I have an HP Pavillion laptop. Because it was becoming extremely slow, I decided to do a system restore. I used the HP restore program already installed when I bought the laptop. But while it was doing a backup onto an external harddrive, the computer froze. As it turns out, my harddrive failed - it was damaged. Now, on my external harddrive, I have about 14 GB of my files backed-up. But it ends in a .fbw extension. I understand that this is specific to the HP program. Does anyone know if and how I can access those files, in the hopes of recovering at least some of the data I lost? I should mention that I'm trying to recover the data on another non-HP computer (Windows XP), not the original HP laptop (Vista). The .exe file in the picture below was the HP Recovery program that's supposed to restore your backed-up data. I opened it, but it's been stuck at 0% with no progress: I'd appreciate any help.
