Well, I let my computer sit for awhile working on a disk intensive program when I noticed it locked up. I was forced to reboot, and to my surprise.. Windows XP hung. I rebooted again, Windows XP gave an error message that it couldn't find file "C:\Windows\System\" or something like that. I rebooted again, I got a blue screen... Okay, so I investigated. I booted from the XP CD.. The files were there. I ran chkdsk /p and it found some errors. I ran chkdsk /r and it blue screened. :\ I was pretty worried the disk might be going bad. I rebooted again and ran a full surface scan and it came up okay, but this time the entire partition was erased.. No files were displayed. I popped the drive in another system. I'm currently using Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional and it is finding all of my "lost" files and making a list so I can restore them, but it is estimated to take something like 200 hours........ I don't feel like waiting. So my question is does anyone know of a way to restore my partition without destoying my data? The files are still there (according to ontrack), but it appears the MFT and whatnot might be damaged.
