Windows Registry saves information for almost all configuration settings and options on Windows operating system. The registry also contains critical information related to user-interface, applications (both inbuilt and third-party), kernel, SAM, and device drivers. This hierarchical database can get corrupted due to fatal virus attack, operating system malfunction, and incorrectly using Windows Registry Editor. Two major hazards that a Windows 2000 user encounters after registry corruption are – unbootability of operating system and inaccessibility of hard drive data. In such situations, a valid backup acts as a boon and allows the user to restore data. However, inaccessibility of a valid backup does not leave any other option for the user, but to use an effective third-party disk recovery tool.


The above problem can be explained using the below error message:


Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMced” 


The error message pops when the user boots his/her Windows 2000 system. Additionally, the user may also receive another error message:


System Hive Error


After the above error messages appear, the data saved in Windows 2000 based hard drive becomes inaccessible.


Cause:

The above error message appear when Windows Registry is corrupt or missing.


Resolution:

To get past above error messages and to access hard drive data, the user needs to make changes in the Windows Registry. However, the problem might increase:

  • If the user performs incorrect changes in the registry, or

  • If the user is unable to reach system registry settings.


In both the cases, the user needs to re-install Windows 2000 operating system. Although the process of re-installation deletes all the data saved in the hard drive, but it successfully overcomes the above error messages.

Recovery after formatting is possible using an effective disk recovery software. A   disk recovery utility scans a formatted hard drive using powerful recovery algorithms and recovers all lost files and folders. Such software are readily available on the Internet and can be used by a novice.
