How to fix windows 7 on a SSD after deleting folders off seperate hdd
Nov 19, 2012, 10:56 PM
I foolishly removed folders from my HDD which I mistaken for one I was cleaning up.
For some reason there were windows folders on it even though my operating system is on a separate SSD.
I did it in mini XP using hirens.
I tried several ways to reinstall and recover the folders before restarting my pc to see if I had stuffed up.
On restart it went into repair mode,I tried a few things, still no good.
Two questions, 1 why is there OS folders on my HDD? 2 can i recover or do i reinstall?
