    Good.. all makes sense.. good, that is, if you have backups. Else you can try data recovery on the failed disk. As to why 1 partition not another, it depends exactly what failure/corruption has occurred.

    Recently saw a recommendation for a program called 'Diskdrill' (free)- data and partition recovery. There are many such.

    Have you seen this problem? I don't know if it is related but worth a look:

    Yes, could be. We're now post event, dealing with the recovery - I don't know that anyone yet knows the cause.. just that MS is working on that as one of the several more common issues reported about the anniversary update.

    @sargan - see my post #11 - I mentioned Diskdrill - I've not used that myself, but have used other partition recovery software previously. Also worth researching how other people have dealt with drives affected like this.

    If you have appropriate backups, you can just reformat of course.
