Power outage = Computer suicide

Over the weekend there has been a power outage at the companys location.

I recognized that this morning when I had to re-logon on my two Windows-stations and my Linux-station was completely down.

While the Linux and one Windows computer got up again without problems my working Windows computer spit out lots of filesystem problems and unknown errors (during chkdisk???).
Of course it was my main Windows computer.

Surprisingly I got a new HDD for backup almost without problems and within 30 minutes. Now I'm installing Win2k again on it and then I'll back up everything what's left from the old HDD before secure erasing and giving it back.

Again, almost a whole day just setting up computer because of power fluctuances.
