    I did all that and my computer went to sleep even though I have it checked to stay awake. Well when it sleeps then I cannot get it to work it wont wake up so I lost it all. Argh! If we are to restore it we need to do it all at the same time. My computer is having issues so I am standing by to take care of this all at once. Thanks.

    Before you repeat the process over, first open File Explorer. On the left side click on ThisPC. How many drives do you see? You should see C, your DVD player, usually D but not always, and the ones you just assigned drive letters to T, M, N, and R. If they show up there in ThisPC, you don't have to assign the drive letter again. Just do the ones that are missing.

    Another thing, you don't need to take pictures of the Diskpart screen. KYHI wants to see the files that are on T, M, N and R partitions. To get those pictures, double click on T drive. After the window opens take a picture of the window with all the files in it. Then do the same thing for M, N, and R.

    Looks good. Don't forgot to post a picture of M partition. I don't know what to do about partition 8 (R). I guess just wait and see what KYHI has to say.

    so far T has the OEM windows recovery tools.... Good..

    N is an empty partition

    M ?????

    then try to assign drive letter to partition 8 - this way...

    diskpart
    list volume
    select volume # (# being the volume number assigned to the 20GB partition)
    assign letter=R

    post a pic of R
