Yup looks like either a system restore or a new installation of windows is on the cards.. Can you post your system specification?

Re: help

Yeah, new installation needed if you used it to alter the drive/partition where Windows was installed to.

If I say something is messed up of the forum here, what I really mean is it's unrecoverable without going to extreme lengths. If you need data off it, there's a good chance. Windows would not work well again though at all, without clean install.

Re: help

yup sure i have windows 7 professional and 320gb hdd ang 2gb ram.And heres the screen shot from the disk management


Re: help

no windows is running fine but only one of paritions not there

Re: help

as you can see on the screen shot 116.9 Gb partition is there but its not showing up on the list of the drives.And i tried using the easeus partition recovery software after the scan was complete it showed the partition with the data but earlier it was F: but now its showing "*:" and i didn't actually understand how to use it.
