i installed CCC 10.5 and it gave the same error message. and earlier i tried rolling back drivers and it didnt work on 10.6. and i installed 10.5 for the first time and it was not possible to roll back because i got the message "no driver files have been backed up for this device, and then advices me to do useless troubleshooting"
Hey stupid question, you ever try a restore point. Yeah seems to stupid to say but what do you have to loose. What ever your computer was doing before the power went out, it was in the middle of it. So just reset it. Do a system restore before the power went out.
