    When i switched on my laptop(sony vaio) ,it didnt work and the recovery part showed up

    I tried rescuing my files by connecting it to a hardrive but its not transferring the data!
    Can i just restart my laptop by directly pressing the power button??

    There is a risk with powering it down manually but in this case, it seems like you have little choice.

    I'd suggest to boot into Linux and see if you can try and recover data there.
