The Joy of Hard Drives

Sign in to follow this  


So my laptop hard drive has died, so I'm back on my old desktop. This wouldn't bother me so much if the stupid thing hadn't died in the middle of a backup; which corrupted the backup hard drive as well. I managed to salvage data for the most important things for work and the like; but I seem to have lost both the latest version of Dodecahellspawn and the Incredible Edible Cow, as well as a lot of application settings like my Firefox bookmarks and so on. This annoys me greatly.

I'll probably get a replacment drive for the laptop sometime after Christmas. For some odd reason prices seem to drop a lot around that time of the year.

Damn - that's got to be annoying.

I'm really paranoid about backing up all my data, but I usually only go for the data section of my disks. Last major crash I had took about 3-4 days of solid work to get everything re-installed and working how I liked it [headshake]

January sales are always good for picking up cheap stuff [grin]
