Just lost hundreds of .flac songs from a Windows error......

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Man this sucks... Windows forced me to reformat my HDD (Even if it was working perfectly no less this morning.. wtf windows!) and I had no backups of my files =/

 

I don't have half of those CD to rip again nor would I have any idea how else to get those files now. I had over 3-4+ years of music on that thing.

 

I feel pretty damn depressed now =/ Can't imagine ever getting a good chunk of that ever again.

 

Just in time for my demo LCD-2's as well! Awesome >_>

I feel your pain, man.

 

I had a hard drive crash last year...and while most of the stuff on it was either backed up or replaceable,

I did lose over 1,000 digital photo's from the previous year.

 

Of course I am now much more diligent about backing my stuff up.

If you've chosen a quick format, it doesn't really 'delete' individual files, it just resets the partition table, so the data still exists.

You can try a hard disk recovery software, its possible to recover some of your files.

There are two kinds of people in the world............those who backup, and those who wish they had.

Never had a crash in 12+ years of using a PC.. I even survived Window ME.

 

These things don't happen to me D:
