One way to clear your desk for the day is to have your hard drive crash. Don’t I wish. That it would clear my desk, that is.
Of course this sounds good but the reality is that your life becomes more stressful because it means lost time â€“ and data.
Every time this has ever happened, it’s nothing short of torture for me. I’d rather have four back-to-back root canals, four days in a row.
Yeah, you guessed it. My hard drive crashed.
Today, the folks at TechRestore say the data is probably not recoverable.
I did find a company with a “clean room” willing to try and save the data, and probably can, but the cost will be (gulp) $900-$2,500. Ouch. What kind of choice does that leave me? Data for $900-2,500 or no data. Jeesh.
BTW, through all this, I also discovered that one way to decrease the amount of email you get is to get a new email address. It’s wonderful to have only a handful of emails in a day. Reminds me of 1996.
If anyone out there has any great insights for me on how I can retrieve my data on my hard drive without breaking the bank, I would love to hear it. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for listening.
