Windows 7: Problem with HDD(Disk error)

28 Jun 2010   #11

Se7en 32 bit

I'm out of ideeas,probably that files are simply lost.

Booted on partition master CD i started to explore my 160gb drive,but when i click documents and setting,nothing happens.At least,after a Partition recovery wizard process,my pc can start with my hdd connected.I think...recovering my files is hopeless.

I will make later a Copy partition wizard,copy my 100% 160gb partition partition to 1TB external drive and finally i start a format...and what i will recover later from this Copy partition i don't know,but i'm starting to feel hopeless.

I'l wait a reply from you and probably i will start the format.

All user specific folders aren't accessible,but if i enter in windows folder i have full acces .I don't need to recover windows files,i need to recover user files
