Re: Missing Files - Vista Ultimate 64bit
I ran checkdisk and there were no problems found. During checkdisk 10416
files were processed. I have been working with windows for many years and
never had a problem that stumped me as much as this. My major problem is that
most of my software which was purchased online is on that disk. I was able to
copy some images and documents to C: using Testdisk-6.7-win but was am unable
to open the exe files.
