You should start packing a bag and find out a good country to escape to that doesn't extradite for child porn.

Not the best news. That ID tag is curious. At least, I think that's what it is. Two things.

One: You're never supposed to turn off a machine while it's in upgrade. I have seen an upgrade take an hour, and sometimes your machine looks hung. Don't turn it off if you ever think that might be what's going on. Next reboot you should get diagnostics automatically. That might tell you what's going on.

Two: If you can't salvage the HD, yYou can get a new one for $40. There's a site where you can download windows which will recognize your machine so you won't be charged. You will likely be able to hook your hard drive to an external unit which will allow you to download most of the files from it. You might have to freeze it in a zip loc bag.

I've used this power source in the past. https://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-Drive-Adapter-Converter-External/dp/B00BIE996S/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=external+hard+drive+power+supply&qid=1599955399&sr=8-5

There might be something better now that Externals are USB powered.

I have an external HD that I use for backups on my work folders, goes back around 14 years or something like that.

My last backup was around 3, maybe 4 weeks ago & I obviously have some more recent stuff I need to recover.

Gonna try a Win 10 safe mode thing & see what happens with that... flying the Space Shuttle without any actual training.

This thread will walk you thru the process

btw, you can use robocopy thru task scheduler to backup everything important on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. You never have to worry bout losing your data again - until your external goes out.
