    Welcome to TSG!

    I'd give Test Disk a try. Probably just need to change the partition type back to 07, which is HPFS-NTFS.
    Spend some time reading thought the examples.

    Be sure to right click the Test disk file and choose Run as Administrator
    After the Quick Search, highlight the partition, then press T to change the type.

    You can browse the partition and even copy files to test before you write the partition table back to the drive.

    Hopefully you had all your files backed up before the upgrade.

    One of the file unlockers might help. Have a search.

    Although I think they mainly work under XP.

    My D: was the recovery partition. Not MyFiles.

    Under XP, folders could be locked and it may have needed a 3rd party app to unlock. Or a DOS box and change permissions.

    Under Win7, I have only found, so far, to right click a protected folder and click sharing and share with myself or everyone.

    I think Bill Gates and his Elves are taking security a bit to far.

    You're Welcome!

    I take it Test Disk did the trick? Quite a handy little tool.

    Glad you got the system going again.
