No matter how sturdy your hard drive is, it is prone to failure and data loss. In fact, it is not necessary that after its failure, a user loses data. It is also possible that accidental deletion, intentional or unintentional formatting, system error, software bug, operating system error or even virus attack, can cause havoc to your system, leading to complete hard drive data loss. In such grave situations, a user has to opt for recovery using backup, or using hard drive recovery software.
Consider, on trying to start you Vista, you receive the BSOD (blue screen of death) with the following Stop error message flashing on it :
And, if that isn't all, Vista refuses to start, until the problem disk is repaired or removed.
Reason for the Stated Stop Error:
Every time the $TxfLog system file becomes corrupt, such messages flash. In such a case, the common log file system driver, i.e. the Clfs.sys driver, doesn't fix the corruption of the $TxfLog file.
How to Resolve the Stop Error message:
- Get hold of the Windows 7 installation disk, or Windows 7 Beta disk.
- Insert this disk into the disk drive and boot from it.
- After the boot process is complete, when prompted to perform Windows 7 setup, cancel the same. You don't have to install Windows 7 to sort out the problem.
- After the system boots successfully, remove the installation disk, and restart the computer. If the system boots properly, rest assured, your problem is resolved.
- However, if it doesn't, then you'll have to reinstall the operating system.
Needless to mention, reinstallation means data loss. In such a case, you will need to opt for using specialized software and tools. These third party software perform sophisticated algorithms to the hard drive to read the data that has been lost and to perform recovery of the same. With detailed context sensitive help manual, and easy to understand interface, these tools can perform complete hard drive recovery.
