It is new build pc, clean install, bios raid setup, but i overlooked the system restore function, just went back a few days and everythings back as it should be. Feel a bit stupid should have tried that first.

But a big thankyou Squonk for your time and expertise its much appreciated

Hi Pauly,

I'm glad you have it working again.

There's nothing worse in computing than losing data.

This was a reminder for you to make those backups in the future.
A disk can die on you any day.

Buy a dedicated disk for your backups and make sure you have everything at least doubled on different physical media.

You can backup your system drive with W7's own backup or 3rd party.
That will create a single file.
You can use incremental or differential backups.
That will only backup the files that have been changed,
and not the whole system disk every time.

I recommend not to backup user files into a single backup file,
because when that file is corrupted you lose everything.
Just copy the user files to the backup disk.

Good luck,

Greetings,

Michel
