Well. Since we last spoke, my music hard drive had just failed, and I quickly rushed to a data recovery place in Irvine to see what magic they could do. What I thought would take two-ish weeks actually took them about a month and some, the whole time my hope of recovering my files dwindling with each passing day. Their final assessment was delivered to me last week: 34% of the drive was able to be recovered, no guarantee on about 6% of that 34%, and definitely all over the place – most likely bits and fragments of albums. It would have cost me something upwards of 2 g’s, so no thanks. However! I found out a friend of mine had backed up almost my whole drive to his some time in 2008, so thankfully I don’t have to start from scratch. Anything I acquired between then and now I’ll simply (ha! simply!) have to scour again and redownload. Ahem, purchase. However However! Anything that I made-mixes or blends-between then and now and is not on the site is definitely long gone. I had a few blends that I’d made and never put up, and now they’re floating somewhere in corrupt hard drive heaven. C’est la mort.
