How to Recover iPad Data after Factory Settings Restore




Can I recover iPad data without iTunes after resetting it?

Last week, I set my iPad to factory default settings. But now I feel regretful to lose my beloved baby's photo album. I'm afraid it's impossible to recover my previous photos without affecting the current data in iPad , but I still hope against hope that someone would know how to fix it. If you know, please tell me. Thanks a million!
