PostSubject: Hard Drive Caput   Tue 9 Jun 2015 - 22:47

So, my hard drive went to hell friday. Sad

Fortunaly i managed to at least save my modding work and my rfactor files, as well as some other important data of mine, but my system is basically dead now awaiting a clean install, while i am trying to salvage as much as i can from the rest... Crying or Very sad

I dont think i will be able to take part in the race tomorrow, and i will see what i can do to put this up to speed. I am on vacations this week, and i spend more time looking to a dark screen than when i am working... Rolling Eyes


I will invest some money to get some HDDs and build a raid setup. study

Aww that sucks :doh:

Yeah if you really care about this stuff, you should invest in multiple hard drives. If it's just modding and rF, it won't take that much space anyway nor cost an awful lot of money.

I currently have my work on 2 HDD, and plan to add a 3rd one, and even a 4th hard drive that will go to my parents' in case there's a fire or something :aie:

Tip that could be useful one day : I had once a hard drive that committed a suicide by jumping from my table... when I tried to start it, it did a tic tic tic and wouldn't start. Since it couldn't work any less than that, I tried to drop it on the couch : curiously, the 1.50 meter fall somehow fixed it :urgence:

That's really too bad.  Crying or Very sad  If you were in the states, I would point you in Tyler's direction. He builds great computers.

I will call that the JP solution :jp:

I already got some hard drives, i will have automatic backups to a dedicated one, and i will also study some online solutions, to the more sensitive things study
