The information (files) the computers was working at the time may be lost. Other files status will depend on the computer condition:
If the hard drive crashed,the data file status is unknown depends on the Hard drive (how bad the HD has been damaged). All other hardware problem, you can ge the data files back.
Servers will be similar situation, most of the time the system crash is caused by the operating or network system. Files should be pretty safe.
