Technical Difficulties

There is nothing like coming home to a system that is No-Post due to HDD controller failure. Yes, I have backups, but I'd still like to get a more recent backup. Things I can definitely say are helpful...
  • Disk Imaging Software (Acronis, Ghost)
  • Knoppix
So this morning, we are clearing off space to put a secondary drive into primary service while the offending HDD is in the freezer in hopes of JUST ONE MORE BOOT.

*sigh*

Let me know if the freezer works. I've heard people swear by it, but it has never worked for me.

Nope, that drive is BIGTIME dead

Seems my last backup of that drive is in OCT. Enough to get the machine going again, but sadly, much info has been lost.

Oh Well.
