Starcraft 2 is the fucking tits. The campaigns are actually legit for once. (compared to other similar games)

I am just going to take the harddrive to a computer repair place and see if there is anything they can do to repair it. If not. Fuck it. I guess I will just have to rebuild my media library :sad:

It's going to be sad replacing 460GB worth of media

Put it in the freezer for a few hours. Wrap it in a paper towel and then in a few ziplock baggies and let it sit.

And yes I'm being serious, its helped me recover my filed several times from damaged harddrives.

This scares me. I've got a 500gb drive full of movies/tv shows...IDK wtf I'd do if it broke. Certainly not pay for cable...:facepalm:

I wish there were DVDs that held huge amounts of data so I could back up all my shit and not use 1000 discs.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

It's happened to me before. When I was in my teen years I had gigs upon gigs of obscure music that I'll probably never be able to find again, TV shows, movies, games, etc.

Harddrive took a crap on me and I lost it all.

Moral of the story: Back-ups exist for a reason.

Get a harddrive and hook it up in a RAID config, external harddrive, or a blue ray writer. Either way its gonna be fifty - hundred or more bucks to get a proper back-up.

Come on guys. We are all in our 20's. We should know what to do with a hard drive failure. We should know to back up, recover, and diagnose hard drives.

Ras - they've recently released solid-state drives which are non-mechanical, flash-based drives. Which means they are less prone to drive failures, unlike the ancient HD's

Solid State interest me greatly, I'd want to see them in larger sizes for a better price in the future.

I'd like a combination of SSD and HDD drives on my next PC.

The drive at least stays powered on now. But any time you try to access something it automatically freezes it

Not sure if it is even fixable.

Just goes to "not responding"

Prior to showing up it usually takes several boots in order to stay powered. But it is staying powered. Just wont let me access anything on the drive or open it.

Defragging with todays newer computers is easy shit compared with what it used to be like.

I can defrag a disk in 30 minutes instead of 6 hours now.
