I hope its good news about your drive Dallan.

Dimitri,
Instead of backing up like that, I usually just install a new drive and transfer the immediately required files across.
Then I retire the hard drive complete with data in it, to be revived should the occasion required.

Sorry to hear of your problem, but been there, got the t-shirt and video. There are a few programs that will "Ghost" your HD to a back up HD.. I personally use Acronis and weekly backup to a secondary HD. Any failure and it will totally resore my data, even to a new HD, to, as it it was. Surely there are some computer engineers in the forum who can suggest on the subject.

Thanks Vint, still for most its just May 2-4 ... 2-4 refering to our nickname for a case of 24 of beer. IE, its the first long weekend in decent weather after winter, so its party time. Laughing

The data recovery place (http://www.essdatarecovery.com), just called my wife and informed her they had 100% complete data recovery on the drive. Not sure what the total bill will be yet.

They had to disassemble and rebuild the drive before they got it operational enough to read data. Cool stuff.

Did you try the old freezer trick? Put the drive in the freezer overnight and reinstall it and see if it will boot up. It worked for me when I had my last drive failure.

No, the circuit board burned up due to a power spike, the Motor control chip litterally caught on fire and exploded. Freezer trick can sometimes help some drives by shrinking some parts and getting things to move again, but due the physical damage I had to the controller board, nothing was going to work without repairs starting there.

Thats awesome Dallan....lets hope the bill ain't though mate.

Never heard of the "freezer trick". I still have my dead HDD sitting in my cupboard...might just have to try that idea.

Cheers, Vince

Dallan,
With all your back-ups how did you lose PB ver.II?
Is your back-up procedure a new practice?
I back most of my stuff to individual DVD's - try to keep them current but I am not always 100%. It has been a long time since I lost data due to HD crash but I have had it happen many times in the last 36 years - It used to be quite common to lose a HD after a year or two of service. They last a lot longer than they used to.
