Default [Q] Can I recovery data after a factory reset?

I asked this on Reddit a while ago and for some reason I didn't think to ask here on XDA...soooo

I have two N5s. A white I bought on day one and a red one I'm typing this on. I finally completed my data transfer to my red one and figured I'd factory reset my white one to tamper with it. Lo and Behold I realize I didn't save my downloads folder.
Can this be recovered? or at least some data.
yeah...

wait factory reset from android or recovery? If it's recovery it shouldn't touch your /data partitions. Meaning all your data should still be there. If it's the reset from android itself or you restored it back to stock then probably not. You can try those data recovery apps but I doubt it'll help.
