    Unable to Start Windows 10 RAW drive problem


    Unable to start windows 10. Tried to System restore, system image recovery, startup repair, go back to the previous build, & reset this PC all did not work. Tried in "command prompt" chkdsk C: /f /r /x, but i get the error "The type of file system is RAW." "CHKDSK is not available for raw drives." I have tried to load raw drive recovery software via "command prompt", but it says the subsystem image is not supported. Please help!! Has anyone ever gone through this?

    Hi ahdamb and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please have a read here. Sounds like it's time for recovery software.
    File System Is RAW And CHKDSK Is Not Available for RAW Drives - EaseUS

    Sometimes, the drive fails in such a way that it becomes RAW, which usually caused by a sudden power failure, stop error or virus attack.

    Or, Recuva (free).

    I have a solid state drive and it is an internal drive. Is there anyway to run the recovery software from the command prompts? I keep getting an error message when I try? Is there one that works when others won't? To fix this problem I really can only access the command prompt.

    You could boot to Kyhi's custom recovery media and run Recuva from it.
