Got a sony vaio laptop running vista. there was some sort of problem and the user did a system restore from the hidden extra partition on the drive, losing all their data in the process since it set the machine back to how it was when new.
any chance with any of the apps I have running that they will find data on the unused sectors? would a data recovery firm have better luck?
I'm running recover my files, getdataback, easus data recovery pro.
they are all running and will take a while. but curious if the reimage includes wiping free space?
