I have an old Pentium notebook. Yesterday, I noticed that there were some problems in one of the directories on the C: partition - there were subdirectories in that directory with ascii characters that weren't there before, and some of the files in that directory were gone. However, everything else was working fine. When I restarted the computer, it wouldn't boot off the hard drive anymore, and when I booted off a floppy, a dir listing showed that there was nothing in the drive. When I tried Scandisk, it said something about how it would have to dump all the data into FILExxxx.CHK files.
Does anyone know if it is possible to recover the directory tree and the files in their original form instead of having to go through all the FILExxxx.CHK files?
Thanks very much
