[QUOTE=Duckie;35658121]I've just lost 300GB of pictures that I've taken since I got my DSLR. Everything's gone. :C[/QUOTE] What happened mate? :(
that sucks man. it's one of my biggest fears; I dump all my photos onto an external hd, and if it were to fail, I'd lose everything.
It just died, the platter isn't spinning, no motion or sound at all coming from it. And it was a Seagate. This was the worst week because it died, and then to top it off I had 3 projects to hand in on Monday, and now I have to do them all today and tomorrow. Fuck my life, added to the frustration is me having woman issues. Why must I be such a fucking wuss at times. Oh well. Thanks for the feels, doods. :)

And retrieving the platter from one to another would be a waste of time imo.
yeah but if it work at least you'd have your photo collection back
Yeah you should try contacting some data recovery service, or Seagate if your HD is still in warranty and it covers data recovery from faulty drives. Don't give up, man, I'd be running around from one place to another with the thing if that happened to me.
Okay, so I've gotten somewhere and gained 500GB of space, I tried using a data recovery tool, but all it could gather was corrupted files etc. I've also asked my brother if he could help me with this, so Imma see what happens :) Thanks for all the helps guys :D
I really think you should go to a professional service if you have the money, the one time I tried recovering data myself not only did I not get any results but I also corrupted the data forever and couldn't recover it.
If you can manage to connect to the drive first thing you should do is image the drive if you're gonna do this without professional help. Once you image the drive you can try all sorts of recovery methods non-destructively to the image until you can get some sort of files out of it. Cause the more you use the drive the more files may get corrupt or overwritten by hard-drive - computer operations.

buying a videocamera is one of the things you don't do in a rush
Do it in 1080p stereo please.
We aren't shooting a porn lol.
I still find it funny that I can search on Youtube and find a video of Pickwickian's dad singing in Les Mis :v: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urxk4mveLCw[/media]
or discussing deep social issues such as where to put shoes. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SpR3ZyMhEM[/media]
I thought all brits did that
I was surprised at how accurate the new Sherlock Holmes represents modern England!
[QUOTE=latin_geek;35684292]I thought all brits did that[/QUOTE] My dad's not a Brit.
He has a brit accent therefore brit
But he doesn't have a british accent.
I think we know your father better than you pickwickian
So, um... He's an actor. If you've heard him with a British accent it's because he's... What's the word... Acting?
in the second video he has a very heavy australian accent? doesn't sound british at all!
