I have a gateway computer with a 10gig hard drive with windows 98 on it. The other day my friend was typing a word document and the computer frooze so she powered it down to restart it and the computer came back up to a window with the logo that reads GO BACK BY WILDFILE, and a box with a message that reads
GO BACK ( 118 )
Your computer crashed or was shut down while go back was in the middle of recovery on disk 1. Unless there was a serious problem and recovery continues to fail, you should allow go back to continue the recovey process.
Do you wish to continue recovery?
When I click yes nothing happens and if I click no nothing happens. I booted the computer with a windows 98 start up disk to check if all our files are still in drive c:\, and all I get is a message that states that Windows 98 has detected that
drive C: does not contain a valid fat or fat32 partition
1) the drive may need to be partitioned
2) you may be using a third-party disk-partitioning software
3) some viruses also cause your drive c: to not register
Is there a way to rebuild the partition or something? OR a software that we may be able to recover all of our word documents back? Alot of these files is work that has to be turned in to school by the month of may. I think it would be alot easier if we could recover these files as oposed to sitting down and sorting throu a bunch of referenced notes and typing all those pages again. ( Very time consuming ). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in Advanced.
