corrupted file structure

I have my part of system file structure corrupted after installation of a
new harddisk. The computer fails to boot up due to some files are lost. Now,
I have re-installed the Windows XP into the new harddisk instead. The
computer now can boot up. However, I found some of the important files in
the original harddisk is missing.

Are there any possible ways for me to recover the files?

Willit,

Thanks for your advice. But I am not too sure if this helps me to solve my
problem or not.

I did have mount the old one as a slave (and the new one as master) when I
re-install the Windows XP. However, what I found is that I don't even see
those missing files or folders from the file explorer. I suspect that the
files were lost when the Windows XP crushes. (when the system crushes, the
OS tries to run chkdsk but everytime, the chkdsk stops and the system
reboots in the middle of the chkdsk.That's why i need to re-install the
Windows XP into the new harddisk)

Are there still any way to recover these lost files?

Regards,
Thomas
