You may or may not be aware that I hired the assistance of a data recovery
specialist last week to try and undo the work of certain evil forces insistent
upon making life a misery.
I have just received news that the hard drive is unrepairable (apparently the
platters were failing). However, all is not lost - the data is now recovered
and waiting to be transferred to a new drive. He is coming to collect the drive
on Tuesday, take it to his office and copy the data back over. If all goes well
I should have the drive back in 3 to 5 working days, so between Friday January
22 and Tuesday January 26. After that, assuming that the data itself is not
corrupted, I will be able to resume what has been a hectic and extremely costly
Put it this way - I could've easily purchased the two dozen hard drives I
wanted to avoid buying for the price of what it cost to recover the data!
