I've crashed again...!
I've crashed again...! –
As some of you know I had a bad computer crash back in december, which forced me to upgrade to a brand new computer which took some time to get to the point where I could again take up continued support and development of the PS2 homebrew projects I'm involved in.
Unfortunately a similar thing has happened again, though not affecting the entire computer system this time. But it is bad enough when the 1.5 TB HDD I used both for booting and for all PS2Dev work as well as all emulation work suddenly decides to pack it in...
I've lost my normal boot setup and all PS2Dev libs and work environment, as well as all VMware setups I could otherwise have used temporarily for PS2Dev work. The replacement HDD I am now using to boot from is much too small for serious work, so I won't be doing much of that until I have been able to replace the big HDD that died on me.
It was still under warranty (less than 2.5 months old), so I should get a new replacement cost-free, but I'm not sure when I will have it, and even less sure when I'll have it back in shape (installation-wise) corresponding to the one that died.
So for the time being my PS2Dev work is on hold, indefinitely...

Damn bro, sorry to hear that....
that sucks. hopefully they can recover the data from the old hdd.
I sure hope you backed up everything, thats a big time loss if you have everything on a single HDD and no place else. I found out the hard way a few years ago when i lost all my files i had only on that one HDD. I now have 2 HDDs identical to each other.
I hope things work out in the end, it would be a shame to loose you from the PS2dev contributions you make. At least we can all still benefit from your knowledge, as theres no one who can replace your wisdom.

Yeah, RAID1 can be good.
I now have 2 HDDs identical to each other.
I have given up on the larger HDD's.
In the past year, I have lost two 1 terabytes, and 3 500gb's.
I think the newer hdd's are faulty, or something.
I still have 80gb and 250gb working non-stop.
For my main data, I have converted over to a double-raid solid state, costly but looks more stable in the long run.
As for your hdd and possible recover of data, I find the best program these days for the newer 500gb+ sata drives is called "HDD Regenerator" made by "Dposoft.net", it is much like the very old but useful "Spinrite" program for those old power-house MFM/RLL/IDE drives of my past.
you should work like linus torvalds :
"i have this theory on the backups : i put stuff online, and everyone else mirrors it"
on the other hand, today's electronics are way too fragile, and barely last until warranty expires. try imagining what awaits us in 10 years from here, following that observation
Ouch. That hurts. Hope nothing too important was on the hdd you've lost. I lost my hdd one week ago, too (seagate 1TB), but I was able to recover all of the data (bought another one, replaced the electronics and copied everything to another drive).
In my case it was a freaking lot of relocated sectors appearing all of a sudden (thousands in few minutes of OS idling). Then the drive went totally unaccessible (even though it was still recognizable). At first I was afraid one of the heads had crashed. Thankfully it wasn't the case.
well happened to me too on 320 GB WD but it was kinda along time ago .i have managed to get back my data by replacing the HDD's motherboard with a working one .
