You require a Data Recovery Application for this

The problem here is most likely that the Master Boot Record got corrupted with the power cut. You need to rebuild this to get at your Data now.

I have no personal experience with this particular application but Seagate Recommend

It is a fairly cheap alternative to On Track's Recovery Option but I have no idea of how well it works. On the other hand the On Track product works a treat but it's considerably more expensive.

There are several other possible options but here you require something to Rebuild the Partition Tables as apposed to recovering the Data here is a list of the better known Applications used to recover data

While the last 2 are from the same company they are very different products. Win Hex should only be considered foe use by someone who knows Hex Inside Out while Davory is a great cheap General Purpose Application.

Personally I prefer the On Track Option but it's anything but cheap. However because I use this type of software a lot it's paid for itself many times over by now, for a cheaper option Spin Rite from Gibson Research or Stella have both very good reputations by other TR members.

The free version is fully function, it just runs at a slower speed when retreiving the data.
