I've reformatted my laptop but now want to restore it to factory settings. As you may know, Sony don't ship recovery CD's (cheap gits), instead, they have all the data saved on a separate partition. I still have the partition, but no longer have the VAIO Recovery Wizard and their website is a f***ing maze. Anyone know where I can download this utility??

As I understand it, you use the Recovery Wizard to burn a recovery CD(s).
According to Sony, if you don't have the Wizard, you can buy recovery cds here:

Downloading the Recovery Wizard does not seem to be an option.

It would be good to know whether or not the Sony Recovery Wizard is downloadable. As far as I can see, the link(s) posted by michaelsachin refer simply to device driver downloads, not generic utilities.
