Is there anyone that has this laptop that can help me, please. Have just used a programme, [will not name it] and it has wiped the Drive D contents which includes the recovery system.

System restore only works on the C drive I'm sure.

Have just done a system restore, no luck with drive D

Buteman.... thanks for your input. My C Drive is ok, I need the recovery files and drivers when I go back to factory default i.e as when it came.

Hi All
Don't quite know how to describe this problem so bear with me. When typing a sentence at a certain point the cursor would jump backwards w/o my knowing as I am not looking at the screen. I then realised on looking up that some of my sentences are all jumbled up. Sometimes it jumps when I use the space key and sometimes randomly. Can anyone shed some light here as it is driving me up the wall? Thanks

Sorry meant to publish this in a different thread in Helproom. Now there.

Try one or more of the many freeware file recovery programs out there

it should be able to recover the data from your recovery partition as long as no other data has been written to it in the meantime, in other words do not enable Windows system restore on the recovery partition , if it can be recovered you would likely have to write the recovered files to an external drive , then copy them back to your recovery partition later

If you have deleted the recovery files from your D drive you may have problem recovering them due to the size.

Not sure about the laptop but usually with Medion PC you get a window/vista disk and a disk with all required drivers so you could install if the recovery files become corrupt. Check that you have these disks and keep them safe also make backup copies just in case they get scratched.

Byrnit....Thanks, yes I have the disk/s but I'm sure that to aid the recovery, Medion put a restore folder and a drivers folder on the D Drive. It would be a lot easier if I can contact someone who has this laptop. At the moment I am using "Recuver" and have dowloaded another recovery programme. However, the drive has been written to by the rogue programme which I will not name. If I cannot get any further with this I will have to go out and buy a Vista o/s disk.

Going on from aforementioned... the need to go back to factory settings is because I am giving the laptop to my son, so, he wants it "clean"
