Hard disk keeps wanting to be formatted even though there are files on it!
I recovered my Windows XP machine from the following error:
"Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"
by following the instructions I found on the microsoft site, but now after about 15 reboots, my second hard drive, when I click on it it keeps saying:
"The disk in drive D is not formatted. Do you want to format now?"
Now I have lots of ghost images on this disk and I know they are on there - I just don't know how to see them or understand why this drive now wants to be formatted.
I have replaced the IDE cable and unplugged/plugged the drive back in, but this has done nothing.
Please help me be able to see my files!!
