Hard Drive Died

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 10:00 am

The post title says it all really.
My old PATA Maxtor 40Gb hard drive, which contained the Windows OS installation, Program Files, Outlook’s PST File, my Favourites etc. died late last night. I am currently in the process of installing and configuring everything onto my Christmas present – a 500Gb Seagate drive. I’m hoping to be able to recover the essential data I need from the drive later, and I had already taken the decision to keep all other data (My Documents, Downloads etc. etc.) on my other drives.
If you don’t see me online with IM apps etc., you know the reason why. I’ll post back once everything has settled down. Which may take a while, as downloading SP3 etc. on a little 128Kbit connection does take some time.
