Operating Sys loss
first time poster to this forum, so apologise in advance if i have picked the inappropiate board.
my machine is an AMD athlon, running Windows 2000, partitioned into two drives, c and d, 160 gig drive split into half using partitionmagic by powerquest. (i think)
I booted up the pc last night, to discover that the entire c drive had been converted into fat32 files, that is all 10,000 files were now 314MB split files, *twitches alot*. c drive, being of course, where the operating system is *slap self*..left with 4 folders on C drive containing all my data *scream*
But, d drive was totally untouched.
Now, there were no issues prior to booting up, was just a normal start, nothing had occured out of the ordinary, all virus scanners uptodate, firewall, security patches uptodate, spyware, adware etc. all had been scanned and updated throughout the week up to that point (for whatever worth that is)
apart from the loss of data, which easyrecovery seems to have fits trying to recoup, im more intrigued with that the heck happened.. than angry, although at the time my language hit new heights.
anyone have any clues ?
