I am not sure if it is working correctly. I had a power interruption while MS updates were occuring, although the pc had been doing this for over 18 hours so I am assuming there was already a problem. The HDD would not boot after this happened so I got the recovery CDs. I went to the system repair: restore and it found two restore points so I picked the older one, just to be safe. It supposedly is recovering to a restore point but I don't see any activity and has been well over an hour since it started. Is there a way I can see any activity and know that it is doing what I want it to do? It was seeing my C: drive and another drive just titled "data drive" or something like that which I am assuming is my D:, or recovery partition. If I do get frustrated and there is way to stop it with doing no harm, Should I return and try finding restore shots from that drive? I really am new to this and am trying my very best to retrieve my hard drive so that I lose as little as possible.
