Get Back Files from Samsung Series 3 Laptop?

Your friend suggested you to do uninstall Windows and reinstall it again. But the problem is reinstalling OS erases everything from your laptop. So you want to know on how to retrieve lost data from your Samsung Series 3 laptop.

Yes!! Reinstalling Windows OS will give rise to loss of complete or partial data from hard drive. However, there are some ways to get your data back. Follow the methods explained below to rescue your valuable files and folders from Samsung Series 3 laptop after re-installing Windows OS./p>

Method 1: Restoring data using inbuilt Samsung Recovery Solution 4 software

Samsung Recovery Solution 4 is application software, which helps Samsung Series laptop users to backup and restore information on their Windows computer. With this application, users can backup and restore personal data files (or) perform a complete backup of the entire PC, including the OS, programs, settings, system software’s etc and can even restore PC to an earlier version from an updated backup.

To open this built in software, click Start > All Programs >Samsung > Samsung Recovery Solution 4. Use “Restore” option to get back all lost files from your Samsung Series 3 laptop.

Performing Data Restore

“Data Restore” option reloads the files which you had previously backed up using Data Backup. To perform a Data Restore, follow these steps:

  • Click on F4 Key when your Samsung Series laptop first powers on
  • Tap “Agree to accept the Licensing Agreement” after which Samsung Recovery Solution 4 loads
  • Once Samsung Recovery Solution 4 loads, click “Restore” -> “Data Restore”
  • The Next screen, displays a list of backup that you created using “Data Backup”. Choose the backup you would like to use for this restore and click “Next”
  • Samsung Recovery Solution 4 displays two options in a window. I.e. “Original Path: Restore data to its original path.” and “New Path: Restores the data to a new location.” Choose any of the option and click “Next”
  • The application prompts you to confirm the restore. Click “Yes” to continue
  • You can monitor your restore process by looking at the progress bar

The only disadvantage with this application is that, you will be able to restore data only if you have a previous backup of the lost data. Hence if you didn’t backup your files before, this application may not help you. In such case, you have to follow the second method.
