  1. I have a Samsung SSD 830 Series drive installed as drive C: on my desktop, with Windows 8 on it. (I also have Windows 8 BitLocker encryption set up for the drive.) This morning I installed Windows updates, about a dozen of them. (Unfortunately I don't remember what was in the list.) The updates screen showed that updates failed. I decided to reboot and try again... When computer was booting, it got hung up on the boot screen. I booted up into recovery console and switched to drive C: and ran the dir command to see what files I show on it. As a result I got 0 files and the empty space of 114,491,392 bytes: The drive is a 256GB Samsung 830 Series SSD, that the OS, Windows 8 was installed on. It had about 56GB of free space left on it. Ding it! Does it mean all my files are gone? Why is it showing that I have no files on it? I haven't run any recovery tools on it yet. Are there any that may recover this drive? Anything specific for Samsung SSDs? (PS. It must be available to run from a bootable USB drive.)
