    Greetings @Derek78 and welcome to the Community!

    That was a Factory Reset from the Settings Menu, yes?

    So usually terminal, if that happens, at least for the hard disc, and maybe for the whole box.

    But is the box still OK on live TV? Catchup? Pause & Rewind Live TV?
    (Maybe OK on the first and second, but not the third).

    What box make and model is it, and have you got it on subscription from BT? If so, just ask then for a replacement.

    Otherwise, if the box seems OK on live TV and the catchup apps, and it’s not a Humax DTR-T10x0, or a Huawei DN370T, you might be able to resuscitate it by swapping the hard drive. No configuration needed, just drop it in, and the box will do the rest.

    If you are up for that, please let us know.
