I can guarantee you that it's true. Right now below my feets there's 2 HDDs that suffered from this before. Works lost, Music lost, Movie lost, everything lost. I lost motivation to touch my PC (although it worked) for a week. However as soon as I install new OS, new applications, new configs, I come to new spirit like finding new life and start to code something again. Yes it should be avoided but when it happens, think positive.

ありがとうございます。

Legal documents and stuff is all on paper and I didn´t have any other important documents on it (I bought it 2 days before I went to Japan), so that´s no problem. Rewriting the game I had in progress is also only gonna take a fraction of the time it took until now... The only thing I´ve really lost is time. I had thousands of hours worths of code, game saves and funny 4chan pictures on that HD (and, well, a 2TB hard drive that´s a lot more expensive now after the price boom). The other 800GBs were just padding, definitely not anime.

Ugh. So it might take a month to rewrite the game I was working on, but you know how you start doubting your own ideas after having a long time to think them through. I have a hard time keeping my motivation up as it is, I don´t need this kind of blow...

But it´s just so unfair! People are abusing their hard drives in ways I´d never imagine! At least I had everything important on both my computer and my external HD! What are the chances of BOTH breaking down at the same time?!

I called ASUS support today. They still have my computer, and considering how slow they have been I´m hoping they haven´t formatted the drive for testing yet, so they might be nice enough to just zip my workspace folder and mail it to me. They didn´t have an English speaking person in today though, so they told me to call back tomorrow. I really can´t explain all the circumstances around this in Japanese... ._.

I feel pretty much like that at the moment...

So, lesson of the day: Don´t take 4 hour walks in Converse shoes. My feet hurts. xd

Now if you´ll excuse me I´ve got an Apple Store to turn upside-down.

Meh, Apple store trip cancelled. 5 minutes after I posted that I heard thunder followed by a ridiculously loud sound of rain on the roof.

Me: "I´m going out!"
God: "Oh, no, you´re not."

I guess this is what´s called the rain period...

Seems you're overdosed of getting trolled. Sometimes it not works as it look. You didn't put your HDD next to refrigerator, AC turbine or 100 Mwatt amplified speakers right?

Yeah, I feel kind of trolled. Concerning the hard drive, it was stored in a wooden cupboard around 3 meters away from the nearest electrical device (with the nearest one being a light bulb). I don´t have a single magnet in my room either. From the errors I got I´m pretty sure it´s a mechanical problem that occured while I brought it to my friend´s place. It was wrapped in a blanket in a computer bag and couldn´t move around. Sigh.

While professional HDD recovery will set you back several hundred, I had good results with off-the-shelf HDD recovery tools for only about £50. It'd be worth looking into if you have data that's not super critical but would be super annoying if you lost it.

Obviously don't go this route if you want to try a professional recovery, as it'll likely hose any chances of that.

Would that be some kind of physical tool (lol, as if) or just a non-free program? For now I think I´m just gonna call ASUS tomorrow (still a super slim chance there) and then wait for my laptop so I can actually do stuff with that stupid HD.

It was just a commercial bit of software that'd run some kind of super low-level scan of the disk and try and piece together files from the fragments it could find. Results are probably hugely variable depending on exactly *how* your HDD got hosed, but it picked up a whole bunch of stuff after chdsk wasn't able to.

I'd give you a link, but it was many years ago so I have no idea what it was called I'm afraid. I'm sure there's equivalent ones out there.

What are the chances of BOTH breaking down at the same time?!
I've had 2 servers breaking down on me, in a timespan of a couple of hours, they were using eachother for backups. Since then, I always have 3 copies of data. Two is for n00bs.

The same law predicts all 3 of your servers breaking down simultaneously... then what? :L
Well, it's still better and cheaper than the Cloud. All those files lost inside megaupload...

Let's assume that the odds that your server breaks down on day X is 1/1'000

Two servers breaking down on day X, results in a chance of 1/1'000'000
Three servers breaking down on day X, results in a chance of 1/1'000'000'000

I'm comfortable with the odds of three servers breaking down on the same day.

It's a lot more risky to cross a busy road, and I still do it.

I hope the fact that it took them over 4 weeks to repair my computer is enough trolling for them. -_-´
I do however need a new backup hard drive (or fifty-eleven, considering that Murphy guy). Any tips? Needs to be at least 1 TB and I have no need at all for more than 2 TB. Is it a good idea to buy a case for internal hard drives instead?

Yeah, I would choose Western Digital, but their drives are still expensive
like 150 $ for 1 TB

But... In all honesty, the stuff that you really need to backup isnt that big
if you only backup things that you made yourself, at least for me, it should fit in 5-20GB

It´s not 100% for backup. I also offload unimportant stuff that doesn´t fit on my laptop´s harddrive too, which is why I want a larger one. My Java stuff is only a few MBs, might be a GB or so with some 3D models and other bigger game related files...

My broken hard drive is a WD one... Not too keen on getting a new identical one... >_>

haha yeah
I mean its often like this... you just never know with technology

I used a SSD in my desktop PC. After 18 months it just stopped working, just like that
and it was Corsair and all

you just never know
luckily amazon agreed to pay me back full price, which is awesome after 18 months of use

18 months? Did you find out what was wrong with it? What were you doing with it? 18 months ago SSD's were quite small, how many GB was it? Either way those things should have 10+ years at least and be more secure than conventional HD's, even though they have that "limit".
