    I don't know why R will not open. We can try this at the admin command prompt (not Diskpart).

    cd C:\
    R:
    dir

    Take a picture.

    Hopefully it will show KYHI the files and folders he is looking for.

    although it now appears that partition 8 is no longer the recovery image partition - and it can not be reset back to the factory OS

    looks like you'll need to clean install an OS or live with what you have

    PS - you assigned "R" to partition 2 the 260mb efi partition

    I have a a backup external drive too. Is there a way we can recover it from there? Windows 10 is having issues on this laptop that is why I wanted to set it back to the original.

    the biggest file you are showing is 11MB - Not even close to big enough for a system image..

    Ok. Well I did a clean install of windows 10 4 times and it continues to have problems. I went to repair and it wont even let me repair it to me that should work. I guess I am at a loss at this point. I so appreciate your time thank so much for trying to work with me.
