I did a web search and followed the directions that are outlined on this topic: http://www.geekstogo...p-into-windows/
I was able to load the OPTLENet.exe onto the cd and open it on my laptop. However, when I opened the OPTLE file and selected the D: drive (the one that I have information on), it states "Does not support Windows 2000 or later."
I have loaded the Farbar Recovery Scan tool and ran the program. It gave me the following:
