Solved How to restore ipod touch 5 without backup

Specs: Macintosh
Plugged in Spencer's ipod and clicked on "restore from this backup" Derrick's ipod. Changed everything on Spencer's ipod to Derrick's ipod stuff (pictures, games, music, etc.). Spencer's ipod did not have things backed up on icloud or itunes.

✔ Best Answer

If the option to restore from Spencer's backup after the accident doesn't present itself I'm afraid Spencer will have to start all over.

With the exception of personal photos and videos all is not lost. Spencer will be able to redownload all his previous iTunes content again after a fresh install using his iTunes account.

If he has lost precious photos and videos taken with iPod the task is a little bleak as he will need to try recovery software. The success rate in doing this isn't good to be perfectly honest, especially if Derricks backup overwrote Spencer's data.

Thanks, that's kind of what we thought. I did try a recovery program and it was unsuccessful. We have it backed up now!! Lesson learned.
