HP repair and replacement policy does not retain or recover customer data.
IF the data is that critical, then you should have spent 10 minutes backing it up to a USB stick.
If you have not already sent the laptop off to HP for repair, then you need to remove the drive and look into data recovery solutions on your own. HP has no responsibility to recover data you won't even bother to back up.
