Windows 7: Flooded apartment whoas.... :(

Flooded apartment whoas.... :(

Came home from work a couple days ago and my basment apartment was flooded. Unfortnatly my computer sits on the floor. The power supply and keybord got fried and somehow my "bootmgnt" got corrupted or lost and whatever i tried wouldn't bring it back. I reinstalled windows and 1 of my drives is no loger visible in "Explorer" but visible in disk manager. upon futher investigation i relized i didn't have any permission to the entire drive. I tried becomming the owner of the drive and then giving myself permision to it but i don't have the right to change anything. I seems like the drive is protected somehow and i don't know how to undo it. I made the user/comp names the same but to no avail. Somebody please help! I have 120Gig of music in there!
thank-you

BTW: I also tried sighning in as the Administrator and doing above metioned.
Edit: sorry i forgot to metion i have 2 160 gb drives in comp. C(40gb) & D(110gb) are on 1 drive and "storage" (150gb)is on second drive (which i have no permision to.)

If it's recognisable but won't mount that would suggest to me the disk has been damaged, usualy I'd say it's become corrupted but this time I'm going to go out on a limb and say physically damaged.

Try installing your drive in another PC if possible and see what it says then.

If your quick you can get Paragon partition manager for free from http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ and see what that has to say about your drive.

Very sorry to hear about that. My computer used to sit on the floor, but I got a small shoe rack which holds it about 8 inches off the floor in the event that I ever get some water in my basement. Might want to consider getting it a little bit off the floor in the future.

WHS is right, it works. It is a temporary solution, but it should be tried as a last resort.

I'm sure sorry to hear about your misfortune. That is awful. Flood cleanup is a bugger.

So if the HD is corrupted but not necessarily physically damaged you maybe can access windows from a live Ubuntu CD and extract what you need to a external HD. I would want to see what the partitions look like myself so I would use gparted in Ubuntu to see what is there.
