Bounty: 50

I have a western digital blue disk, which is one of the SMR variations. I’ve heard that they support TRIM command. The disk is accidentally quick formatted on Windows 10, and now seems to be all zero. But, I’m wondering, for a disk it would take illogical amount of effort to actually set all sectors (1TB) to zero. I don’t really understood how TRIM applies to such disks, and suppose to see something like a list of safely deletable sectors or something like that in the disk’s firmware.

So the question is: Is there any way to recover the data from my disk? Including firmware tweaks or hardware tweaks?
