Release Preview - I stupidly deleted a .ini file thinking it was spurious and now my Desktop no longer is listed on the Metro Screen.
Suggestions?
I don't have a restore point unfortunately.

    Using non-RAID on purpose as I find it too fussy and temperamental.

Just did that with the installation media in the drive and it couldn't complete...possibly because the installation path was actually the .iso I used to make that media.

Reset failed, probably for the same reason. I need to tell Windows that it was installed from another path perhaps?

That's exactly what I did. It completed but the process failed.

Thanks but it didn't help. I simply formatted and will reinstall at some later stage. It's not my main OS thank goodness.
