Default Recover files from a brick

I did proper backups, but they were saved to the internal storage. Not a good idea. I'm exchanging my TF700 this weekend and would like to simply run the recovery and restore one of those backups. Possible?

Also lost a sensitive document in that brick...any chance of getting it out or deleting it before Asus gets to it?

From your other thread I gathered you cannot access either the recovery or fastboot -- you couldn't even boot at all. In that case you will not be able to save your files or stop them from getting at them. My guess'd be that they reflash or replace parts anyway and not see any files at all... but you won't either, then, and that's a shame.

Lesson learned is keep backups and sensitive documents in the removable storage.
