Which Tool Was Used To Partition? And......
...is there still a C: drive? During a Chkdsk process, normally Step 1 proceeds fairly quickly. Some of the other Steps can take quite a while but #1 passes fast. As an example, a full 5 step Error Checking on a 80 GB drive can take an hour or more..
It is possible the partition program did a bad job and as a result, disc corruption has been found.. Have you tried removing the new partitions with the same program? It might be good to go back when things were right...
Or..Have you tried to do the standard, full Chkdsk using the instructions below:
Open Windows Explorer, then RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties". When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error Checking" section. When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished,(assume 60 minutes or more) it will restart into Windows.
Hope this helps.
