    May be you have some software that prevent your PC to make changes, like Microsoft Steady State, Deep Freeze or Shadow Copy... installed on your system?

How can i recover data on drive without reformating.


People often feel panic when I see this. If I format the drive, will I lose all my data? If not, how could I get access to my files?


My take is that you may try some data recovery software first, download this one called asoftech data recovery
Windows Data Recovery Software


If does not work, you may have to format (use quick format) the drive and then use recovery software to recover your files.Here's some information about format recovery, think you need to take a look, very useful

Dear Ahrjae,
You are Toast! The last thing a technician wants to do is format a hard disk. A good format erases everything (all the software and corrupted software) and the hard-drive has the smallest amount of information on it (software) waiting to be shaped by the DVD's (Software) you are going to load it up with.
If you have a bad hard-drive you need to determine if it is a software problem or a hardware problem. Some times it is both. If it is software you can delete the program and re-install it. if it is a hardware / software problem you can run a scandisk program and other utilities to fix bad sections on the hard-drive. Electrically cut off bad sections so no memory 1's and 0's will be stored on bad sections of the magnetic hard-disk. Then you can delete bad programs and re-install them.
Sometime the hard-drive fails due to hardware problems. My favorite story is the comparison of the pickup head gliding over a hard disk (metal) and occasionally crashing to an airplane flying 600mph over the earth. Where the airplane would be destroyed if it hit the earth, in the hard-drive the pick-up head gouges out parts of the metal disk.
So your solutions: Buy a new hard drive and format it or take the unit in to be repaired. Hope you have made your restore disks.
regards,
Digital Denizen

My laptop always crash and the only way to recover it is to re format it.i already do almost everything like change the hardrive.memory.it willrun for a few days and then crash again.we thought at first...


Hello.

This is a tough one.

My first thought is that if you reformat your laptop and it crashes, sounds like a hardware (most common: memory or hard drive) problem.

But, you've tested / replaced the memory and the hard drive. Be certain that you have the correct memory for this laptop. Also, run hardware diagnostics.

When you reformat, don't add anything. Just the operating system. Boot it and test for awhile to see if the operating system is stable. Then, add software one at a time and test each time. It may be a long process, but it's possible that your software may be infecting your system.

Hope this helps.
