A user reports the following with his personal laptop and is requesting my help:
"I was unable to boot the computer, so took out the hard drive and put it into a external SATA docking station. I have access to drive d: but drive c: looks pretty bad. I tried to run a chkdsk /f. It does a lot of stuff but at the end I get this “unable to read the security descriptors data stream” error. Do you have any suggestions what I can do to access this drive? My last backup is about 6 weeks old and it would really be good to have this data."
Is there any hope for the user to access the data? The best thing I could find on Google was this: http://www.pcbuyerbeware.co.uk/SoftwareProblems3.htm#chkdsk
