If your Laptop is lost or stolen you dont have to worry much because now you have some chances of recovering not only the data but the complete laptop or your PC. Download Locate PC on your computer which is a 100% free software working when its connected to the internet. This works similarly on how the lost mobile phone software works because that sends a SMS and this software sends a email to the original owner.

The software will send a secret email without the new owner having any knowledge of it with complete information which can be helpful for the law enforcement agencies to track it down.
