My SSD won't boot, automatically redirected to ssd formating

Hey Guys,

I own a lifebook E734 running on windows 7. Switched to a new antivirus today (avira). Few minutes after installing it, I couldn't open any folders or the windows menu, so I shut it down through the power button. When I started it again, it said that there is a problem with the ssd starting up and it automatically redirects me to the Fujitsu Recovery software with the only option availabe to format my ssd and put it back to default settings.

Is there any way to fix this or do I need to format my pc? I don't have a back up for the last 4 weeks so it would suck quite a bit if I just lost that data.

Thanks for the help.

Re: fix

The first thing I'd do is boot from a Linux disk or USB-stick (not too difficult to make, and free) and see what it says about that disk. If it finds it fully OK, you can copy all data you didn't yet backup (or more) to a USB-stick or external disk (preferable to 2 different devices, to minimize the chance of losing them). Then do the recovery.

But it's possible something is wrong with the SSD hardwarewise. Then a new SSD is the only solution. But then you lost the data that's not on the backup, and you must reinstall your OS from scratch, without the Fujitsu recovery software helping.

Hey, thanks for your reply.

So I finally got it running on Ubuntu through a usb-stick, but I'm kind of lost now. All the programms are still here but I can't find a trace of any other data. Does this mean it's gone or do I have to do something specific to get acces to it?
