Hi,
By restoring it from a back up image or by transferring the contents from another drive you copied the contents to before installing windows.

Hi,
If it was the only disk and you formatted it the D partition is gone
You would of needed to use list volumes after selecting the disk that would of shown all the existing partitions and you could of selected the C partition to format = still very risky though since the disk could of also have 100mb system reserved partition too.

It's always best as you've found to put back up on a totally separate hdd

You can try free mini tool to see if it can see and restore the D partition :/

Thanks for the detailed help. I just went through this ordeal, which took almost two full days, even after following these steps.

One thing I kept running into at first was that the Windows somehow kept switching the Windows Update service's startup type back to "Automatic (Delayed Start)". So something to keep watching at each step is that the service isn't running.

Questions about the last two items:

Quote:
6) After switch your windows update and service settings back to what you had prior and manually check for updates and the rest should show up shortly.
If you wish to keep doing Windows updates completely manually, is there any reason to change the service's startup type from anything but "Manual"?

Quote:
7) After all of the above is completed you can use Option 3 below to reset all of the windows updates components
Windows Update - Reset
Reason? Does this make future updates any faster, save space, or what?

Hi,
I'd leave the service at default which is auto delayed start
Since the newest update client it works as it should or as it has for year without any issues = finds updates shortly after starting up if there are any

The reset is for good measure to clear any failed to install updates from the history yes I would also do that

What I've noticed some security suites like Eset do reset update settings
I do not know if there is a setting one can alter to stop that though but I have not run into it personally.

Manually installing updates is a last resort not something I'd personally want to do every month

First rule is to create a system image Before downloading any updates that way none can really hurt you

Don't failed to install updates just come up again the next time? The first big update I ran was something like 770 updates and I think 120+ failed to install. They came up next time and successfully installed.
