    I had to put my iPad in recovery mode to fix a freeze it would go into, but, i was not aware that after putting it to recovery mode i would loose all my photos etc. that i had on the ipad.Now is there a way to recover those files and save them from loss?

    You can backup to the local system by using iTunes.

    There is nothing you can do with the files you've lost. No backup = gone.

    It amazes me that there are still people out there that don't backup or even some I've seen say they refuse to backup.

    Threads like this is a prime example why EVERYONE should be doing iCloud or iTunes backups. Doing both is the safest option.

    You are absolutely right lagwagon, but sometimes we all learn the hard way.
    Regarding the retrieval of the files, are you certain that there is no way???

    QFT. The encryption makes it impossible to recover once you reset the device.

    Those hard drives aren't encrypted. iOS encrypts all your data -- there's no way to NOT encrypt it.

    I always backup to my hard drive via itunes once a week. Super easy, just about a 2 click operation or something. I dont use the cloud from Apple personally.

    As for your missing files? They're treated slightly different on a device than a pc.
