Hi Im a graphic designer working on photoshop and corel draw. The problem started when i was busy installing the game "Prototype". In midst of an installation we had a power failure. After trying anything and everything i know to try and fix it i cant go on with out it. Its a western digital hdd. My pc doesnt want to start. it runs the o/s screen Windows XP prof and the blue bars run twice and then the "blue screen" everyone hates. I've placed it in an external hdd and it gave me the message: Not formatted, format it now? I can not loose the info on this. Please, formatting is not an option. Is there anything else except recovery file programs i can use to sort out this problem?
