goes way up from there; always get an estimate since this can run into the thousands of $

    Here is a link to a free program that recovers data;

    Do understand that the more you use the drive in question, the less chance of recovering anything. If this is a system drive with the operating system on it, then the chances go down again.

    +1 on using Recuva. It is free and easy to use.
