Ok...I went to go put the .bin file into the C: drive and I noticed it looked strange when I opened the C: drive. I hadn't noticed this before. I took a screencap and didn't do the MBRfix yet in case something was wrong.

That's interesting.

Place the file there and proceed with the instructions anyway. I'll look into this in the meantime.

Boot your computer into the Reatogo environment again

Double-click listparts.exe in your USB drive. Listparts will start to run.

  • Press the Scan button.
  • When finished scanning it will make a log Result.txt on the flash drive.
  • post me the new Result.txt log please.

Hi, Skiminims. Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to have to go for a format and reinstall in this case. Do you have a Windows XP disc for the version yo have? And what version is stated on the product key sticker on your computer (if there is one)?

Also, are you concerned with any data? If so, recovering the personal data from the C: partition will be our next thing to do.

I was worried that this would be the outcome. I do not have any windows XP discs for that computer and just purchased a laptop to replace it. However, there is data from the desktop that I would like to recover if possible. So I would love instructions on how to go about doing that.

Ok, I just checked my version of Reatogo (an older one) and it has Handy Recovery icon on the desktop. If yours also has that program, double click it. Select the C: drive and then click the Analyze button.

Let it do its thing, and when it's done analyzing, check if it actually reveals files and folders that you recognize. Or even better: post a screenshot here.

Yep, the partition is messed up. But not without hope.

Do you have an extra storage medium to back up your needed data, preferably an external hard drive (or even a typical size flash drive if the data you're after is small enough to fit)? Just asking from now so you're prepared.

But before that, since you have TestDisk on the desktop, I want to see what TestDisk has to say.

  • Double-click TestDisk.
  • Select No Log (use the arrow keys to navigate) and press Enter.
  • Select the concerned hard drive. Let me know if you need help here figuring out the right option.
  • Press Enter to Proceed.
  • Select Intel.
  • Press Enter to Proceed.
  • Select Analyse and press Enter.
  • Post a screenshot of TestDisk's display of partitions.

yes, I do have an external drive that I plan on using to extract any data (if possible). Here is the screencap from TestDisk:

  • Double-click TestDisk.
  • Select No Log (use the arrow keys to navigate) and press Enter.
  • Select the concerned hard drive. Let me know if you need help here figuring out the right option.
  • Press Enter to Proceed.
  • Select Intel.
  • Press Enter to Proceed.
  • Select Analyse and press Enter.
  • Confirm at Quick Search to proceed.
  • When asked if TestDisk should do a search for partitions created under Vista, type N and press Enter.
  • Let it do its quick search for lost partitions, and when it's done, post a screenshot of its displayed results.
