    I still seem to see the same folders when looking in the C: drive. Unless I should be looking somewhere else.

    I will try the MiniTool Data recovery program now and get back to you.

    Is it possible to post screenshots? I'm in the dark, TBH, especialy regarding WINDOWS folder (in caps) etc...

    Diskpart would be a good start as well as Explorer of each drive.

    Okay after a doing a full scan with Power Date Recovery - Damaged Partition Recovery. I have found many of my files that I recognise(so I'm assuming they are all there). Now what?

    Recover them to a safe place- another disk if you have it, or usb stick.

    If you don't have anything else, then recover the files you want to another partition.

    You are probabaly better posting a screenshot of what your win8x drive looks like. Screenrip can do that.

    I just minimised the Data Recovery program and it seemed to close on me.

    rt click the taskbar, select task manager.

    You will see it there, rt click it and select "Bring to front".

    It is a windows 8 stupidity.
