Okay, so the friendly tech got my friend halfway through re-loading Windows on her laptop without mentioning that she would lose anything she hadn't already backed up. She had to stop halfway through (thankfully), and I pointed out the problem to her before she was able to pop in the disk they sent to finish the job. I'm hoping her files are still on the hard drive, but have never opened up a laptop. Is a laptop hard drive the same as a desktop? I know how to set it up as a slave drive if it is, but am worried that I'll open the thing up and not know what to do next. Anybody able to verify that they're the same?
