wired / strange characters on boot partition

We increased the size of a vm, after that, the C-Drive is not readable any more, as soon as i map this, there are wild characters like %§&%"/§%$ instead of the windows directory.

is there any chance to reover that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, there is a chance; but, we need details.
How did you increase the size?
From what size to what size?
Is it its own partition?
yes, but you have problems with the NTFS Tables.

I'd image the entire drive to another drive and then run the recovery on that drive.

You can use linux to do the bit for bit copy.

You may also be able to mount this in linux and just copy the files off to another usb attached drive.

Ubuntu is one of the easiest to use.
