Windows 7: How does suspicious Unallocated logical partition shows up suddenly?

20 Aug 2015   #21

Win 7 64 bit, 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

Thanks again.


May b i need to actually see the screen n what happens...
How do you want to do that?

I am not able to connect to internet using this computer, because it is not bootable.

I do not have a software to recover data. What is the software, you have in your mind.

I learned from this thread that I am able to copy personal files using Repair Disk. I do have lot of installed software/tools for which I do not have KEYS to reinstall. I did review threads about backup in this forum, but I am not able to find a way to do that.

Here are some questions, I have about backing up strategy. I need your guidance/pointer.

How do I able to backup OEM Hidden partition (recovery partition created by Lenovo factory install)?

I have three(3) user logins in this laptop such as Admin, Local user1, Local user 2.

Are there any backup/restore software to pull/push user by user?

What are the additional steps required to preserve the data within these logins/users?

Will I able to restore (bring back) all installed items (Software/tools/Registry entries etc) during this process?

Thanks for looking/helping.
