Long time no see hehe been a bit busy but now have run into a bit of a problem
Was running the Ubuntu live CD and seem to have run into an error after, probably from something I did but get a "Read Data Error" when trying to start XP. Have most of the files I need backed up externally but just a couple of folders I am missing so would prefer to not format over things and do a fresh install for now.
Anyway I use some boot cd's with partition tools on it to see what is going on if anything is deleted and it is still there about 27gb with 11gb free space. So it seems to still exist however the C drive no longer has C associated with it so could that be part of the problem? No idea how to put a letter back to a partition though.
I did think of installing XP on some of the free space however when resizing the partition in question to create a new one it said something about files sharing sectors or something along those lines and any of the fixes did not work sadly
a whole host of errors haha from sectors sharing files, to a corrupt index i have come across and oh the no C thing.
any help would be appreciated,
