    is it a external hard drive? my HDD locked up and had to do a hard restart, reformating the HDD and somone told me to use Recuva, it can recover deleted files or files you cant access that have not been deleted , the software is a bit slow but gets the job done.
  2. Its an internal HDD that only got replaced in November :( due to it frying perviously. We were hoping we wouldn't need to re-format it and re-install the OS etc. There's nothing major on the PC except game saves really that we should be able to transfer over to the laptop temporarily. Do you know of a simple step by step on how to re-format a Windows 7 OS HDD and then is it just a case of inserting the back-up disks when the blank drive starts up again? Thanks
  3. Have you tried restore?

  4. yip restore points have vanished :(
  5. Have been chatting to a mate we're going to re-format and re-install seems to be the easiest option.

    Cheers
