Exactly. Will prolly cost $500+ but tht info is priceless. I've had it happen. Now I have 3 backup external harddrives.Might not be gone...if the data means a lot to you send the drive off to a company that does data recovery...might not be cheap but can usually be done.
Been there, done that, it cost me $100 from a local guy to recover my data, I now have 2 thumb drives with all my backup info so it doesn't happen again....Might not be gone...if the data means a lot to you send the drive off to a company that does data recovery...might not be cheap but can usually be done.
well i may not worry about my 30+ gigs of mp3s. sucks that the gopher db is intergrated into gopherI've had it happen too, but it was for the family computer, not the business one. I only had them recovery the family photo album and my kid's music.
I have a portable USB backup drive now. I back up Quickbooks almost every time I use it...just takes a minute or 2... and I have backups of my letters, forms and pictures too.
If you send the disk out for recovery, give them a list of the most important directories you had info in to keep cost down.
