Windows 10 - A clean re-installation after repair

By technew55 ·
I was wondering if its possible to retrieve data after a clean installation has taken place. My computer was sent to Dell for repair and they did a clean installation of windows 10 and I did not agree to it. I was wondering how can I go about doing this?

I've found many different software like minitool and easeus but not sure if they're any good? Are they a good recommendation?

If you could please list all the steps I'd be greatful.

Reinstalling overwrites your data randomly. The mentioned data recovery programs can normally recover non-overwritten data and scanning drive with them will not affect your lost data. So, it's safe to try them, and the reputations of both programs are not bad.
Another suggestion, don't write new to the drive before recovering all needed data. Good luck!
