    heyya christadwani, I've removed your email from the thread, as that is an excellent way to get on spam lists.

    thanks,

    and while I'm not the best apple person out there, I am pretty sure that once you go forward, you cannot go back. Did you back up your data? I had a similar issue with my son's ipad a few months ago, but transferred the data off prior to upgrading, worked fine.

    Going back won't restore anything that is gone. You most likely have lost it forever. Going back will actually further cover up anything that might remain (which may be next to nothing, anyway).

    And, we won't help with, nor condone, anything "illegal" on this site.

    The best you can do is scan with a file recovery program to see if anything remains that was not overwritten. And it also depends on how he prepared the disk prior to the change. It could have been fully wiped of files.
