    Canít boot get a blue screen unaccesible boot device


    I figured out the reason Iím getting the blue screen is because my boot drive has been partitioned so the c drive is empty and not bootable on it. The rest of the drive is now d:

    I have no idea how to fix this help. Can I use partition to combine the drives again and make the d: part c: again

    How the heck did you end up with drive like that ? Letter C: is always reserved for OS and something (maybe malware/virus) has wiped it clean. Other possibility is disk going bad.

    New problem I decided to do a fresh install of windows 10 so Iím backing up my downloads directory and my documents directory both of have very important stuff I canít lose. The problem is the documents directory somehow already got deleted. Now how can I get those files back from the cmd prompt. Iíve searched the internet and all I get is this bull $&@$ about using the atria command that of course doesnít work

    Drive d content is the same content I got when I clicked on the main drive in windows 10. C is just a drive with a boot folder and nothing else

    Right now Iím copying everything from the downloads folder to a another folder that wonít be deleted by a fresh windows install. My last resort before I go and buy a new hard drive

    A new install is probably a waste of time but I need to try everything and I canít get a new hard drive until this afternoon anyway (10:30 am here)

    I agree, if you are buying a new HDD in a few hours, just hold off on the install until you get the new drive. After Windows is installed to the new drive, then attach your old HDD as a secondary drive, and then copy any personal files (ie) Pictures, Music, Documents etc not Programs to the new drive from the old.
