Tonight I mourn the loss of my 2nd purchased external hardrive. He was my boy...his name that I altered at the devices and drives menu...  ::Sniffs :: His name was HK-47, after the KOTOR Droid..he could hold 250 gigs of data. Last night, his life was taken from me by a USB port....vile nasty port...overloaded and killed him. He was 3 years old and he was holding all of my pirated roms and emulators. All 96 gigs worth. Thank god it wasn't the porn bot.

USB blowouts are a crime that need to be reported to your PC manufacturer and USB harddrive manufactures.

My deepest condolences. :D

Fortunately, you kept a backup copy, right?!

Nope, completely lost. However...

Update. He held a 500gb capacity (partitioned 478). It cost $80.00. I also did an autopsy with the help of a Youtube video. It was a waste of time, but fortunately over the cyber Monday sale I got a 3TB. The memorial service will be held tonight, 7:00pm CST (<--US).

He he he, will this be a ceremonial drop into the bin? Posted Image

I meant to say... I'm sorry for your loss, may it rest in peace.

The disk is dead, long live the disk!

I too bought a new disk, though a mere 2TB. The disc I had plugged into the TV for cartoons died and the backup was in place (made a copy to the new comp just in case, there is A FREAKING LOT of cartoons to redll if the data is lost) so I needed to buy a new one.
