Help please. My friend (Andrew JW you know who you are) has cocked up his mums PC.. The PC was running Win 95 (Rel 2 I think), with a 6gb hard drive divided into 3 partitions.
He noticed the C drive was a bit full, so he moved a stack of files to E:. Of course now the PC wont even boot. Tried using boot disc to get into dos, to copy files back. It moved some but refused to move others. Went through lots of options, and ended up doing the del command on C,D & E to start afresh. Decided to install Win 98, but message read there was another op system installed so couldn't continue.
To cut a VERY long story short, decision was made to delete all partitions (didn't like them anyway) and reformat the remaining whole drive. Partitions deleted, but unable to format drive using
format c: /s
any many derivations of that from the dos prompt (win898 start up disk got us there). Get the message - bad command.
Now completely lost.
