Fistalis mods...harddrive failure

#1 Post by Fistalis » Aug 25 2017

The Harddrive which contained pretty much ALL my mods and modding work has failed and i have been unable to recover it. While i may have back ups of some things.. Any future mods will likely have to be made from scratch... or based on very old back ups. Anything i had previously reposted to drop box is still available.. and again i may have other back ups but no clue how old etc..

Yes my system is quite aged at this point.. i'm actually lucky that harddrive is the only thing i'm having issues with considering I built the system almost10 years ago. That particular drive was carried over from my previous build so it's even older. Mechanical harddrives are usually the first thing to fail though so it's a warning sign i need to start thinking about a new build if/when finances allow. If I had the means i likely would have already have a few new builds since though lol

Edit: I was able to recover a vast majority of files from the harddrive using testdisk. Just a matter of figuring out what i got and whats lost.
