Note: you can collect the data pad and reload checkpoint/respawn, and you will still receive the credit for this achievement.

Ok, seems they don’t spawn if you don’t start from the beginning :(

mr tys0nI think you're wrong metallicafan. I just loaded up at checkpoint C on legendary and was able to get "What Does It All Mean?". Maybe it was because I had previously beat the mission on legendary without getting it?

Count FlandersI can confirm that if you've beaten the level on Legendary, but forgot the data pad, it does spawn if you load Rally Point Charlie. 👍

I The WiseI can confirm that if you didn't beat the mission on legendary and load up rally point Charlie on legendary you can still get datapad 11. And it's easy, because there won't be any enemies.

NewbieKenobiTo add to above comments - datapad does indeed spawn on Legendary EVEN if you have not beaten the mission on Legendary before. I completed it on Easy, went back to rally point Charlie and found the datapad.
