Few days ago, my laptop encountered Unmountable_Boot_Volume problem with the
following error details: 0x000000ED (0x81A5F6F8, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000),
in which resulted to failure in booting up Windows or going to Safe Mode.
However, I've managed to boot up using UBCD4Win CD and run some diagnostic tests that
came with it. I used HDTest to check the entire HD and the result showed 0% damage in the
whole HD. But when I ran Bart's Stuff Test on C:\ an error appears:
data error "'Cyclic Redundancy Check', getVolSize() on device failed."
I've also tried running chkdsk /r on C:\ in the recovery console but still returns errors,
saying that the "Volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems".
On the xplorer2, I could normally browse the files on the ramdisk (B:\) and D:\ drives
except C:\. All drives are shown but C:\ does not reveal disk details (size, type, etc).
When I would right-click C:\ to view the properties, it would say that it is not formatted
and would prompt me to format the drive.
The only way I could browse C:\ is through FileRecovery, where it shows C:\ containing
about 40GB, FAT32, bootable disk. I found copying the files possible, but I would need
a large storage space to transfer everything into.
By the way, I know C:\ and D:\ (partition?) belong to the same HD, but I wonder
why only C:\ has the problem.
Is there any way I could restore my harddrive without erasing the files and programs?
Btw, my laptop is a Compaq Presario R3000.
I really would appreciate all the help you can give.
Thanks very much in advance.
