Hello. My name is***** will be your Primary Care Technician and I can assist you with your question.
Unfortunately, when you reset a DirecTV receiver the hard drive is formatted and everything is wiped out. The data on the devices is no longer recoverable. In fact, it has already overwritten it by the time the reset is done. I wish I had better news to share with you but it is my goal to give you accurate information. I would appreciate a moment of your time to rate my level of service using the okay, good, or excellent rating icons. Please a me know if his tough questions.
