A client of mine informed me of this error message above two days ago. I think that he has been experiencing the problem longer than he cared to tell. At any rate after seeing the error message I told them that his hard drive is having a serious problem we must backup his data and that the hard drive must be replaced.
Since then I have replaced the hard drive in question and installed a new one. When I attempt to copy folders from the drive in question to the new hard drive I continue to receive the error:
Windows was unable to save all of the data or the file \DEVICE\HarddiskVolume3\$MFt. The data has been lost.
Is there a way to restore the Master File Table? If so how?
By the way this drive is no longer the C drive. The drive in question is an 80GB hard drive connect to the laptop via USB.
