Recordings recovery

I accidentally did a factory reset of my Tablo 4th gen. Is there any way I can salvage my recordings that were on an external hard drive?

You’ll need a Linux machine or anything that can read NTFS formatted drives. Then you’ll see that each folder within the recordings has more numbered folders that correspond to a recording that has all the parts in the seg folder. In there, you’ll see a few hundred TS files. Which you can then merge into one large file.

So… Yes, it’s technically possible. Is it worth the time and energy? I think the most time consuming thing would be trying to figure out what each recording is – and if you’ve got multiple episodes of a show, it’d be near impossible to find the order, let alone the show titles!
