    Just wondering if there is an easy trick to do.

    Old laptop, no original disk but I would like to keep the data/intact as much as possible

    Thought i ask here first since most of the programs look fishy to recover and I didnt want to do a R&R just yet if there is better options.

    Many of those fancy bootdisks come with a reset tool, UBCD for example.

    I have UBCD and it has this on it. It does work for most systems.
