I have two harddrives, one for the operating system, the second harddrive holds video files (avi), sound files (wave), and other types of files like Premiere projects, Photoshop projects, etc....

During defragmenting the second drive, Defrag began "not responding". The computer was frozen and I did a hard shut-down (I held the power button until the computer shut off.) When I restarted the computer and tried to Defrag again, Windows would not allow this until I did some action (I cannot remember exactly what is was, but it was required to do it). This action required I restart the computer. Anyway, now all the files are corrupted.

Can these files be restored?
