defrag did you use? Sounds like a file might have been left open when you took the hit. If your using a third-party degragmenter, reinstall the software and try it again. If you were running XP's defrag run a chkdsk on the drive and see if that helps.
and life goes on...
As far as I know, everything is fine with my pc(no viruses or anything like that). At any rate, I was defragging and and the power cut off, maybe a power surge, everything seems fine, but i cant defrag now through my normal methods and I get a message that defrag cant be opened. As far as I can see nothing else is wrong but any help would be most welcome.
