Few days ago I was giving instruction to my mom over the phone on how to reset the router as the internet was down (reset wifi/router). Obviously, unplugging those cables weren't good enough for her so she plugged every computer-related cable out and then back in.

And now, all my files and most of my programs are gone, or I should say, invisible? When I try to use the windows search function to locate my songs on iTunes, it won't show up. But when I track it using "Get Info" for each song, it says it's in my C:etc/etc/etc folder. Problem is, when i open my Local Disk (C, there's only one file named "BOOTSECT.BAK." Does anyone know how to fix this?

your windows might be corrupted if the power went out by pulling a cable out. try doing a system restore. if it that doesnt work, post again. or you can try the computer thread

and pretty much elaborate on everything else in that post.

please and thank you >_>

EDIT: also please tell me you asked google first.

One can only assume that she unplugged every cable that was in the computer and plugged it back in. Probably while the power was on. Silly woman.

try to restart the computer from a previous checkpoint like a week before that happened. i forget how to do it, google on how to do it unless someone else in this thread enlightens you. it'll probably be ok then. but if it is all messed up, maybe time to format hard-drive?

Delete system 32

Is that still bannable to tell someone to delete Sys32?

Or is it only when you actually try and convince them?

Anyone who actually deletes their system 32 deserves to have their system 32 deleted

Newer additions of windows dont allow users to delete sys32 anymore anyways
