My hard disk (20Gb)was formatted as C:(14Gb) and D:(6Gb) my CD was f:. operating systems and programs on C: and all other data files on D: Today I can't access my data at all, my CD has become D: and C: is reporting only 14Gb. I'm not sure if my son has given the wrong response to Scandisk (access partion question) as he says the PC crashed yesterday or what has happened. I did save an Excel file to D: last night so it seems to have disappeared today. OS is Windows 98 SE. I'm not sure what method was used to partion initially. Can someone please help - I've an awful lot of files missing!!!
Thanks LastChip Sorry for the delay - been away. All the files appear to be there when accessed from MSDOS. Also when booting Windows from DOS (ie type Win and enter) D drive is present with all the files, but not when Windows is booted normally. How do I get Windows to access these files?
Well this is weird. I accessed a file I required through DOS. Then after turning off the PC and rebooting my lost drive is back! - Any ideas why? It's still here so I haven't tried the Registry restore. Thanks for your help, but I would like to know why it seems to have been restored after an excursion into DOS.
