    Seeing that drive x is a symptom of some file corruption in the OS. I have seen it once myself. IIRC I just re-installed the OS but there must be a better way.

    THis sort of thing is a really good reason for using one of the sophisticate back up programs like Macrium.

    Try typing "rstrui.exe".
