couple months ago my son was troubleshooting a booting issue on my laptop - in the end he used an asus recovery tool to bring it back to life.
well the acer folder no longer exists and i checked and the recovery drive is no longer populated - he must have forcefully deleted all drives.
im trying to install a new ssd sata into the machine but i cannot install the OS without the recovery drive.
anyone able to suggest how to get this restored? Needless to say the acer support route has been endlessly frustrating.
