Erase Windows Computer Data

Don't Pay For Any Program That Claims To Erase Your History Until You See This

erase windows computer data
If I use the start up disks to repair the OS, will it erase any data on my computer?

I have irreplacable pictures and videos on my computer. Will repairing/reinstalling my OS (windows XP) erase any of that data?

Two answers:

If you reinstall Windows, kiss your information goodbye. Chances are you’ll have to do what’s known as a Destructive Recovery in order to fix whatever went wrong.

However…if you insert your Windows Disk, boot up, then enter the setup utility choose the “Repair” option. Now enter:

/chkdsk p

Let the utility run, then enter it again:

/chkdsk p

That should fix any startup error you have and repair the boot sector while also not touching any of your precious files.

Good luck!
