Are you trying to recover files that have been deleted? If so, you should be able to recover them from the Recycle Bin.

However, if your system has crashed, you can try a repair of the Windows installation. You can do this by inserting your CD, selecting Install - do not choose Repair and do not opt to use the Recovery Console. When Setup gets to the point where you choose the partition it will install Windows to, select the partition that Windows is already on and it will tell you it can attempt to repair the installation. Choose to attempt the repair and it will do so. Unless your system is badly damaged, the repair should work OK

The recovery console is limited by default.

Good luck

this link will give you a list of commands for the recovery console. by the way it is ChDir to change directory.

chdir command doesn't work as the way, isn't chdir the same as cd???

Windows XP and the recovery console is a fairy tale.

Install the drive as a slave on a machine with win2000 or xp.

Recover your files. If necessary you can run recovery software.

If your drive is having problems, like bad sectors you will never get anywhere using the repair console.

Get your files first then try to fix the drive.
