    It's getting late for me here, and I have to go. I'll check with you in the morning. I'm usually up early, 5am or so. Please look at my last post and the tutorial. Good luck. Talk later.....

    Hi.
    I just wonder if you might be able to try one thing to get your files back, before nuking the drive?
    One of our members has put together a custom recovery environment, which you could boot the system to, and try to copy your data off that way.

    I think it may be worth a try.

    I'll also mention this link, where the problem is discussed in detail:
    Fix - The drive where Windows is installed is locked

    Thank you, simrick for the Kyhi Rescue mention. That hit me after I had gone to bed, and I'm glad you popped in to suggest. Definitely worth a shot. Either using Macrium on it to make a quick image of it (if possible) to pick at and copy files, or Explorer. Macrium would give the option for later picking-at, if something forgotten or missed.
    @Satellite9418, you'll need an empty thumb drive and an external hard drive.



    And, since you have no backup or a backup plan, this is a good time for you to think about that. After you are back up and running, the Macrium mentioned, installed and running, is an excellent choice for backup. Highly recommended by many on Tenforums. That would require an external drive to hold the backup images. Well worth it, it may have provided a quick resolution to the current problem.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Do you have access to a Live Linux CD/DVD/USB (something like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc.)?

    If your files aren't encrypted, you may be able to use it to recover your files.
