Default Anyone knows a good disaster recovery tool????

Hi people, I have a computer that was working very well, but lately when I was working on a important project, there was a power fluctuation for a couple of times (I thought that was normal) but after the last power fluctuation my computer refused to boot up. There seems to be a failure of some kind…..but I need to get the projects back that are still in that disk.

I would be thankful if you could suggest any good tools to get the files and documents back.

Have you tried pulling the hard drive and testing it in another computer? While it is possible the drive is dead, odds are the power fluctuations got some other piece of hardware.

Trotter is right. Have to test it in another PC to make sure it is still working.
