I've never had a computer problem make me sick... today I lost an 80 gig hard drive with my entire photography portfolio on it... the -day- I plugged in a new 250 gig external drive to back it up. I have 5 years worth of photography on the drive... priceless pictures of the first 2 years of my relationship with Joy, all of my professional portfolio, and pictures of friends and family (some now dead) I can't believe the drive died the -day- I was about to back it up. It is an 80 gig western digital caviar drive, partitioned into 4 disks, all NTFS. The drive now clicks when trying to seek on the platters. I tried to access it in the orignal computer, and in an external enclosure. Both cause the click of death. I didn't push my luck for fear of further damaging the drive. What are my options? I don't really have the money to pay $1000 for a data recovery specialist... but I'll scrape the money together to save these photos. Some of them are absolutely priceless to me... I don't want to lose pictures of those first few months with Joy. Help me out guys. ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
