Your best chance is to contact Sony's support website and see if you can order recovery media from them at a nominal cost.

There is usually a button on wireless routers that puts them in to "discover" mode. You did not mention the wireless router you have so you'll need to locate the button on it by a visually looking for it or reading the manual. Once it's in this mode, you extender should begin to communicate with it and vice versa.
Although not a requiredment...it is highly recommended to have the extender and your wireless router from the same manufacturer. Mixing and matching will probably lead to miscommunications of both devices.

you can recover deleted files from computer hard drive with data recovery program

Could be a recovery partition. Could be hard drive software partition. Could be junk.

Leave it and have an extra 10GB drive later. Or, delete it and take advantage of the space. If the recovery recreates it you will know where it came from.

On a side note, I suggest partitioning the 1TB drive. Make a OS partition, and possible 2 other partitions. It will help with defrag and keep your important files out of the OS side in case another recovery is required.

Try it again and pray.

1. For Error 320 or 330 , if possible, run the RAM hardware diagnostics to determine if the RAM has failed.
2. Disconnect all external hardware that is attached to the computer.
3. Reset the BIOS to the factory defaults.
4. If the RAM passes the test, only the HDD requires service.
This error also may occur if you are performing a system recovery on a new unformatted hard drive or if sector 0 of the hard drive was cleaned.
Select the "Restore Complete System" option from teh recovery discs and during the installation wizard choose YES for the option "Do you want to keep the factory default hard drive size?".
