Well, here is the situation I have encountered. I have a 120GB hard drive but was down to 20GB left. I was saving all my movies to disk that I had but stopped doing that cause it was getting expensive bying disks every couple of weeks.
So, I had a 60GB hard drive setting aside to add as my slave drive and went to install it. Everything was fine until I started to tranfer my movies over to that drive. About my 4th movie into the transfer my system locked up and I could not do anything. I went to reboot and when my pc came back on I got failure popups telling me there was a major hardware conflict which caused my C: drive to lose some files..haha lose my ass..I lost 80% of everything I had downloaded and saved over the last 8 months. I tried and tried to recover these files but to no avail.
So, again to make things easier and simple...I put my Windows XP Boot disk in my cdrom, rebooted and deleted everything off my C: drive..reformatted and made a new partition. Reinstalled XP and now I'm off to a fresh start again. Starting today, I went out and bought 200 new disks, set up my second hard drive properly and for now on instead of downloading movie after movie and keeping them on my C: drive..I will transfer them to my 2nd hard drive. Keep them on there for 2 weeks then burn them to disk to keep both drives running smoothly.
I will say that any posted movies I have on here with the sigdat links are no longer valid. I am truely sorry but this was not supposed to happen this way but it did. Starting today, anything I post will be good. Again, sorry for all the trouble and thanks for understanding.
