Hi,
Yes you can recover the data from the drive but you have to use special software to recover the data.
What you will need is a large capacity external hard drive to recover the data to as data recovery cannot save to a drive that its recovering from.
Download Easy Recovery Professional from Cnet here >>>>>>>>>

Install the software on the machine you deleted all the data from and plug in your external drive, run the program and select either a format or deleted recovery and follow the on screen instructions to recover the data you want.
Be patient however as the recovery process take take hours to complete.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

No im sorry there is not. Or should i say there is no cheap way to do so. If the new install of windows has overwritten any data you once had, then thats gone for good. You could be speaking about a £1,000 to get back what you might have left. May i reccommend getting an external hard drive to backup all those importand documents & pictures that you treasure.

Hi,
Pressing the NOVO button removes all the data from C: drive and reinstall the OS image from the hidden partition.
To recover the data you will have to take the help of some third party recovery softwares as you can check on www.recovermyfiles.com

Hi i have ideapad y510 and its novo button is not working how do i reformat my pc without that button help my out thanks


Hi There!

Welcome to FixYa,

First off, if you're trying to restore this computer back to factory defaults, then the system should be turned off before pressing the OKR (One Key Recovery) button. If it fails to work (or nothing happens), then the partition where it originally resides has been corrupted over time.

The only way for you to get this resolved is to obtain a "Recovery CD" specifically for Y510. You can do it by contacting their helpdesk support and ask for the disc to be delivered to you. I have to set your expectations that their usual charge is (usually) close to $50.

I hope this helps and Thank you for using Fixya.

HI, my lenovo Y510, its almost dead. I turn on and only put the lenovo screen and they shut dowm alone. I try with the novo botton and is the same problem. I can do something?? Please help me


Hi sanmej01,

Based on your situation, since you already tried the novo/OKR button but you're still experiencing problem, I suspected that this is a hardware failure. I recommend to contact the technical support of Lenovo. They will set up a depot repair for you to diagnose the computer and to repair it completely. You may contact them at this number 1-877-4Lenovo (1-877-453-6686).

--> Hours of operation, 24 hours a day 7 days a week

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using Fixya

Windows failed to boot. I have tried booting it from the disc. Any ideas?


Try launching the One Key Recovery program.
1. Back up all files that
you wish to keep from the C: drive
2. Turn off the computer (no
flashing lights).
3. Press the Lenovo Care Button (small button with
upside down arrow or word NOVO written on it).
4. Select System
Recovery (very much different from the above mentioned System Restore).
5. Select to restore to factory default settings / initial settings.
