    Data gain after power outage?

    Just lol. Power went out and came back after 5 mins. and at boot Windows wanted to scan & repair C:, I let it (was fast due to SSD). After that, in the desktop I saw a intact personal text file from 2017 October.

    Just how?

    edit: now I'm thinking maybe that file was considered as corrupted when deleted by me and system repair revived it somehow with shadow copies or even temporary copies like when you delete files on your external drive then unplug it without final erasing, then plug it back after a while only to see drive needs repair.
