- What's an authentication code, and how did you go around the problem that you didn't have it?
- What is "it" in "it shows 8 GB". It can't be Vista, because Vista says (or shows?) it's empty. I don't see, however, see anything else in your post "it" could be.
- And HOW exactly does Vista say it's empty?
- Don't you have a backup of that stuff? Then you risk losing it, in fact. Let's hope it's not necessary.
I had to completely reload Vista due to a drive crash. I didn't have the authentication code that came with Vista. Everything that I had, photos, music, docs, etc. were backed up on the D drive portion of the drive. Is there any way for me to access this drive. It shows 8GB are contained in it but Vista says that it is empty. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can tell me how to recover my stuff! I am limited in my PC knowlege so please be gentle. = )
