My expert diagnosis is there is an imminent failure. I think you should back up your files.

Too late. The fucker died. All my music is on it and possibly lost.

FUCK!!

Protein. :cry:

RAID is your friend for important files. Lesson learned.

Buy two drives and mirror one with the other, it worked for me -- though nowhere near as smoothly as I'd planned.

I guess you now know the importance of a backup? How many mp3's?

Can you take your dead drive over to a friends house and see what is accessable on the drive from his machine?

I don't care about the mp3s. It's three years of creative output all gone. All MY music. Fucking shitter. Some of the tracks were really, really good.

i doubt the contents are irreversibly lost - there are any firms who specialise in data retrieval from fucked hard drives.
It might cost you some bucks, but now that you're a famous millionaire that won't be a problem.

Yeah, you're right, if I see some money in the near future I will see if I can get a specialist to retreive the data.

Didn't mister Gandertak lose his HD with all his work a while back? he mentioned some magic programme he used to get to his data.

Some money? They tend to have a flat fee and then they can throw in additional cost depending on how hard it is to recover the data. It is around 300 IIRC .Iit has been awhile though since I've looked at disaster recovery prices, DS could probably say better since he works for NASA. :)
