At least my PC seems to have it... While I was publicly ranting and thinking about a new Windows Media Edition today, my main PC (I
used to write the previous 2 articles) died! :cry:
But not the PC itself died, no it's more perfidy... The PC decided to kill the "My Documents" hard drive which includes more or less all documents, photos, the complete web site (which is mirrored here on the web server -makes sense, eh?), my PST files for Outlook, my downloads - so more or less everything which isn't
a program... 8O This little bastard... ;-) Okay, my PC has feelings - do you hear it HP - my HP Pavilion Desktop PC has feelings but I have feeling too... Argh... :x
Thanks to Carlo right now I'm in the recovering phase which means I
scan the faulty hard drive (which is - according to the fresh Windows XP setup -
empty and not formatted) and "GetDataBack"
already founds 8997 files and a lot of bad sectors... :-(
Seems I have to buy a copy of GetDataBack tomorrow because the free version only scans your HDD but
doesn't recover the found files... What a bad evening... But thankfully I have a
copy of the most important files (including my Outlook PST) on the Sony Notebook
I'm currently using to write this article...
"Oh my dear Sony Notebook: have I told you today how much I love you, that I can't live without you!?" (Just to
make sure he isn't cracking up also now - haven't told him that for a long
time... ;-) )
