I opened settings in Google Chrome and accidentally deleted Person 1 under People which erased all my website data, bookmarks, etc. I couldn't find a fix for it so I decided to system restore thinking it would get everything back. However, I tried to system restore and I get an error saying avast did something. I then disabled avast and did a second system restore but it said it failed and recommended that I run a chkdsk /r. The chkdsk got stuck at 10% so I decided not to wait for it and just restarted my computer and skipped the chkdsk.

First of all is there a way to get back the Google Chrome information that I deleted? If system restore is an option, I need help fixing it so that it will restore correctly. I appreciate the help.

Have you tried starting the computer since you quit the chkdsk?

 

When you run chkdsk /r it sets the drive as dirty bit.  If the scan wasn't completed it most likely will start again when you restart your computer, if the computer will even start.

 

When you stop chkdsk it can damage files.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yeah. it was stuck at 10% so I did a hard shut down and opened it back up spamming the space bar to skip the chkdsk. Worked fine.
