Error 15: file not found in Windows7 ?! Tags: Hard Drives Windows 7 Computer Western Digital Storage Last response: February 11, 2011 2:24 PM in Storage Share Hellpatrol February 11, 2011 10:31:11 AM Hi guys! Was going to boot my computer this morning and I have a Western Digital Green 500gb and bang I get error 15: file not found and that's it. I have tried to read from it through another computer but it is not possible to access it at all. Anyone know what could have caused it and even more interesting ..... is it possible to solve somehow? All rescue tools I tried so far can not even start because of this drive. Other drives start fine. Spotmau, ghost and similar won't start with this drive connected. Thanks in advance. /T More about : error file found windows7 saint19 a b $ Windows 7 a b G Storage February 11, 2011 12:02:56 PM Hi. Did you tried with the Windows 7 DVD using the repair OS option?
