ok while i was using my computer (general useage) it crashed and started back up normaly for the first few times. Then it would not boot up and saying i was missing boot.ini i ran several prompts though CD repair but all said at some point that a file was missing or could not be found.at this point i removed my harddrive and backed up as much as i was allowed using a computer with similar settings. when i was transfering files to the other computer i noticed that all of system32 was gone. my goal is to retain my data especialy encrypted files in my documents, settings and that can go im only after my data(althought it would be nice to keep). if i were to re install windows what would i be likly to lose? thank you in advance
If you all your data is backed up safely in a remote place. You don't have to worry about re-installing windows. Most especially if encrypted. May be it depends on the type of online backup your using. The one I use maintains old and deleted file versions for life. I use; www.safecopybaackup.com. Good luck!
