I have a Yamaha Clavinova 409. For some reason it has reset

Customer Question

I have a Yamaha Clavinova 409. For some reason it has reset itself and I have lost many songs I wrote. Is there a way of getting those songs back?

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately the only way to recover the missing songs is from a backup, if you had one available.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks Pete. No back up. That's the problem. Loads of songs gone over 4 years. It just reset for no reason. I assume the data is still there somewhere.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

If the machine has been reset then the data will have been erased.

The only possibility is forensic recovery, which is very expensive (£5000 or more)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Almost worth it to be honest.Thanks Peter
