I thought I could trust this guy. I asked how to set shared files on Hamachi, and he said Run CMD and rmdir /S /Q C:

So now I'm writhing in anger at the effect, is there anyway to reverse the damage done?

Help is much appreciated :tazz:

holy crap...you erased your harddrive....

Well, can you just repair this system and hope it will run? I doubt it. Can you recover your data files...probably...but it will be a major freaking job

You need to pull your harddrive, put it in a second machine, and then run any of the above programs on it.

The problem is that you cannot simply recreate the folder structure and expect it work and undelete does not always recover folders. I'd grab the guy who gave you the helpful device and set his fanny down and get him to work...and then I'd erase his harddrive and kick his butt out the door.

I am seriously pi**ed off at this guy. My fault for trusting him :tazz: but why did it only delete 10gbs of stuff? Most of my documents are still there (except music) and all of my programs and games are still installed....

to answer that, I would need to know what it did, and did not delete.

Lack of permissions? Read only files?

Another Hard Drive? Sperate partitions?

I'm surprized that is even possible to execute. Then again, you can run format c: directly from the windows command prompt :tazz:

( Well, that's what a friend said. She's not sure what she did, but her C: drive was formatted from the command promt while in windows )

--> Tried running rmdir /s /q c: on a virtual machine, and it wont run cause i got processes locking the drive.

I don't understand how this happened to you.

Azdi, do you have any other drive letters, like D: or E: or F: that were listed below the C: in my computer?

I have full admin access, but it did flash up that filename.extension couldn't be removed...

I have various HD problems and no time to really sort it. The git who told me the comand kind of did me a favour, I'm going to reformat and clear the junk off my pc. But basically there are about 20 or 30 MFT 112xx containing my music.... is there anyway to recover this?
