I installed bunch of python tools to run on windows command line and when i restarted the system C drive became D drive and D drive became C drive.

When the computer was restarting it was deleting 1000s of index files, I let it run until it finished and restarted again.

But after restart windows couldn't load. When I checked C drive I could only see HP recovery folder and System folder.

I thought I lost all the files but when i checked D drive, I found all the windows system files and my own files.

Because now windows is in D drive, it fails to load. Is there a way to restore back everything?

Thank you.

UPDATE: I sent my box to IT department and they couldn't fix it, so formatted and re-installed windows. :(

Whatever you try first make full image backups of the drives. Maybe then uninstall the Python stuff? – Jan Doggen Jun 4 '13 at 6:55
python shouldn't have done that. This is PRETTY odd. – Journeyman Geek Jun 6 '13 at 5:59
