In the beginning, a laptop existed. Vista Ultimate, security programs, and other programs were installed. Bitlocker was then turned on, key saved, and the computer went to work. Months later, after a bunch of crucial information was stored on the laptop (and not backed up) the computer was brought back, with boot issues. After running some diagnostics, I find it has a failing hard drive, and my meager recovery abilities can do nothing for it. It was then sent to a data recovery center, and after 3.5 months, it has come back. However, now, I have a hard drive with 3 partitions, no OS, no partitions accessible without formatting, and time spent with google has turned up nothing.
Ideas? Suggestions? Is this a good one, or what? Ask if more information is needed for idea generation. Thanks in advance!
