That’s my 2nd dead HDD – trying a solid-state drive now. So far so good. Lost a large batch of pics – drive died before I could post em. Oh well, I make more.
Computer died on me earlier this week. Have a new setup and will be back posting this weekend.
Thanks for the update Earl.
Started to worry about you….
Did it “die suddenly”, or did it have information on Hillary Clinton?
Maybe that’s why Earl hasn’t posted again too
It appears to be self-inflicted, a harddrivecide.
Yeah. They ALL look like that!
I hear you. My head’s on a swivel.
I like SSDs, never had an issue with one (probably just fkd myself)
SSDs can “die”, too. A good, redundant, backup routine is essential for the digital life.
Yes. I haven’t had an SSD fail on me (yet), but I don’t keep anything on my SSDs but applications, and all my files (photos, documents, etc) on other hard drives or USB dongles.
I keep separate backups of all my files on another machine (three copies on two machines) and keep them synchronized via this:
I’ve been using it for about three years and it’s saved my ass more than once.
Download a free backup software such as Cobian 11 and tell it to back you up to a stick or remote HD every day or two or week or whatever, easy peasy no more losey.
