It gives a short list, which at the end says
5 file(s) 0 bytes

:whistling: This is not looking good, aalh004. Did you have a lot of important data on that partition?

Let's try one more command. At the prompt, type chkdsk /r and press "Enter".
If it says the drive is busy, press Y to schedule the check at the next boot. Reboot.

Does this check run or do you get an error?

That's it, huh? Not a good sign.

Try your idea and install on the D: partition and see if you can see anything on the C:. I think the file system on C: has become corrupt. That's pretty tough to recover from...if it can even be recovered.

What were you expecting to see from that last command?

If the check had found any file system at all, it should have taken upwards of 30 to 45 minutes to run...even longer in most cases. It would have checked all the clusters on the partition and tried to recover bad or corrupt sectors...no file system = no check.
