Initially, check the integrity of your hard drive using the “chkdsk” command.
Next, if you’re trying to recover critical data, create a duplicate of the same and move it to your computer.
After doing it, create a removable media called “DETech Standalone bootable removable media” to continue the data recovery process.
Create the media and boot your computer using it. (Note: Contact us if you need technical support in creating the removable media.)
