data recovery
Explanation:
I believe that data recovery is the restoration of data which has been lost, whereas data restoration (restoring data) is normally used to refer to what you do when you use a specialised utility to backup the data on a hard disk and then restore it to another disk or the same one once formatted.

So under the circumstances, it looks to me like "recovery" would do the trick for you here.

Data Recovery Definition

Data recovery services can recover data on otherwise lost or damaged hard drives. If you lose your hard drive and standard tools cannot recover data off of it, a data recovery service company can usually recover the data for the right price.
