Default Samsung R710 Help

I have got a Samsung R710 Laptop and it came with Windows Vista. It had a recovery partition on the hard drive but for some reason this partition is now empty or corrupt and I have lost the recovery disc that came with my laptop, does anybody know if I can contact Samsung and they would be able to send me out a new disc?

Thanks

What do you mean it's empty? It is supposed to be hidden.

I know it is hidden but I looked in the storage management and it just says 10GB free of 10GB

the top one being the recovery hard drive (I think)

I still think It's hidden, thhough, meaning you can't get any data from it. But, I always wipe the drive clean and install a fresh OS when I get something like that.

Samsung should provide a new Recovery CD.
