    Data files like documents, music, videos, and such, should be no problem. If you had any programs installed on the second drive, they will need to be reinstalled.

    Try using Windows 'logo key' +F, you can perform a better search.




    As a side note, Win 7 has a very good "repair" function, it's not Win XP.

    That's great mate... i used the logo+F and did find them, but i still cant get to them as it is saying that the path is cant be found, it tells me were they were but it doesn't say were they are, when i click on the file it is saying as i said above.
    Thank you again mate

    Hi EvanDavis
    Sorry to say no luck i have d/loaded Revuca and installed it 3 time ,always when run it and it comes to the third stage on 90% it say that it has an error and it shut down.
    I am confused with what's happening though , as the search on Win7 finds them but when i click on the files it say they're not there.

    Regards
