Windows 7: diskpart/clean by accident....need to recover partitions,begging :'(

and here is the last thing I told im gonna ask if I could get this right.

right at the moment, I have a recovered mbr and partition table. then even this windows installation is unstable as I feel. so do you guys think that this mbr will get corrupt eventually. Im afraid cuz this mbr and partition table isnt pure as a clean installed windows like it was before. so is it better to reinstall everything from a scratch( I copy this data some where else and thinking of running clean all for the entire hard ), or would this be just fine same as before?

and can you guys give me any suggestion why Im having that old lagging thing even after a format? I need to clarify that there wasnt any lags when this image was made. notebook boots and ready in 1min time.

Glad to see you are back up. Because you chose to restore you are back where you were when the image was taken so any problems you had then will still be there. Once you have your data backed up you can either do a fresh install or restore the image you took with your software installed.

suspect,
Inform yourself regarding SkyDrive.

SkyDrive IS secure.

and one heck of alots more secure than leaving files on your computer's hard drive or an external drive which can be stolen!

suspect,
since your lagging is a completely different problem than what you started with, my suggestion:

Start a fresh thread stating your problem. You will attract the attention of those who may have been there, done that.

thanks,
karl

and gregrocker, kaktussoft, karl, I know how important it is to backup data. but these I did not wanted to have a second copy. cuz some are very confidential. I am not keeping backups in the same drive. this was kept in here because if I had a failure while Im away from home, I can get it up and work though. thats what I had in mind keeping a backup here. Actually I keep two. this base one and one that have all the softwares installed. so I think im not wrong at there but thinking ahead as Im using a notebook and travels. I think you guys agree with that.
Everything from backup restored succesfully. Now you can boot ... sort of... went back in time when making the backup.

and of course you have same problem as then!

You want a clean install anyway?
I was hoping not. because it takes almost 2 days two set up everything same as before. everything means every software setting. especially in autocad I was in a hope that formatting and restoring this image will fix the issues. so what choices am I left with?

Do you know what you're talking about???? partition table has pointers to the partitions (max 4)
MBR contains partition table, disk signature and a very small bootcode. That bootcode can be refreshed easy by "startup repair" or "refresh mbr" in partition wizard.

All is fine now as far as MBR is concerned.... unless there's a rootkit virus in the bootcode

yeah, Im using live mail, so know about skydrive and google drive. and I know most of people can bypass a startup password. Even I can do that with my pen drive. but most of my folders are lockers. so its not as much as easy to crack about stealing, thats really unfortunate situation though.

actually I dont. zero knowledge. so thank you. then I do not need to wipe out my entire hard drive. I think I got you correctly. so can you tell me how to do this refresh mbr? just need to satisfy myself.
