Software to Recover Data from Windows 8.1

“My system was running with Windows 8 operating system; soon after the introduction of Windows 8.1 OS, I thought of upgrading my current OS to latest 8.1. The up-gradation process was successful and my system is running with Windows 8.1 OS now. As I am new to Windows 8.1 platform, I was finding it difficult to operate certain commands. Today morning I was working on my computer and suddenly a window popped up with a message. Without glancing over it properly, I pressed on “OK”. After choosing this option, my system hanged in the middle and I waited for long time to get a response. Since I was running out of time, I have forcefully shut down my Windows 8.1 PC.
