Partition corrupted by chkdsk

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD 2GB
I think I need an OS expert's help... My computer recently ran chkdsk at startup. Later on, when I try to access my partition, it states that the drive is not accessible. It seems as though my partition has been corrupted or lost.

When the system automatically runs chkdsk again on the same partition, it states that there is insufficient disk space to recover lost data. Now, it keeps running disk checks at start up and come up with the insufficient disk space error again and again.

Is there a way to get all my files back?

Assistance will be greatly appreciated.

If you can get to the browser, download, update & run anti malware from

If not, I use an external HD enclosure to connect drives to another PC.

stop checkdisk and open in safe mode. copy the chk files off and
clean up disk of junk and run chkdsk again.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
