Smart TV Data Loss
Internet-connected TVs are now very much part of some homes, replacing traditional PCs when accessing apps like Facebook or YouTube.

With the advent of streaming and the availability of fast broadband connection, TVs are no longer dependent on standard channels and schedules with users having the ability to choose the content they want on demand.
However, one drawback of these smart TVs is that data is not only received; it is also sent back to the manufacturers and the broadcast stations. So, if you want to record content from your TV, you will require an external storage medium like a USB hard drive or a digital disk drive recorder. In some cases, the USB hard drive is formatted into a vendor format, which makes it impossible for users to view their content from other devices, such as their laptop. The same applies to hard disk recorders in which the film files have to be converted into common formats so they can be watched on your mobile or home computer.
If you’re finding it challenging to download your content, one of your options is to contact a professional data recovery service provider like Kroll Ontrack. It may be possible to recover your information using specialist tools and equipment, regardless if your file system is toxic.
