No Man's Sky: How to get data recovered

 We teach you how to get recovered data in No Man's Sky very easily so that you can redeem it in exchange for new technologies, structures, and much more.

The recovered data is a very important No Man's Sky technological item since thanks to it we can unlock new technology formulas in the Space Anomaly, structures for our base, and much more. In this entry below we are going to show you the simple and quick method to get data recovered in your game.

How to get data recovered

Getting recovered data in No Man's Sky is quite easy and you can start obtaining it very early in the adventure. In order to find them we will only need a few small requirements and follow these steps:

How to get data recovered

  • Get an analysis viewer: and install it on your multi-tool, it will provide you with information about your surroundings and points of interest on the planets.
  • Have a terrain manipulator: installed on your multi-tool, since with it you will be able to extract and dig in the earth.
  • Search for buried technology modules: with the analysis viewer. These modules are on all planets and have a blue symbol (like the one in the image we attach above these lines). They are normally found buried at a depth of about 100u.
  • Dig and extract the data: when you have reached one of these modules you will be able to collect the recovered data (each module gives a random amount of between 1 to 4 data).

And that's it. It couldn't be simpler, right? To accumulate a lot of recovered data all you have to do is repeat these steps described over and over again. Don't worry because you will always find a lot of buried technology modules.

Buy recovered data

There is one more method with which you can obtain recovered data, although it is not the most common, it must also be taken into account. Recovered data can be purchased at some trading posts and minor settlements on the planets. They are not everywhere, but sometimes by pure chance, they are also found like this.
