    Recovering files from corrupted User Account?


    I'm trying to get my in-laws laptop back up and running. It's so painfully slow to boot / load anything, and for some reason the start menu won't even pop up (Though thankfully the run command appears quite quickly with a Win+R!)

    Every time I log in it says it couldn't log in to my account. So all the music, photos and documents directories show as empty. Seems it's giving me a temporary profile.
    So I've gone in to the Registry Editor, here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    found one of the profiles has .bak after it, and renamed it back so the correct profile is now listed. (As described here: [FIXED] We cant sign into your account. Windows 10 Temporary Profile Issue - YouTube
    Problem is, the next time it reboots it does exactly the same thing.

    Is there any way of pulling the files out of this user's directories? Perhaps if I pulled the drive and just plugged it in as an external drive?
    I've got no problem wiping this whole machine and starting again, looks like that's exactly what it needs, providing I can pull the photos and music collection from it to restore when I'm done!

    Any help appreciated!

    :)

  3. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.
