Today = not of the good

February 17th, 2007 (02:52 am)

Remember that hard drive crash a few months back? The one that wiped out all My Documents stuff for the last few years? Thankfully My Music and other stuff all survived on a separate drive, so I settled down to recreating as much as I could on that drive. You can see where this is going, can't you?

Yup, that drive went tonight. Totally.

Bye-bye music, movies, tv episodes and all my new and recovered fic writings.

I knew I should have stayed in bed today. :(

(Dw) Awww... fuck - by me

I bought a program that retrieves info on corrupt drives... because that happened to me... if I tried to find a way to yousendit.com or something, would that help?

One of the best disk recovery tools out there is SpinRite from http://www.grc.com/

It's not exactly cheap, at 80 bucks US, but if the data is valuable to you, it may well be worth it. It's very good at saving otherwise dead drives.

Will we be saving important stuff to CD or DVD from now on? ;)
