I've done everything on this page but it didn't work. C: doesn't contain the right files and D: is corrupted. X: had the right files but in the end they all went to 0 bytes. What do I do???

I tried to repair problem by "Starup repair" but it seems to stuck to next step, like forever, without providing an answer for me. So i consider it as a faiure and went on command prompt way, but i fear that i am going to lose my files. Is there such a chance?

Also, step 13 gave me quite diffent result from the ones you mentioned.

Windows 10

Hope someone can help. Here's what happened. Last Thursday I shut down my computer and a update installed. The next day I tried to turn on my computer and my computer was stuck in a loop that said "preparing automatic repair" and would shut down and repeat.

I tried this fix and it worked! But at the end of the day as I shut down my computer I got another update installed and again has crashed my computer. What do I need to do to get out of this situation????

Thanks Mr Dzomlija. Like others I have registered just to say well done. I was given an Acer Aspire laptop to look at, running Windows 8.1, but tried this method and it worked just fine. The symptom was the same with the eternal automatic repair loop and after spending two days recovering boot files, system restores, trying to refresh without a full reset and running chkdsk, sfc etc. this saved me a lot of frustration. The only way I could do anything was to load Windows 8.1 repair onto a USB stick, as there was no DVD Drive on this laptop and then boot from it, which allowed me to use the command prompt (which at least enabled me to backup all the user files). Great detailed tutorial and only took minutes. Others may not be so lucky if their problem is not registry related. The automatic repair loop seems to be a major problem, especially with Windows 8, but gives no information as to its cause, just takes you round in circles.
