Discovered my portable HDD with my 3DS and MAME stuff, and iTunes library on it took a dump. Literally spent WEEKS reading files from it, saving as much as I could. Got tired of it and tore it apart for the magnets.
I get home, and notice I'm missing a drive... (not yet sure if it's bad since I've been checking them one by one with a USB cradle on my laptop) so I try to reboot. Now my computer doesn't boot! I had just installed new software so I figured, well, time to put Acronis to good use!
Now, I find that the HDD with ALL of my games on it (MAME/SOFTWARE LISTS/PC games, ETC...) is toast! AAAND it also has my fU@$%@$ c:\ backups on it too!
I am so screwed. <500GB limit per month on my downloads for this drive.
I will be the last person to die in my lifetime.
