You might be booting from an USB Drive / stick without knowing.

Betreff: [AccessD] Horror of horrors

I tried to boot my laptop today and it went into an endless boot loop /
repair.  After mych stuff I got to a command prompt and discovered that the
c: drive is now a raw" disk.

It is booting to an X: drive which is a very basic system.  It contains
windows but no users or anything else useful.  No idea where it (X) is
coming from.

I keep all my dev off on a D: disk which I can do a dir on and see all my
files (whew) but my boot disk (c:) is nowhere to be found.

So.... has anyone experienced this and more importantly figured out how to
get the c: drive back to an NTFS system?  IOW recover the boot

Luckily I have my old computer which is what I am using now.  The "new"
computer is my new Lenovo Legion Pro and I really want to get it recovered
without a format reinstall, although that would not be the end of the
world.  I took the boot drive from this HP Pavillion, put it on another
disk and used that to boot the Lenovo (to keep all of the multitude of
installed programs intact).  Windows 10 did an admirable job of booting and
working doing that.  I have been using the Lenovo for many many months

Until today.

Can anyone help me with this?
