Catastrophic Technical Difficulties..

by
So... My previously announced plans for commissions, etc.. are on hold for at least a couple weeks, possibly a month or more..

A week or two ago.. Honestly I can't even remember anymore at this point..
My PC suffered a catastrophic drive failure.. The storage drive basically had a stroke and the I/O errors it started throwing totally corrupted the boot partition on the SSD containing Windows..

It took me and my fiance several days to diagnose the problem and get it working again.. In the end Windows and it's software installations were unsalvagable and I've had to reinstall everything..
But.. That's not the big problem...

The storage drive is.. severely.. damaged..
As in, I'm amazed the disk even still spins...
So at the moment my desktop PC is occupied running low level data recovery to a new drive and I'm both hoping what I get out of it isn't garbage and that the drive even keeps working until it's finished..
As I type this it's been running for about 4 days and has recovered 307GB out of approximately 1.4TB, so.. fingers crossed...

I'm seriously hoping this works, because my most recent surviving backup... Is nearly 2 years old, so... That's a lot of stuff I'm losing..
And if I can't recover my files there will be several projects I was working on that will just straight up not exist anymore..

At the moment I'm up and running on an old salavaged laptop I've managed to rework and get running at acceptable speed.
But because of hardware limitations and my desk being covered in computer parts, my ability to get any work done has taken a hit...
So, it'll be a little bit before I can do what I was originally planning..

Nooooooooo! Data loss is horrible! PCs should be designed, that they save data into a cloud drive BEFORE the hdd/sdd goes into Hardware Heaven! D:

I feel your pain. Can I offer you 3 pieces of non-functional 1TByte HDDs full of Lost Dreams and Hopes??? Yeah, I was hurt too. Lets cry together, bunny buddy! =T_T=

It's soooo not fun.. @-@
I've been running a data recovery program on the drive since I posted this journal...
Still not done, still don't know if it's going to yield any results..

It's running non-stop for one month long????? Your nudes aren't that much worth...are they?
Well, I hope you are able to save anything high in value!

I had luck with one of my drives: It was plugged in, and suddenly it resurrected itself. I plugged in an usb storage hdd, and managed to copy over everything. At 96% my PC sent me all kinds of messages, that that drive will fail critically. I was like "Oh really? You don't say?" Managed to save all the...movies, it was my film storage. Still...it was a welcomed thing to happen. I'll give it a worthy dissection and will make decoration out of it's remains...Sadly, the porn stash and game/save files hdds are dead as of yet. Big loss...

Patient...or fanatic and maybe borderline lunatic?
Patience is a good dragon bunny virtue! ☺
