Darn hard drive

Friday, August 28, 2009

Well, this really has nothing to do with weight loss unless you are focusing on stress levels. My external hard drive took a plunge off the desk and now refuses to work. I have lost everything, I had all my important information on that hard drive as well as all my photographs and stuff, just so much and it is all gone. I should be sleeping right now but I am so upset that I can't sleep, fortunately I have not turned to food, course we are at the end of the month and we really don't have much for food around here right now anyway which is good for now. I am so frustrated, all my pictures, all my school work, all my personal information, I bought the external hard drive so that I would have a back up of all my stuff in case something happened to my computer, I never thought that I could lose the hard drive and so I didn't back that up, I have very little on my computer, nothing that is really important anyway, it is all gone. Sigh, well I guess I will be more careful next time, right, maybe have two external hard drives? lol, ya right! can't afford food, how would I be able to afford to even replace this hard drive? Well, I can see that my ranting is not getting any better, but I guess I do feel better yelling at my computer and hard drive and ranting on here, I never intended to use this site for this but I guess that is part of life, poor me, what to do?
Well enough of that, it is what it is, all I can do is try to some how recover what ever it is that I have lost. I won't be able to get back 3 years of photography, nor will I be able to get back 6 years of pictures of my daughter as she is growing up. Can I throw the hard drive through the window now? Can I beat it up with a bat, will have to find one first. Can I boil it in oil and make it give up all its secrets? Ha Ha, I know, I will put it on the train tracks and watch while the train runs it over, that will teach it to die on me, what a bother, what a pain, what a waist, maybe I will dissect it to see what makes it tick, I like taking things apart, and what will it hurt, it just makes a funny clicking noise for a few minutes and then is silent, it can't even make a loud ratteling, groaning, high pitched wine, just a little clicking noise and then nothing. NOTHING! grrrrrrrr
OK, enough already, I need to think about sleep, and maybe tomorrow I can think of something more creative to do with this insolent little hard drive.
Good night

    ups, im really sorry to read this, :(

    Maybe something just got unplugged on the inside and it can work with a new HD case or something? I would ask a tech or your average geeky guy :) IF it cannot be done, try not to think about it, though, since when somehting has no solution, the sooner you get pass the stress the better!

    I really feel for you. I had a computer just die. Tech said hard died. I lost whatever I had. I put a new harddrive in and the computer still wasn't the same. They were able to get a few things off my drive.

    Don't destroy the drive, hold on to it until you can afford to take it to a computer shop. They might be able to salvage something.
