teach me to interrupt Partition Magic again time to start downloading it all over ...
ouch i felt stupid when my 300GB anime hdd died on me. i had the feeling it was about to die but i put off moving the crap to another drive until it was to late. but yeah... nicee move
wow dude that had to suck ass
Been meaning to setup a raid5 array to prevent stuff like this
it was really weird. I had it all stored on a RAID 0 array that I wasn't even messing with. Screwing up my other drive somehow screwed up the RAID and ... the rest is history.
I wouldnt do RAID0 for mass storage, each drive in the array increases the chances of failure and if 1 drive fails the data for the whole array is lost. RAID0 is meant for performance on loading things (programs, games, page file, swap files).
RAID5 requires atleast 3 drives and if 1 drive fails you can replace it and rebuild the array and still have all your data.
yeah I know. this isn't really critical data though so I'm not that concerned
if you haven't started to overwrite that drive i can get the data back for you
I haven't yet. I tried GetDataBack but all the files were corrupted or something - it found a lot of the video files but none of them would play.
I used a program called Restoration. A bit weird using it but it works like a charm. Just search for it on google
