“I have lost many audio files from my iPod due to factory reset. Actually what happened is, it was taking too long to play a single song so one of my friends has suggested me to restore it. I did not know that restoring will erase all songs from it. Does anyone know how I can retrieve audio files from iPod? There were many audio files which are very difficult to find in internet. Help would be appreciated greatly!!!”
Are you among the one who have faced similar situation and lost your important audio files. If yes then no need to worry!!! Restoring does not erase your files permanently. iPod holds the audio files unless and until you add any new song in it. Therefore do not add any new file to your iPod as this would leads to occupy deleted files space and makes you lose it forever.
