I think I'm going to be sick...
Hard drive failure...

Luckily I did back up in July so I at least have my photograhs from Japan. My first reaction was one of relief that I had at saved those irreplaceable photos.

Then I remembered that my back-up was done in July of 2002, so I don't have any of the photographs of the cats (except for those I have on my webpage so that they could be linked in livejournal).

I also lost several personal journal entries, conversations, passwords, tax documents, and personal sentimental things that I really should have backed-up since July.

I'm going to go vacuum something.

I don't want to instill false hope in you, but there's a tool called R-studio on www.download.com that has worked well for recovering data from seemingly dead hard drives. It's only a demo and limited in how big the files it can recover, but I have access to the full version if you'd like me to look at that bad ol' drive of yours.

The read head is scratching the platter. To make matters worse, the drives are running in RAID 0. I can boot and somewhat read the disks, but since they are supposed to have multiple partitions and the partitions are not even recognized...and most boot and repair utilities will not even recognize the Epox Raid controller. So I can pull the whole package out and put it into another machine, but I don't hold much hope for that helping anything.

(My roommate, zordac, helped with a few technical terms.)

::laugh:: Thank you for making me smile.

But thank you also for wanting to help. I appreciate even the sentiment.
