I am not entirely sure how but my Windows 7 is not starting properly and after running the automatic repair program multiple times and still not fixing I gave up. (I am using a Laptop)
My option now is to install Windows 7 again from the partition that is provided by the manufacturer.
I have 2 questions:
- If I install from that partition will it REMOVE all of my existing files?
- Assuming that my old data would be removed I took the Hard Drive out connected it to an external enclosure and started copying the Hard Disk to another computer. The problem I am running into are the files that are saved under users that have/had passwords on their computer (Even though this is a home computer their were 3 users). It gives me a pop-up saying the Administrative password is required (I have that), but then just cannot open the folder, and if I just copy only some files / folders are copied but not all.
