Unhappy Re: power failure durning re-installititon

ok i think this is the right place to post this problem sorry for the double post.

comp.

compaq 1923wm
media center edition
version 2002
service pack 3
amd athlon 64 processor
3500+
991 MHz,488MB of ram

first i have multiple external hard drives
i swap them around continiously all of them pretty full
various sizes from 8 gb to 1000 gb

while one was re-installing the power cord got disconnected durning the install process!

first i could not get any letter assigned, after researching on your forum and unistalling it disconnecting all cables switching usb ports re-installed
showed up in disk manage but still no letter trying all again showed up temp. but with a red circle and a question mark

closed windows explorer
and re-opened it no drive

so i tryed all again this time with disc manager open and shows up every where

now my problem is ZERO bytes used
ZERO bytes free

is there any way to save my 160 gb of saved data??

Plug each drive in individually and try to see if they show up, delete the device from the device manager and reinstall the driver. Otherwise use a registry utility to clean out bad entries.

You could also reformat your drives, but that erases everything off of it and pretty much restores it back to it's original state
