  1. Greetings guys.

    My C drive with Win XP pro crashed today and gives me blue screen saying "unmounted drive."

    When I boot and re-boot it tries to go in to windows and then the shows the Blue screen.
    Cannot go in the safe mode. same problem. I cannot format the drive as all my data is in there.

    Would highly appreciate if some one could assist me in restoring the drive as it was.
    This happened due to violent power fluctuation. I am in Tanzania.
