So I'm running Windows 8.1 and was in the midst of possibly retrieving data from a possible corrupted SD Card, via chkdsk. I don't remember the exact percentage it had left, but I do remember that things seemed to going alright, as it made it to Stage 5 and had about 34 minutes to go. I decided to lay down for a nap while it continued, only to wake up about two hours later and discover that the power to my living room was out (and strangely only the living room, which is where the computer is located). After resetting the circuit breaker and getting my power back, I attempted to try to the ckdsk again, only now it's unresponsive when I do so.

It's been like that for about 15 minutes after hitting enter, whereas earlier it gave me a message about what type of drive it was ("This type of the file system is NTFS") almost immediately. Now it isn't doing anything. I'm not sure if it's actually trying to do something or it has just stopped. But I am fairly certain that this unexpected outage may have interrupted the Stage 5 before it was finished. I don't know for sure, all I know is that when I finally booted my PC back up, I still was unable to access the contents of the SD Card, and I had to completely log in from scratch (sometimes I'm lucky enough to have the computer simply go into sleep mode if something like this happens, but not this time) and now I fear that more damage has been done this SD Card. The problem is I can't remember what all was on this card, as it's been in my phone for awhile as extra storage for my apps. I just don't want to format it, if there was more on it. But now I can't even get back to where I was, regarding the chkdsk. Any ideas or suggestions? Is it possible to run chkdsk a second time? What type of damage is done by interrupting a Stage 5? Forgive me if this is the wrong section.
