HD Delema Part 2

dscf0611.jpg

After trying to find help here, I had no choice but to send the drive to the states.

I sent the HD to DriveSavers, because it seemed they were my only hope. After sending the drive through fed-ex, they contacted me telling me they recieved it.

Then a couple of hours later they contacted me, asking me to call them. So I did, i was hoping for good news and the gentlement I spoke to sounded like he had bad news. When he was talking to me it sounded as if he wanted to tell me someone died, but the hope of getting my information back was totally lost. The feeling really sucked, that I lost a lot of photos, music, and video. But Mostly its the photos that I lost that are annoying me. But I have learned to back-up everything! And I will! At least I know some places that I could get some of the pictures but not everything.

Well a lot has been lost, but lesson learned.

Now Im back to square one for a bit. Im happy I found a good amount of music on my mp3 player, and I have a good amount of music on my laptop. Im also going to ask my friend to burn his music to a DVD and send it to me from the states, because we have the same amount and same taste. And then I am downloading huge amounts from Torrent at this point. About 60 – 70 GBs worth of anime, and a couple of GBs worth of new tv shows. The one thing that I cant recover is pictures of my family and friends. But at least I have some copies of it, so its not all lost, but still extremely frustrating.

  1. Allah yir7am your HD!

    I know what you are going through! It happened to me too!

  2. Thats a lot, sorry to hear about the loss of data. I know it can be quite frustrating. A fresh start is always good. Now thats a LOT of anime.. *drools*

  3. what about sending the drive to another place, maybe someone else can retreive info from it?

  4. I can understand how you feel….its really bad…I backup my stuff onto DVDs…but not really easy as I have more than 60 GB of data and I only backup the most important items every other month…..I have an OLD dlt autoloader in office and I am planning to use that at home as a backup soltuion…let see..

  5. Stallion: yeah it sucked!

    Transparently: loool! I know! hehehe! At least Im finding some stuff here and there hidden in my external HD! Which is making me happy!

    Mark: I sent it to other places and nobody could do anything!

    CyberRowdy: I have a good backup solution now, but it came a few days too late.. the funny part is I was going to backup everything to that drive! hehe! And I know what you mean about seeding! hahaha!

  6. I know your feeling, but oh well, what I am sad about most is the pictures that I had off of my phone, I formatted my phone a while back so I backed up all the images onto my Powerbook and they are now gone I guess ;/

  7. Bring over an external harddrive .. I can fill it with music/tv/movies.

  8. Jacqui: yeah I know what you mean.. losign pictures is the worst!

    K: I will do that! Hopefully when things calm down this first week of Ramadan!

  9. K: holy crap! Thats a huge list! Damn thats good! I will try it when I get home! I have two computers, and I have tried to configure port forwarding in the router itself. But Im not sure if its working. I also have Zonealarm on. And I have portforwarding setup for that too. I think its the router though, because I have used another routher when I was in the UK and I setup the ports in Zonealarm and I was getting great speads on a 1MB connection.

  10. Turn on uPnP on the router and in azureus .. it automatically opens the ports and forwards them when you need it to. I have my house set up that way so that i don’t block any of the other pcs from getting speeds.

  11. K: I have uPnP on in Azureus! Im telling you! Its the Linksys router! Azureus specifically mentions the model I have, that it has problems with Azureus! And it jams up after a couple of hours of usage!
