Looks like I can recover *some of that drive, including roughly 80% of MAME stuff (not necessarily software list stuff) and just about all of my personal pictures. I HAD NO BACKUP OF THOSE Pics 😵
But it turns out that I have another dead drive. It is COMPLETELY dead to the point that my computer won't even boot with it plugged in... and it had all of my porn, tv shows, and software downloads 💀
I will be the last person to die in my lifetime.
