|We don't know what was wrong with your computer, but reformatting & re-installing Windows should be the last resort. If your "friend" immediately formated without attempting to fix the problem, that's a sign that he's not very computer savy. And the fact that he apparently formatted an 80GB using FAT32 seems to confirm that. Perhaps you shouldn't let your friend work on your computer anymore?|
Open My Computer, right click on the C: drive, then click Properties. What is listed for "File System" - FAT32 or NTFS?
