Hello wasn't sure where to post this, I'm not looking for tech support just general discussion.
Recently I was working on a PC that had reports of being extremely slow and running super hot
After a couple people looking at it and failing to resolve the issues I had taken a look at it.
I made a back up because of the the people told me the hard drive was bad and wouldn't clone to a different drive.
upon making an image I found my image wouldn't restore to any drive, no reason given. I started exploring my image file and realised
there was a linux swap partition and linux ext4 partition and a linux extended partition of 6 gig total combined size, I couldn't get 2 of the partition to mount to be able to inspect
them but the third mounted. Inspecting it I found and functioning linux operating system. These 3 partition where crammed in between the windows 10 system partition and the boo partition that contained the windows
OS. I restored my image back to a hard drive this time leaving out those partition images and the Windows 10 system booting perfectly fine with no errors. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this
or would like to discuss it, I have kept an image of the entire drive for future inspection.
