At 10am this morning, I left my desktop running happily as usual. Got home at 5pm and it was totally screwed. Couldn't boot into Bios, Safe Mode, or Recovery.
After a moment of sheer panic, I dragged out my Acronis Boot Disk and booted Windows from there. Ran CHKDSK which recovered an orphaned file A0033637.ini into directory 54665 and found errors in MFT Bitmap attribute and in the Volume Bitmap.
I scheduled CHKDSK /F and rebooted, and everything seems to be back to normal now.
My question is - does anyone have a clue as to what may have caused this so that I can try to prevent it happening again??
