Default Disaster strikes....

I lost over 100GB worth of high quality MADtv episode captures.... god damn hard drive failure. I have not been this pissed in a LONG time.

I managed to rescue some stuff, but lost a good chunk. Anyone recommend a good NAS RAID device? I think in the mean time I will buy a huge external firewire drive.

Well, I do save some of the sketches that you put up on Sketches of The Week. I also have a T1 connection, so if you know what you're missing, I will be happy to upload them up to you again, if you can't recover any of the files.

I have my sketches still, but lost a few complete seasons of video captures, bits and pieces of others... still running the recovery util, it will take all night to process a 250gb hard drive... wish me luck.

My cousin's boyfriend says that you should have 2 hard drives, that way if one starts to fail the stuff will automatically be transferred to the second drive.

Oh no, that really sucks. How'd it go trying to recover the files?
