So I was trying to free up some space on my SSD when I came across an article at www.xdude.com/ssd-hard-drive-windows-7-winsxs
I was following the steps in the article, which entailed moving the winsxs folder somewhere else where it wouldn't take up so much space. Pretty sure I followed all the steps to the letter, up to the step where you're told to reboot...that step with the blue screen warning.
I figured I followed the steps to the letter and I went ahead and rebooted, thinking the blue screen wouldn't happen. Sure enough, it did, and now I can't get into my computer. The article explains that the blue screen happened to this guy too, but he went into the command prompt to reverse the changes he made and he was all set. The only thing is, he doesn't explain how he did it. Now I'm stuck and in the dark, and I have no idea where my winsxs files went and have no idea how to get them back through the command prompt.
Could someone tell me where they could possibly be, given the instructions from that site? I also have a windows 7 disk...could I copy the necessary files from there back into my windows folder through the command prompt?
Reinstalling isn't an option, only because I don't have a disk with my network drivers on it, and right now I'm accessing the internet via a PS3.
