Hi,

My friend had an HP who's mobo failed, and there are some very important files taht are needed whihc are on that hard drive. the problem is that the data seems to be corrupted. I ahve never seen anything like this before. I am attatching a screen shot of what the files on the had drive looks like. Anyone have any ideas of how to salvage the date if it is possible?

Curious, how is he now viewing this data, did he take out the harddrive and is running it from an external harddrive box or as slave in another comp or has the original mobo sprung back to life and we are seeing the stuff form a normal boot up.

I am not sure here, but with an unimportant file what happens if he copies it from slave to master. Also, are we only talking about fonts here, are there any other visible effects here. Also, how did the mobo fial?
