“Hi, I am using my laptop from last two years. But from last month, there was a sudden reduce in its performance as well as the system was very slow. Due to this problem, I decided to restore my laptop to factory setting. But once I restore to factory setting, then I think that I have not taken the backup of my files which leads to huge data loss. Can anyone suggest me how to retrieve files from factory reset laptop?”
