    Why not look into recovery tools for the laptop? (assuming it's Windows)

    yes, they are well gone from the recovery bin, however not much has been written on the drive since, so I am hoping it has not been written over

    Canadian Eh!
    A great one is Virtual Labs for windows/mac, it costs money but it works amazing!! You buy a quota (ex: 1TB) of recoverable data and then you can use the software for up to whatever you decide to purchase. My work has purchased 1TB quota and we've barely scratched the surface on that amount.

    Unfortunately I cannot recommend any data recovery program for Mac that will recover NTFS or FAT volumes. Cleverfiles claims to allow recovery of NTFS and FAT on Mac but I never heard of them before nor used their products. So you would have to find that out yourself. They probably have a limited trial.

    I'm a fan a Nucleus Kernel myself. They are the most robust solution I have found in data recovery. They also offer software for just about any type of device or file system. Unfortunately they only offer Windows software.

    Looking at the User Guide only HFS and HFS+ are supported file systems by the Mac version.
