what happens to MS-Access (Office suite) transactions if sudden disk failure..

Last Modified: 2016-08-08
if a sudden disk failure happens, how  does MS-Access (Office suite) handle the files in the log (those who were in transaction.. but may not have committed)

I was able to restore the files from a failed disk.. but see that the last days transactions are not there to be seen.. hence the question.

this is windows xp /access 2002
