What are the effects of a Restore?

So I stupidly and w/o thinking intentionally restored my ATV. It was a LSOD after having some issues w/ Saphire and I didnt even know what LSOD was until after going through the pain. Anyway, I had just downloaded some paid content...

So, the question I have is this: When I do a restore is there anyway to recover the data that used to be on the drive? First is there a way w/o voiding the warranty? The second way is cracking the case and seeing if anything can be carved from the drive. When a restore happens, I dont think it formats the drive as it happens too fast so the data should be there unless over written...right?

Anyone done a recovery before?

My ATV is 3.0.2 and I flashed it using the awkward TV (free) method, 160Gb drive.
