Operating a system restore won’t make your data erased but there is highly possible that some of your personal files are deleted while system restoring. If you have backups for your system before you operate a system restore, you can retrieve files from backups after system restore. But I have no backup, are my files gone forever? No! They are not! Those deleted files are still there. The space where the deleted files located before was marked as free for new data to occupy. If only the deleted files were not overwritten by new ones, they can still be recovered. Third party data recovery program make it easy to recover files after system restore. You can still get your files back with data recovery tool with a few clicks!

  1. I don't get people thinking their data won't be deleted or erased. Today, there are lots of options on how to save and restore deleted files; online or through a back-up software.

    I think a lot of people don't bother with back-up plans because they thought it is for the techy folks. WRONG. As a matter of fact. backing-up your data is very easy. All you have to do is follow the instructions, and you're all set.
