Yeah, type whatever drive letter is for your Windows drive at boot. It should be the same drive letter from step 8 on the first page.

What about at X:\windows\system32 instead.

In addition, try defrag C: /F instead.

Nope it says 'defrag' is not recognized as an internal or external comand, operable program or batch file

Hmm, ok.

Start over. When the command prompt at boot first opens at X:Sources>, type C: and press Enter. C would be the drive letter for the Windows drive at boot.

You should then see C:\Windows\System32>. If not, the C may not be your Windows drive letter at boot.

If you see that path, then Defrag C: /R should work. It will take a while to complete until the prompt reappears again.

The command prompt doesnt start off at X: sources, it starts at X:\sources\system32

See if using the tutorial below to open the command prompt at boot will open to X:\Sources like below.

You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to see if it may help.
