A recent power failure abruptly shut down my PC. When power was restored, the PC booted up and a prompt detecting that the PC was shut down incorrectly shows. It recommended that it should run some kind of scan disk on HD before continuing the boot sequence.
As scandisk was in the middle of working on checking and repairing startup files, the power was lost again. When restarting this time, it loaded till it needed to detect Windows and just stopped. No operating system detected.
Is there some way I can retrieve my photos and MP3 files off that drive before I need to erase and reformat the drive with a new installation of Windows?
