How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy


So, we had yet another power blink this morning. These things happen pretty much every other day. This time however, it decided to happen and cause my D: drive to get fuxxored. Hardcore fuxxored. Most of the data on the drive I can't get at. The chkdsk utility can't cope with the extent of the damage.

Anyone? Suggestions? It's an NTFS drive, made by Maxtor. If anyone knows of any recovery tools that aren't stupid trials that refuse to recover any files large than 64k, let me know. Any disk repair utilities that I should try, etc. I'm getting desperate; that drive had most of my programs and all of my photographs and artwork.
