Ok, but we're talking about 200 years of occupation, with access to TL9+ drones and mapping software. Every inch would have been surveyed and data-mapped to a 3D model, and every fallen crate and broken robot would have been gathered up and analysed or salvaged by now.

To plausibly retain unknowns, you'd have to say either that working alien tech has quarantined massive areas, or perhaps say that any time one faction has occupied it, it has been quickly ousted by another faction before any work could get done.
