jabrwky Posted April 21, 2016 Share Posted April 21, 2016 I didn't know where to post this, so here goes. I have a Win8.1 Pro install on a 3TB HDD (also had ab/5 VM's as .vmdk in VBox on it -- which is what hurts!). Trouble started when i accessed a text file from a bootable usb-installed system for convenience. When trying to boot from the HDD, a message came up about the drive being "locked. Please unlock the drive and try again." Win8.1 was unbootable after that. Tried ALL the usual cmd fixes, repair options from 8.1DVD, then (maybe stupidly) remembered MariumReflect had a 'repair boot' option--still unbootable. Tried booting into Slaxware live CD, and could see many files--but NO VM's--or VirtualBox VMs folder--I searched thoroughly -- no joy. I ran a deep scan with GetDataBack, and found everything BUT the VM's. Searched for *.vmdk* and found only 0-bytes files except for an old uininstalled Kali vmdk. Yes, you could just delete the partition and start over--but how to find what's not showing up? Also nothing visible in application data under username for firefox profiles. The Vol C:\ drive is marked "inactive" at this point. I'm in need of some genius help. Any ideas on this one? Thanks everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
