I have a HD that has lost it's File System. My wife was doing work and the pc froze, so she rebooted. After that, the file system was gone. Normally I wouldn't care but all our family photos are on that hard drive. Does anyone know the best software I can use to try and retrieve those photos?
thats is the whole point of repair, it just resets windows regkeys all your other stuff will be untouched, if you can repair it then you can get windows backup and all your apps and etc will be right there
Unfortunately I still haven't been able to retrieve anything off the HD. Using the Recovery Console has enabled me to see that there are files and folders still present. Everytime I try to copy or enter a folder, I get an Access Denied message. Repairing the MBR hasn't helped the situation either. Now, I am also beginning to hear a physical problem with the drive. The drive makes a clicking sound at times. So now I know that there is a physical problem with the HD. At this point in time I just want to get my son's baby photos and my wife's school work. Has anyone every used diskprobe? Can a person download it?
