My windows 10 laptop went kaput and it doesn't reach the login screen anymore.
I tried the repair options - fixing the start up steps,etc but i get the message that it can not be fixed.
So i decided to re-install windows to repair the machine (I do not want to lose the data already on the laptop).
So i went back to the repair options and tried the command line option
c:\>manage-bde -off c:
This resulted in an error:
the file or directory is corrupted or unreadable.
So what are my options - is there a way i can recover this installation (without having to delete the partition). My main aim is to recover my data on the disk.
