Beware those spammers.

This question has been asked before and the file repair replies are nothing new. That is they are the same over and over you find on google.com. That said you know if it's some file repair.com link or similar it's not someone here to help you but a spammer.

Since it was so important, why not use its backup copy?

No one I know today uses such or a Windows PC without backup.
