You could boot to Knoppix to manage files.

It's a Linux OS that runs from the CD-ROM.

Once you have Knoppix for this sort of thing and testing a system you willl be glad you have it. It loads in just a few minutes from the CD-ROM, is temporary and removes it's self when your done.

well i found out why my hard drive wasnt being detected on knoppix or any other manager even dos. it because my mate came round and was on my computer and he saw that i still hadnt activated windows so he thought he might crack it. i hadnt gotten home yet otherwise i would not have let him mess with that computer as its got all of my dads work on it anyway the idiot gets a crack for media center edition and i have home edition as soon he turns on the computer there an error. anyway im still wondering where did my two partitions go. i have downloaded a dos bootable undeleter and it says the partitions have been deleted but why would changing the registry (cracking it) delete my partitions.

hmm a good question and to answer your doss keyword command questions well heers a few you should know. dir shows your files on your selected disk. c/d or is it c\\d? changes your directory if you use it right to choos a diffrent drive. you can veiw your files if you type in their name and typing help as i recall will show you most of the commands
